The AGRIS team is thrilled to announce that 112,574 additional records from 13 data providers have been published in the International Information System for the Agricultural Science and Technology (AGRIS). AGRIS now boasts 11,861,859 total records.

In a world where the need for access and understanding of open data and data management becomes increasingly more important for food security and nutrition, the FAO Scientific Information and Digital Data for Innovation team behind AGRIS is thrilled to continue to provide access to nearly 12 million bibliographic records. 

By participating in AGRIS, organizations’ publications are helping to bridge the access gap for scientific literature, exposing it to an international audience through the wide distribution of AGRIS. The AGRIS team wishes to thank all of the data providers that contributed to the addition of 112,574 new records (listed below):

In 2019, AGRIS launched the Open Data Set Initiative, which provides great opportunity to increase analysis of agricultural performance through the use of open data, and consequently help inform agricultural investment, innovation and policy to drive changes toward increasing sustainability in the agricultural sector, which matches the goal of living in a world with zero hunger.
