Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research
"The CGIAR's research agenda focuses on both strategic and applied research. This agenda includes the entire range of problems affecting agricultural productivity and links these problems to broader concerns about poverty reduction, sustainable management of natural resources, protection of biodiversity, and rural development. More than 8,500 CGIAR scientists and scientific staff conduct research to improve the productivity of tropical agriculture. This research focuses on higher-yielding food crops and more productive livestock, fish, and trees; improved farming systems that are environmentally benign; better policies; and enhanced scientific capacities in developing countries."
The Core Historical Literature of Agriculture (CHLA)
"...is a core electronic collection of agricultural texts published between the early nineteenth century and the middle to late twentieth century. Full-text materials cover agricultural economics, agricultural engineering, animal science, crops and their protection, food science, forestry, human nutrition, rural sociology, and soil science.
