Chris Baker

Dear Alex, and Agrisemantics WG members,
Your email about RDA’s Adoption Week is very timely. I am actively involved
in a study to identify the adoption of Agrisemantics and have produced a
survey to measure this. It can be found here:
and also here:
The main aim of this project is to gain an understanding of the
commonalities of adoption of Agrisemantics of all communities. From these
common themes we wish to identify the drivers and roadblocks to the
adoption of AgriSemantics in private industry as well as possible
blindspots in the current development of publicly available resources. A
secondary aim of this study is to publicise Agrisemantics to decision
The current COVID crisis has exposed the fragility of Agricultural Supply
Chains. Agrisemantics facilities interoperability and has the potential to
distribute the risk by allowing the ad-hoc integration of small suppliers
into larger supply chain systems. This distribution of risk removes single
points of failure in Supply Chains which are created by small numbers of
large suppliers. However many decision makers are unaware of this. It is
hoped that this study will raise awareness how Agrisemantics can benefit
Agricultural companies.
Our study builds on discussion at two previous Agrisemantic events
In addition to the survey we are interviewing key stakeholders in the
Agrisemantics community.
If you are interested to share your opinions please let me know and we can
set up a call.
With thanks
