About About WikiProject Agriculture[edit]

Welcome to WikiProject Agriculture. Wikipedians have formed this collaboration resource and group dedicated to improving Wikipedia's coverage of agriculture and the organization of information and articles on this topic. This page and its subpages contain their suggestions and various resources; it is hoped that this project will help to focus the efforts of other Wikipedians interested in the topic. If you would like to help, please join the project, inquire on the talk page and see the to-do list below.

Goals[edit]

This Project aims primarily to provide a consistent article structure for agricultural related topics while striving to develop and improve said agriculture articles. The goal is to make Wikipedia a comprehensive source of factually accurate, neutral articles that include relevant, credible facts.

Namespace Wikipedia.svg Scope[edit]

This WikiProject strives to develop and improve articles at Wikipedia related to crop production, livestock management, aquaculture, dairy farming and forest management. The project also covers related areas, including both governmental and NGO regulatory agencies, agribusiness, support agencies such as 4H, agricultural products including fertilizers and herbicides, pest management, veterinary medicine and farming equipment and facilities.

Assessment

Agricultural philosophy I rewrote this article as the original one was more like a personal reflection. Please review it and let me know what you think. Thanks. Dyname42 (talk) 18:55, 1 August 2011 (UTC)

Importance of AGRIS should be upgraded as it is of "immediate need to have a suitably well-written article on it" for Agriculture researchers. An expert contribution should be sought. Cheers.--Connection (talk) 08:03, 6 December 2013 (UTC)

Looking for a collaborator in building out the International Fertilizer Development Center article. Thanks! Jnthigpen (talk) 15:38, 9 April 2014 (UTC)

Stub templates[edit]

For stubs, always use:

This tag should be placed at the bottom of the article page (below any categories and templates other than other stub templates). This is in addition to assessing the article as "|class = stub" on the talk page. If the article is already tagged with {{stub}} replace it with one of the above tags but leave any other appropriate topic specific stub templates.

Category:cattle stubs, Category:horse stubs Category:goat stubs and Category:sheep stubs now have dual-parentage, they feed into both Category:mammal stubs (or Category:even-toed ungulate stubs) and Category:livestock stubs, there is no need to list any other Category:biology or Category:Agriculture stubs if you use one of these stub tags. Although upmerged, {{domestic-pig-stub}} also has dual parentage, being upmerged into both Category:livestock stubs and Category:even-toed ungulate stubs. On the other hand, the tags below do not feed into Agriculture categories, do not use these tags in place of an Agriculture stub template above, rather use them together with an Agriculture stub template.

For Birds[edit]

For Mammals[edit]

See Mammal stubs

For Plants[edit]

Also: {{plant-disease-stub}} and very generally {{botany-stub}}, if needed.

Tag with all appropriate non-duplicative stub templates (e.g. don't tag with both {{Legume-stub}} and {{Faboideae-stub}} - only use the more specific {{Faboideae-stub}} if it applies), as these assist other editors in searching for stubs in topics they are interested in working on and may assist other projects in finding stubs related to their subject area (e.g. Wikipedia:WikiProject Botany in the case of plants). Additionally, some of these stubs may eventually feed into Agriculture as additional stubs, it will be easier if they are already tagged.

Other[edit]

There is also {{Veterinary-med-stub}}

Infoboxes[edit]

Livestock and Poultry[edit]

We need suggestions for an infobox probably something like {{Infobox Horse}} and {{Infobox Chickenbreed}}; see ongoing work at Wikipedia_talk:WikiProject_Agriculture/Infobox.

Cultivars[edit]

Use the format at Wikipedia:WikiProject Tree of Life/Cultivar infobox

Navigational boxes[edit]

{{Cereals}} produces {{Apples}} produces {{USDA agencies}} produces {{Cherries}} produces {{sheep navbox}} produces
