AHT101 Research Skills Guide: Use Industry Websites

Agricultural Industry Websites

Relevant industry websites can be useful when seeking background information for your assessment topic and can be a great place to start your research. 

Below are listed some major agricultural industry websites. To locate industry websites that are not listed, use a search engine such as Google and search for your required industry name, for example "bean growers association". Your subject coordinator may also be able to supply a list of more specialised reputable industry websites.

When using any website remember to always evaluate the site to ensure that the information it contains is of a scholarly nature and appropriate for use in university assessment tasks. You can use the CRAP test to evaluate the information you find on websites or check out the How to evaluate internet sources video and Evaluate internet resources box on this page for tips on how to evaluate internet sources.

Evaluate internet resources

The website domain provides you a hint as to the reliability of the website at which you are looking.

.edu (educational institution)

.gov (government)

These are more likely to be reliable and unbiased.

.org (non-profit organisation)

.asn (non-commercial organisation)

Sometimes these organisations may show a bias toward one side of a topic.

.com (commercial site)

.net (network)

Critically evaluate these sites as they may be unreliable.
