About AgriDrupal

AgriDrupal was conceived with the aim of providing a standard-compliant tool to support agricultural information management.

Please be reminded that this is an "AgriDrupal demo package", it is not a tool that we officially distribute or maintain: it is only a demo Drupal setup packaged with the features that we find useful for agricultural information management. The versions available for download come with no guarantee and are not maintained.

AgriDrupal is built on Drupal, a 3rd party free and open source Content Management System (CMS). The downloadable version comes with no support, but the huge Drupal community provides all necessary information and the smaller AgriDrupal community is open for discussion.

More up-to-date information is available here.
