LandPKS Celebrates OpenTEAM Launch
LandPKS joins Open Technology Ecosystem for Agricultural Management (OpenTEAM) to increase interoperability among ag tech tools.
LandPKS celebrated the launch of the OpenTEAM collaboration over the past few weeks.
OpenTEAM, or Open Technology Ecosystem for Agriculture Management, is a partnership founded by the Wolfe’s Neck Center for Agriculture & the Environment, Stonyfield Organic, USDA’s LandPKS project, and the Foundation for Food and Agriculture Research (FFAR).
OpenTEAM aims to increase the ability for farmers to easily move across tools and better transfer and share information. LandPKS participated in the opening working group meeting held in Denver in late September. At the meeting, participating OpenTEAM members discussed strategic plans and began identifying concrete ways to increase compatibility and share information across tools.
The following week, OpenTEAM organized a ceremonial launch at the Wolfe’s Neck Center in Maine. LandPKS demoed our app alongside all of the OpenTEAM partners. LandPKS looks forward to collaborating with the OpenTEAM partners to increase access to knowledge for sustainable land management.
