A helpful tip for doing AGROVOC searches in SKOSMOS: SKOSMOS searches only in concepts having a label starting with the input value. So, if you search for "regis" you will find, for example "registration" and "registered designation of origin", but not "deed registration". If you want to search for all concepts having a label containing such input value, you need to put  *  before and after, so, for example, you can input *regis* and you will get many more results.

We want AGROVOC concepts/terms to be useful and relevant for you.
