Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM) reports:

AEM must engage in the discussion surrounding "big data" in agriculture, the AEM AG Sector board decided at their meeting on July 15 in Boston, Massachusetts.

During the meeting, the board heard from representatives of the Open Ag Data Alliance (OADA) and AgGateway regarding their respective approaches and initiatives related to the management of "big data" generated by modern production agriculture.

The board directed AEM to work more closely with both groups to assure that AEM members are involved in the outcome of their efforts. In addition, the board said AEM should help to harmonize any data standards or formats the two groups develop.

In other actions, the board:

•Approved the exploration and potential development of a Latin America agricultural statistics program proposed by the AG Equipment Latin America Regional Management Committee (AG LA RMC) earlier this year.

•Concurred on a recommendation to hold the 2015 Ag Executive Forum in conjunction with Farm Journal's Top Producer seminar in Chicago in January, and the 2016 Forum in conjunction with the new AG CONNECT/Commodity Classic event in New Orleans in March.

•Supported the objectives and dissemination plans of a "global impact statement" collateral piece that illustrates the essential role of agricultural equipment manufacturers in feeding the world and fueling the global economy.
