AGROVOC was first developed in the 1980s as a multilingual structured thesaurus for all subject fields in agriculture, forestry, fisheries, food and related domains (e.g. environment). Its main purpose was to standardize the indexing process for the AGRIS database in order to make searching simpler and more efficient, and to guide the user to the most relevant resources. In the last 10 years, use of AGROVOC has considerably expanded to the point where it is now a tool for organization of explicit knowledge and development of ontologies and multilingual search functionality. AGROVOC has been transformed into a concept server as well as a term-based thesaurus. (Excerpt from Wikipedia article: AGROVOC)
