AgriDrupal extends Drupal, an open source content management system, with ready-to-use functionalities for agricultural information management.

AgriDrupal is conceived as a light and easy-to-use tool - it requires a basic LAMPP environment - whose adoption can be sustainable also in small institutions with little information technology support.

The added value of AgriDrupal compared to a vanilla installation of Drupal is that an AgriDrupal installation already contains the necessary content types, taxonomies and views to manage a basic agricultural information system.

To test Agridrupal, you can use the test package 0.7.10.
