Agriculture Dictionary is a very interesting application, developed for Android, with a vast collection of terms related to Agriculture, Farming, Animal Husbandry, Crops, Fruit, Livestock, Products, Agricultural Machines and Engineering, Agricultural Policy, European Union policies, Weather, Environment, Economics, Information & Communication Technologies and for each one of them a brief description is given. The dictionary accepts English keywords and returns English descriptions. It is compiled by European Union Agricultural Accounting & Statistics experts, hence containing more than 8800 terms & abbreviations and being online and constantly updated.
The application is essentially a search form with a brief result screen, nothing more. However, since it focuses on constantly updated terms, as drawn from experts' opinions, the dictionary database is thorough and larger through time. It is quite useful for students and journalists but unsuitable for farmers or researchers who want to know more about what they are looking for. There is room for scalability by adding alphabetical listing of terms,cross-reference by keywords, links and images per term, multilingual approach and suggesting more words to be added by users.
