What is AGRIS?

AGRIS (International System for Agricultural Science and Technology) is a global public database providing access to bibliographic information on agricultural science and technology. The database is maintained by CIARD, and its content is provided by participating institutions from all around the globe that form the network of AGRIS centers (find out more here).  One of the main objectives of AGRIS is to improve the access and exchange of information serving the information-related needs of developed and developing countries on a partnership basis.

AGRIS contains over 8 million bibliographic references on agricultural research and technology & links to related data resources on the Web, like DBPedia, World Bank, Nature, FAO Fisheries and FAO Country profiles.  

More specifically

AGRIS is at the same time:

A collaborative network of more than 150 institutions from 65 countries, maintained by FAO of the UN, promoting free access to agricultural information.

A multilingual bibliographic database for agricultural science, fuelled by the AGRIS network, containing records largely enhanced with AGROVOCFAO’s multilingual thesaurus covering all areas of interest to FAO, including food, nutrition, agriculture, fisheries, forestry, environment etc.

A mash-up Web application that links the AGRIS knowledge to related Web resources using the Linked Open Data methodology to provide as much information as possible about a topic within the agricultural domain.

Opening up & enriching information on agricultural research

AGRIS’ mission is to improve the accessibility of agricultural information available on the Web by:

  • Maintaining and enhancing AGRIS, a bibliographic repository for repositories related to agricultural research.
  • Promoting the exchange of common standards and methodologies for bibliographic information.
  • Enriching the AGRIS knowledge by linking it to other relevant resources on the Web.

AGRIS is also part of the CIARD initiative, in which CGIARGFAR and FAO collaborate in order to create a community for efficient knowledge sharing in agricultural research and development.

AGRIS covers the wide range of subjects related to agriculture, including forestry, animal husbandry, aquatic sciences and fisheries, human nutrition, and extension. Its content includes unique grey literature such as unpublished scientific and technical reports, theses, conference papers, government publications, and more. A growing number (around 20%) of bibliographical records have a corresponding full text document on the Web which can easily be retrieved by Google.

The aim of this research was to study the effect of the stand composition on the density of pine and spruce wood growing on former arable lands. Sample areas are located in mixed mature pine- and spruce-prevailing stands in Leningrad region, Russia. For the reliable determination of the basic density of spruce and pine wood, selection of model trees was carried out and cores were taken. Based on the data obtained from stems of 36 model trees from 3 sample plots, conversion equations were calculated to determine the basic density of wood.

The objective of this study is to assess the qualitative and quantitative characteristics of pine (Pinus sylvestris) and spruce (Picea abies) stands growing on lands that were previously in agricultural use in the Leningrad region. Sample areas of mature mixed pine-and-spruce prevailing stands were studied. The taxation has revealed that the average height and diameter of the stands under study are greater than those in mixed modal stands of these species on forest lands. The analysis of the results of the study was performed by dispersion, correlation and ranking methods.

The aim of the study is the selection and analysis of the most relevant fertilizers–meliorants, assessment of their application in the reclamation of irrigated agricultural land. The research was based on experimental and theoretical methods of analysis, generalization, comparison of data. The carried-out characteristic of the fertilizers–meliorants used for reclamation of agricultural lands allowed to allocate, complex fertilizers–meliorants which include industrial waste and natural sorbent–meliorants.

High water requirement of flood irrigated boro rice is of great concern because water is becoming scarce and expensive day by day. Dry direct seeded boro rice, grown in unpuddled and unsaturated/aerobic soil condition, requires only 50-60% water as compared to traditional flooded transplanted rice, and therefore it could be adopted as a water saving rice cultivation system in boro season of Bangladesh. Moreover, it offers a unique opportunity to grow winter leafy vegetables as intercrop. But high weed infestation is one of the major constraints in dry direct seeded boro rice.

В статье проведен анализ динамики почвенного плодородия по результатам мониторинга состояния земель сельскохозяйственного назначения Северо-западной и Восточной природно-сельскохозяйственных зон Ростовской области, который показал снижение этого показателя за 30 лет на величину более 16%. Рассмотрены основные факторы, влияющие на процесс дегумификации, к которым относятся водная эрозия, дефляция, а также нерациональное использование земель сельскохозяйственного назначения.

The article considers the reform of the economy of Uzbekistan and the formation of market–based management mechanisms. Also, it is covering various spheres of life and the activities of society. In addition to these processes, land relations are also involved in these processes, which occupy an important place in any economic system, land resources, as natural potential, are the necessary natural basis for any material production, and in agriculture and forestry — the main means of production.

Rural households are displaced from their lands without any plan in place to resettle or compensate them, for a promise of improvement in their living standards. This has not only resulted in a decline in the living standard of the rural populace, in terms of loss of land and livelihoods, the poor are also further marginalized and impoverished. This study examines the welfare implication of domestic land grabs among rural households in Delta State, Nigeria, employing primary data obtained from one hundred and seventy-three representative farming households.

При недостатке органических и минеральных удобрений, а также финансовых и технических средств особое значение приобретает рациональное использование севооборотов (правильного чередования культур во времени и пространстве) и учет природных особенностей агроландшафтов при проектировании систем земледелия. Работа посвящена анализу мониторинговой информации по урожайности культур зернотравяного севооборота в пределах мелиорированного агроландшафта. Вариантами опыта являются элювиальные, транзитные и аккумулятивные местоположения и их сочетания на вершине и склонах моренного холма.

The topic about shared real estate and ownership of landed property has become important only in the latest years. In connection with the rise of estate tax, the land’s cadastre value and the lease of land, the contradictions have also become more aggravated in shared real estate’s situations, which had occurred at some point when land reforms and privatization took place.
