Standardization of data : Agdatahub appointed by the Numagri association

Published on 20.01.2021

In addition to its data exchange and consent solutions, Agdatahub also provides operational consulting services related to data. As part of this activity, the company has been selected by the Numagri association to carry out its agricultural data standardization project.

Numagri brings together the main agricultural organisations (FNSEA, Jeunes Agriculteurs, La Coopération Agricole, Chambers of Agriculture), several interprofessions of the agricultural sector and Avril’s foundation around a single goal: to arrive at a common language for digital agricultural data that will be useful to all operators in the same sector. Indeed, nothing is more costly and time-consuming for all players than having to develop additional interfaces for each supplier.

As the notion of data standardization is closely linked to the notion of exchange, Numagri has chosen to place its trust in Agdatahub, whose API-Agro data exchange platform is the leader in France and Europe.

Standardization at the service of data platform interoperability

The association and the company have structured an approach operationally steered by Agdatahub within the framework of the Investment Programme for the Future through the call for projects (of which Agdatahub is the winner) Support and transformation of the sectors: Pooling of resources for the service of the sectors and digital platforms of the sectors, instructed by Bpifrance on behalf of the State and endowed with public funding. This project includes a component dedicated to the standardization of agricultural data.

As provided for in the objectives and resources contract signed by Numagri and Agdatahub for a period of three years, as part of its operational support, the company will be at the service of the sectors in their efforts to formalise the use cases selected by Numagri and will analyse existing standards.

Finally, Agdatahub will provide support for communication and operational deployment of the standards. Each interprofession will be able to choose its standardization agency, including GS1 France.
