Agriculture Engineering  
 
 

Agriculture Engineering is a branch of engineering which deals with the designing, production, processing, development, mechanization, and automation with the efficient planting, harvesting, storage, and processing of farm commodities. Agricultural engineering combines the disciplines of mechanical, civil, electrical, and chemical engineering with a basic understanding of biological sciences and agricultural practices.

A graduate who specializes in this field is known as an agriculturist. Agricultural engineer is the person who plans the heating, cooling, ventilation, postharvest handling and find better ways to reduce crop loss from field damage, during handling, sorting, packing and processing, and helps to make farming sustainable, safe, and environmentally friendly. Agriculture Engineers use new technologies and methods to increase yields, improve land use, and conserve resources like seed, water, fertilizers, pesticides and fuel.
