Data Interoperability & Architecture in Agriculture
Thursday, January 27th, 11:00am-12:00pm EST
The work that the OpenTEAM community is putting in today will go towards the creation and maintenance of an open, accessible agricultural technology ecosystem that would house a cloud-based computing infrastructure and shared software services to accelerate the rate of soil health discoveries and impact on the ground. By developing trust and creating Interoperability is a characteristic of a product or system whose interfaces are completely understood to work with othe…, OpenTEAM can foster collaboration and use of this data in research and markets while enabling data sovereignty, security, and protection for farmers and ranchers. Sign up for this webinar to learn more about this technical architecture, development of interoperability and trust, and the importance of data sovereignty within the agricultural technology ecosystem we are building.
Applying Equity in Practice in Regenerative Agriculture
Thursday, February 3rd, 1:00-2:00pm EST
In 2021, OpenTEAM introduced an equity lens to the work that we do so that we can design a technology ecosystem that is more accessible, equitable, and universal for the diverse group of farmers and food companies that are a part of it. Creating a toolkit that is Open source is a publicly accessible software design that can be modified and shared by multiple users. This allows the …, Interoperability is a characteristic of a product or system whose interfaces are completely understood to work with othe…, and free to use will open pathways for increased involvement from a wider scope of the agricultural community. Through a working group and a recent Collabathon series, OpenTEAM and its members are developing the knowledge necessary to implement these equity principles into practice in In biology, regeneration is the process of renewal, restoration, and growth that makes cells, organisms, and ecosystems … agriculture and the ecosystem we are building. Sign up for this webinar to learn about the equity principles and how they are being weaved into the agricultural technology ecosystem and toolkit that we are building.
Cultivating Community & Breaking Down Silos
Thursday, February 10th, 1:00-2:00pm EST
One of the core functions of OpenTEAM is to convene farmers, ranchers, scientists, researchers, engineers, farm service providers, and food companies from across the global agricultural landscape to develop an Interoperability is a characteristic of a product or system whose interfaces are completely understood to work with othe… technology ecosystem that serves each of their needs. Through Pre-competitive collaboration utilizes a collective approach to bring together a diverse group of stakeholders to create… partnerships across traditional boundaries, OpenTEAM is co-developing new approaches to collaboration and governance structures, both socially and digitally. In 2022, we will be creating new facilitation structures for community engagement with farmers and ranchers in support of an equitable agricultural technology ecosystem. Sign up for this webinar to learn how OpenTEAM functions as a convener and what structures are being created or are already in place to build broader collaboration efforts across the ecosystem.
Continual Improvement & Measurement in Soil Health
OpenTEAM is bridging science and technology to fill the gap between soil health testing protocols and the tech ecosystem we are building. For scientists to make data comparable from across the ecosystem, scientific protocols and methodologies must be standardized, efficient, and robust for a range of farm management practices. Through the design of shared technologies and methodologies, OpenTEAM is creating flexible and adaptable protocols for various research goals, management systems, climates, and regions. By developing more consistent field methods when soil testing and using various OpenTEAM tools, farmers and researchers can integrate and compare more data with each other. Sign up for this webinar to get an overview of this process, why creating consistent methodologies is necessary, and how it creates a technology ecosystem that is sustainable.

Creating an Ag Tech Ecosystem Through Trust, Technology Stewardship, and Local Adaptability
In order to create a sustainable ecosystem of technology, OpenTEAM is building trust with collaborators and technologies, improving Interoperability is a characteristic of a product or system whose interfaces are completely understood to work with othe… among systems, and adapting tools for soil health practices locally. OpenTEAM has collectively designed the functional core and framework for transparency in our food system and laid the groundwork to accelerate future development that is responsive to the needs of end users. This framework is not theoretical – it is built and actively used by a diverse global network of farms, farmer networks and other organizations.
