    Since the early 1980’s, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) has coordinated AGROVOC, a valuable tool for classifying data homogeneously, facilitating interoperability and reuse. AGROVOC is a multilingual and controlled vocabulary designed to over concepts and terminology under FAO’s areas of interest. It is the largest Linked Open Data set about agriculture available for public use and its greatest impact is through providing the access and visibility of data across domains and languages.

    The first edition of The AGROVOC Editorial Guidelines 2020 (FAO, 2020) was published to share clear, concise and agreed guidelines to guarantee consistency and coherence on selection of concepts and terms. Focus areas included whether to use the singular or plural in each language, how to deal with proper names, scientific names, and geographical names, etc. In 2021, an AGROVOC Editorial Guidelines task force, with members from Empresa Brasileira de Pesquisa Agropecuária, Kuratorium für Technik und Bauwesen in der Landwirtschaft e.V. and FAO, continued to deepen editorial discussions, which resulted in the second edition of The AGROVOC Editorial Guidelines 2020. In this second edition, additional guidance has been added on scientific names, spelling, definitions and more. This guide is a set of editorial recommendations for adding content to AGROVOC, with a strong focus on multilingual aspects. The guidelines also apply to sub-vocabularies in AGROVOC.
