OpenTEAM is made up of a vast community of producers, researchers, businesses, and organizations. OpenTEAM Hubs will serve as a primary testing ground for the OpenTEAM platform, and their experience and feedback will inform OpenTEAM’s user interface design and calibration of the tools that are part of the OpenTEAM platform. Hubs are a center for a representative group of fa... and network members make up the backbone of OpenTEAM. These farms and ranches will provide the social and technical infrastructure encompassing representative regional production systems in the U.S. to scale adoption of soil health management practices. Hubs will be the primary locations for field testing OpenTEAM, and once the platform is ready for wider release, they will serve as ambassadors to help build the on-farm user network. Network members will also play an integral role in testing the technology and platform as it is developed, but will have a more informal role in platform development with fewer reporting requirements.
