ready AGROVOC


General Information
AGROVOC is a controlled vocabulary covering all areas of interest of the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations, including food, nutrition, agriculture, fisheries, forestry, environment etc. It is published by FAO and edited by a community of experts. AGROVOC consists of over 36,000 concepts available in up to 33 languages. You can use AGROVOC to look up the common name of a plant in a language that you do not master, or to find relations between a commodity and the crop from which it is produced. Your library can use AGROVOC to index its documents, or you can use it from inside your content management system (e.g., Drupal) to organize your documents or web site. You can also use AGROVOC as an hub to access many other vocabularies available on the web. To date, AGROVOC is used by researchers, librarians and information managers for indexing, retrieving and organizing data in agricultural information systems and Web pages. Currently, AGROVOC is an SKOS-XL concept scheme and a Linked Open Data (LOD*) set aligned with 18 other multilingual knowledge organization systems related to agriculture. You may browse AGROVOC, access its Web Services or SPARQL endpoint.

International information system for the agricultural science and technology
The International System for Agricultural Science and Technology (AGRIS) is a multilingual bibliographic database that connects users directly to a rich collection of research and worldwide technical information on food and agriculture. Maintained by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), AGRIS has been serving users from developed and developing countries through facilitating access to knowledge in agriculture, science and technology since 1975.

BonaRes Repository
The BonaRes Repository stores soil and agricultural research data from research projects and long-term field experiments which contribute significantly to the analysis of changes of soil and soil functions over the long term. Research data are described by the metadata following the BonaRes Metadata Schema (DOI: 10.20387/bonares-5pgg-8yrp) which combines international recognized standards for the description of geospatial data and research data. Metadata includes AGROVOC keywords.
