Agricultural engineering is a division of engineering that deals with agricultural production and processing. It involves mechanical, civil, electrical, Food science and chemical engineering principles and disciplines with knowledge of agricultural fundamentals. Main objective of Agriculture engineering is to improve the efficacy and sustainability of agricultural practices. Agricultural Engineering has helped in making advances in eco-friendly sustainable agriculture.
Agricultural Engineering has grown into four kinds of activities. They are Power and machinery, Irrigation and drainage, Farm structures and environment, Processing and electrification. Agricultural Engineering mostly focuses on biological engineering, efficient use of irrigation water, renewable energy and environmental issues. The challenges faced by Agricultural Engineering are Food safety and Food security, protecting the species and natural resources and reduced employment status. Proper development in Agricultural Engineering can improve Food security and crop production.
