The Agriculture Network Information Center (AgNIC)

The Agriculture Network Information Center (AgNIC) is a voluntary alliance of the National Agricultural Library (NAL), land-grant universities and other agricultural organizations, in cooperation with citizen groups and government agencies.

AgNIC focuses on providing agricultural information in electronic format over the World Wide Web via the Internet. One of the objectives of AgNIC is that member participants take responsibility for small vertical segments of agricultural information (including basic, applied, and developmental research, extension, and teaching activities in the food, agricultural, renewable natural resources, forestry, and physical and social sciences) and develop Web sites and reference services in specific subject areas.

The collective AgNIC Web resource will benefit all members in ways that they cannot achieve on their own, thus justifying the local costs of participation. Each official institutional member of AgNIC commits to certain activities in support of the Alliance and its work.

It covers subjects of:-

  • Agricultural Economics
  • Entomology
  • Government, Law and Regulations
  • Animal and Veterinary Sciences
  • Extension and Education
  • Plant Sciences
  • Aquaculture and Fisheries
  • Farming and Farming Systems
  • People, Organizations and History
