Compiled by the U.S. National Agricultural Library (NAL), AGRICOLA consists of over 4.9 million citations to journal articles, monographs, theses, patents, software, audio-visual materials, and technical reports. It also has links to 357 full-text titles.
The records describe publications and resources encompassing all aspects of agriculture and allied disciplines. This includes plant and animal sciences; forestry; entomology; soil and water resources; agricultural economics, engineering, and products; alternative farming practices; as well as food and nutrition.
Auxiliary subjects that support NAL's Information Center activities--such as agricultural trade and marketing, rural information, and animal welfare--are also included in the database.
AGRICOLA covers material from 1979 to the present.
