We propose Crop Vocabulary(CVO) as a basis of the core vocabulary of crop names that becomes the guidelines for data interoperability between agricultural ICT systems on the food chain. Since a single species is treated in different ways, there are many different types of crop names. So, we organize the crop name discriminated by properties such as scientific name, planting method, edible part and registered cultivar information. Also, Crop Vocabulary is also linked to existing vocabularies issued by Japanese government agency and international organization such as AGROVOC. It is expected to use in the data format in the agricultural ICT system.
