Agricultural engineering includes appropriate areas of mechanical, electrical, environmental, and civil engineering, construction technology, hydraulics, and soil mechanics. Agricultural engineers attempt to solve agricultural problems concerning power supplies, the efficiency of machinery, the use of structures and facilities, pollution and environmental issues, and the storage and processing of agricultural products. Agricultural engineers work in a variety of industries. Some work for the federal government, and others provide engineering contracting or consultation services, or work for agricultural machinery manufacturers. Although they work mostly in offices, they also may spend time traveling to agricultural settings. If you become an agricultural engineer, your work will often revolve around two issues: a growing world population and the reduction of farmland. You may have to figure out how to keep land fertile when over-planting drains it of essential minerals, find a way to water crops without depleting water sources or create methods of growing more crops in smaller areas of land. The first thing you'll do as an agricultural engineer is to examine the problem. For example, you may examine a crop that grew well but is now failing even though the farmer hasn't changed anything. You'll look at contributing factors like erosion, seed quality and mineral depletion. You'll analyze the irrigation system to see if it needs to be altered or if the water has become contaminated. Your job as an agricultural engineer will be to discover what factors cause this problem and ways to solve it. To do this, you'll have to understand hydration, biology, agriculture and a host of engineering systems. Once you understand what the problems are, you can begin to apply research and design skills. You might look at other cases that had the same problems and examine the solutions used in those instances. You may find that this area has unique challenges and a new type of equipment must be designed to address them. As an agricultural engineer, you may even be called upon to design a new type of packaging that preserves the crops longer after harvesting or prolongs the usability lifespan of a product after it's been processed. Here in this book one will acquire detailed information about subjects given below: 1,FUNDAMENTALS 2,ENGINEERING MECHANICS 3,FARM POWER 4,Hydrology and Water Resources Engineering 5,IRRIGATION AND DRAINAGE ENGINEERING 6,PRINCIPLES AND PRACTICES OF CROP PRODUCTION 7,PRINCIPLES OF AGRICULTURAL ENGINEERING 8,SOIL SCIENCE AND ENGINEERING 9,TRACTOR SYSTEMS AND CONTROLS Apply knowledge of engineering technology and biological science to agricultural problems concerned with power and machinery, electrification, structure, soil and water conservation, and processing of agricultural products. Agricultural engineers work in a variety of industries. What Agricultural Engineers Do Agricultural engineers attempt to solve agricultural problems concerning power supplies, the efficiency of machinery, the use of structures and facilities, pollution and environmental issues, and storage and processing of agricultural products. Duties of Agricultural Engineers Use complete software to design equipment systems, or structures • Modify environmental factors that affects animal or crop production, such as airflow in a barn or runoff pattern on a field. • Test equipment to ensure its safety and reliability. • Oversee construction and production operations. • Plan and work together with clients, contractors, consultants, and other engineers to ensure effective and desirable outcomes. Agricultural engineers work in farming, including aquaculture (farming of seafood), forestry and food processing. They work on a wide variety of projects for example, some agricultural engineers work to develop climate control systems that increases the comfort and productivity of livestock, whereas other work to increase the storage capacity and efficiency refrigeration. Many agricultural engineers attempt it develop better solutions for arrival waste disposal. Those with computer programing skills work to integrate artificial intelligence and geospatial systems into agriculture for example, they work to improve efficiency in fertilizer application or to automate harvesting systems. Important Qualities for Agricultural Engineers • Analytical skills. Agricultural engineers must analyze the needs of complex systems that involve workers, crops, animals, machinery and equipment and the environment. • Communication skills. Agricultural engineers must understand the needs of clients, workers, and others working on a project. More so, they must communicate their thoughts about systems and solutions to any problems they have been working on. • Math skills. Agricultural engineers use calculators, trigonometry and other advanced mathematical disciplines for analysis, design and troubleshooting. • Problem-solving skills. Agricultural engineers’ main role is to solve problems found in agricultural production. Goals may include designing safer equipment for food processing or reducing erosion. To solve these problems agricultural engineers must creatively apply the principles of engineering.
