Use the 'source URL', so the one on the main page you have provided or under source URL in the detailed page.

Taking the 1st record, the URL would be http://www.fao.org/figis/geoserver/wms/ Note that for the specific example you have provided, the service at eusoils.jrc.ec.europa.eu/wrb/wms_Threats.asp?_= is not working. You can try by using the given URL in a web browser.

Once you have the proper URL, you can follow this tutorial to load the data in QGIS.
