Agricultural Automation Engineering scientists work to provide engineering solutions to crop production problems in agriculture. From seed to table, our researchers collaborate with the growers, harvesters, and food processors plus the industry that supports them to develop new technologies for the economic growth and environmental sustainability of agriculture.

Current primary research activities include the development of wireless sensor networks for real-time yield monitoring and tracking of fruit; remote and contact sensing of soils and plants; automated and targeted pest management systems; vegetable and fruit post harvest handling; smart and/or robotic agricultural machinery; on-machinery crop sensing and control systems; and sensor-based field operation management.

The Center for Precision Agriculture has additional information.
