Due to a lack of precise and exact terms of reference, the Internet features very little content related to agriculture. Agropedia, one of the world's first agricultural knowledge repositories built from semantic, collaborative, and social networking metaphors, bridges this gap via agricultural knowledge models. Creating vibrant and diverse communities requires careful planning as well as an open, yet flexible, protocol. Agropedia, through its peer-reviewed scientific content contributed by agricultural research institutions and its community-generated interactive folk knowledge, brings together the expert community and the user community. The shorter, printed article is available online at http://doi.ieeecomputersociety.org/10.1109/MIC.2010.109.
