Agricultural engineering is a branch of engineering which focuses on agricultural production and processing. Agricultural engineering considers the principles of mechanical, civil, chemical and electrical engineering and its main aim is to improve the sustainability and efficacy of agricultural practices.
Individuals specialised in the discipline are known as agricultural engineers. Those engineers usually focus on specific areas such as the design of agricultural machinery, climatology and atmospheric science, seeding and harvesting, waste management, food engineering, agricultural resource management and biosource engineering.
Agricultural engineers usually perform tasks such as planning, supervising and managing different agricultural systems as well as perform environmental impact assessment and interpret research results to implement relevant practices.
Agricultural engineers can be specialised in the production and design of agricultural machinery, which is a type of tool used in farming or other forms of agriculture. There are different types of agricultural tools which range from hand tools to power tools to tractors. Different arrays of equipment are used both in organic and non-organic farming. With the development of mechanised agriculture, agricultural machinery has become indispensable.
