Encyclopedia of Agricultural, Food, and Biological Engineering is the largest and most comprehensive guide on raw production technology with more than 3000 references and nearly 2000 photographs, figures, tables, and equations.

Examining the role of engineering in delivery of quality consumer products, this expansive source covers the development and design of procedures, equipment, and systems utilized in the production and conversion of raw materials into food and nonfood consumer goods - emphasizing and illustrating the various engineering processes associated with the production of materials with agricultural origin.

From forest and aquaculture products to biological materials and energy sources, the Encyclopedia offers step-by-step coverage of every system and application utilized in the production of agricultural crops and commodities - discussing tractors and implements, as well as current harvesting, handling, drainage, and irrigation techniques.

Highlights of the Second Edition:

  • Applies engineering concepts and principles to production agriculture, including the design of machinery and structures used and the management of water required for these operations
  • Gives specific attention to crop production, including the harvesting, storage, and handling of major and minor crops
  • Focuses on animal production, including all aspects requiring engineering inputs
  • Covers food handling, storage, processing, packaging, and distribution, with specific emphasis on the design of facilities, equipment, and processes needed to deliver safe and high-quality food products to the consumer
  • Addresses unique processes associated with the preservation of foods, using thermal processes, refrigeration, dehydration, and similar processes
  • Explores the more basic engineering concepts associated with biological systems
  • Presents the common fundamentals that have evolved with other biological systems, including those in the environment and in humans

Setting a gold standard in the publishing industry, the Dekker Agropedia Collection will stand as the most trusted compilation of resources in the agricultural sciences. The Collection offers:

  • Quick and convenient perusal of highly influential topics including: food, water, crop engineering pest management, animal maintenance, and soil cultivation
  • Constant updates guaranteeing a wealth of new information every year
  • Editorial and advisory boards comprised of recognized specialists, pioneering scholars, and key-note researchers
