I have an issue referencing a document in LaTeX. The correct reference would be:

Harvest Choice, 2006. "Tanzania National Sample Census of Agriculture 2002/2003: Small Holder Agriculture, Volume II: Crop Sector - National Report." International Food Policy Research Institute, Washington, DC., and University of Minnesota, St. Paul, MN. Available online at http://harvestchoice.org/publications/tanzania-national-sample-census-agriculture-20022003-small-holder-agriculture-volume-ii.

I have tried many combinations and the best I could come up with was using the following on bibtex:

@TechReport{TN,
    author = {Harvest Choice},
    title = {Tanzania National Sample Census of Agriculture 2002/2003: Small Holder Agriculture, Volume 2: Crop Sector National Report},
    institution = {International Food Policy Research Institute, Washington, DC., and University of Minnesota, St. Paul, MN},
    year = {2006} 
}

However, this yields 3 problems:

  1. It cannot get to "Harvest Choice" being referenced, I only have: "Harvest, C" as it if were an author

  2. I do not know how to insert the web link.

  3. The reference specifies it is a technical report, which it is not

I had the same issue lately, so maybe this help. But as usually, this is depending on your bibliography style

1 - Use double braces author = {{Harvest Choice}} to avoid the reformatting of things via bibtex

2 - I used the url = {} field and a latex url command within it: url = {\url{yadayada}}

3 - You could try other bibliography styles or edit the .bst file of the one you currently use. But first, you could try the @Misc bibtex entry type with the same fields, maybe it creates the desired outcome.

Note that the OP's posting contains an error -- the organization's name is "HarvestChoice" (no space), not "Harvest Choice"... –  Mico Aug 22 at 14:53
    
You are right, but this is not related to the LaTeX problem. GIGO ;) –  Harald Aug 22 at 15:04

The organization HarvestChoice suggests the following citation of the publication in question:

HarvestChoice, 2006. "[Tanzania] National Sample Census of Agriculture 2002/2003: Small Holder Agriculture, Volume II: Crop Sector - National Report." International Food Policy Research Institute, Washington, DC., and University of Minnesota, St. Paul, MN. Available online at http://harvestchoice.org/publications/tanzania-national-sample-census-agriculture-20022003-small-holder-agriculture-volume-ii.

Observe that there is no space between the two parts of the name of the author. Note also the square brackets around the word "Tanzania".

Translating this into a bib entry, you may want to use the @misc entry type:

 @misc{hc:2006,
  author       = "HarvestChoice",
  title        = "{[Tanzania] National Sample Census of Agriculture
                  2002\slash2003: Small Holder Agriculture,
                  Volume~II: Crop Sector~-- National Report}",
  year         = 2006,
  howpublished = "International Food Policy Research Institute,
                  Washington, DC., and University of Minnesota,
                  St.~Paul, MN",
  url          = "http://harvestchoice.org/publications/tanzania-national-sample-census-agriculture-20022003-small-holder-agriculture-volume-ii",
  }

Observe the placement of curly braces around the title field to prevent the words from being converted to lowercase. Note also the use of \slash in 2002\slash 2003; doing so informs LaTeX that it's permissible to insert a line break after the slash.

Assuming that you're using the plainnat bibliography style and the packages natbib, url (with the option hyphens), and hyperref, you might get the following MWE:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{filecontents}
\begin{filecontents*}{\jobname.bib}
 @misc{hc:2006,
  author       = "HarvestChoice",
  title        = "{[Tanzania] National Sample Census of Agriculture
                  2002\slash 2003: Small Holder Agriculture,
                  Volume~II: Crop Sector~-- National Report}",
  year         = 2006,
  howpublished = "International Food Policy Research Institute,
                  Washington, DC., and University of Minnesota,
                  St.~Paul, MN",
  url          = "http://harvestchoice.org/publications/tanzania-national-sample-census-agriculture-20022003-small-holder-agriculture-volume-ii",
  }
\end{filecontents*}
\usepackage[authoryear,round]{natbib}
\bibliographystyle{plainnat}
\usepackage[hyphens]{url}  % it's important to specify the option 'hyphens' 
\usepackage[colorlinks=true,allcolors=blue]{hyperref}
\begin{document}
\citet{hc:2006}
\bibliography{\jobname}
\end{document}
