Clearinghouse

Farmknowledge.info is a clearinghouse collecting and redistributing expertise and tools from hundreds of different online sources.  Material is auto-collected, auto-indexed, made searchable in different languages and re-distributed amongst our vast wordwide network of smallholder organisations.

On offer

Farmknowledge currently offers over 7000 downloadable practical farm manuals from over 400 online resources. Manuals are findable via 6,375 crop names, via 31,436 pest and disease names, via farm practices and training terms.

Search options (see also the menu items on top):

  • Search page: is as simple as using other search engine like Google, Bing and Yahoo. Just type the name of a crop, a pest, disease or weed in the text box and click apply. You will be presented with a list of search results relevant to your query. You may search in any language. The search result will show the preferred scientific name + the common English name.
  • Crops: offers a search page and glossary in English and Latin. Click on the name to find all details of your selection;
  • Pests: offers a glossary of over 40,000 plant pests, diseases and weeds. Names of the pests and weeds are in Latin. Disease names in English. List presently includes beneficial species.

 Under development

  • Farm-practices A-Z: a glossary of sustainable farm practices. This is work in progress, we are working on the glossary and the indexation service.
  • Training A-Z: a glossary of training terms aimed at collecting and disseminating sustainable farming training curricula. Work in progress.
  • Beneficial species are presently hidden within the pest and disease list. This will soon be separated with the aim of constructing a page on beneficial organisms including beneficial insects (predators and pollinators), beneficial nematodes, pollinaors and companion plants.
  • Crop deficiencies.
  • Resources: Downloadable resources can be found via de crops and pathogen pages. A separate resource search page is under development allowing full text search from within the resources.
