The AgroPortal project reuses the biomedical domain’s semantic tools and insights to serve agronomy, but also food, plant, agriculture and biodiversity sciences. We offer a portal that features ontology hosting, search, versioning, visualization, comment, and recommendation; enables semantic annotation; stores and exploits ontology alignments; and enables interoperation with the semantic web. The AgroPortal specifically satisfies requirements of the agronomy community in terms of ontology formats (e.g., SKOS vocabularies and trait dictionaries) and supported features (offering detailed metadata and advanced annotation capabilities). The AgroPortal content is automatically retrieved by ( and the Agrisemantics Map of Data Standards (
