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 32,000 concepts available in 23 languages: Arabic, Chinese, Czech, English, French, German, Hindi, Hungarian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Lao, Malay, Persian, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Slovak, Spanish, Telugu, Thai, Turkish and Ukrainian. 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 Data (LD) set aligned with 16 other multilingual knowledge organization systems related to agriculture. You may download AGROVOC, access its Web Services or SPARQL endpoint.
