This book introduces readers to the basic principles involved in agricultural engineering and the major problems inherent in managing land and mechanical devices--the two biggest resources in any agriculutral enterprise. The second edition examines basic prinicples and technical information for a wide range of topics, and then presents typical problems -- along with recommended solutions. Revised and expanded chapters cover the five technical areas of the American Society of Agricultural Engineers: and new topics include air conditioning and refrigeration, wind and water issues, biological products, and erosion and its control. With its focus on methods and techniques of problem solving, this book is an invaluable text for agricultural engineering courses and students.
