AGROVOC team takes this opportunity to inform you about the AGROVOC November 2018 release. Note that starting April 2017, the FAO - AGROVOC multilingual thesaurus has been updated on a monthly basis (see all AGROVOC releases). 

You can search and browse for AGROVOC concepts and terms in SKOSMOS.

As of November 2018, AGROVOC counts:

  • Number of concepts : 35,966  (up from 34,576 one year ago)
  • Number of terms : 678,040  (up from 660,348 one year ago)

covering (in up to 30 languages !) topics related to food, nutrition, agriculture, fisheries, forestry, environment and related sectors. 

Quite a few people use agrovoc-test to see the AGROVOC backend. In case you use VocBench: please note that AGROVOC content editing is now on VocBench3. A new registration for VocBench3 is needed. Web services and SKOSMOS links have not changed.
