Today’s agriculture has a crucially irreplaceable role in solving one of the most ubiquitous issues which is to meet the food demand of a rapidly increasing world population. The latest agricultural engineering, in terms of advanced machinery and technologies in agriculture, has substantial input on meeting those demands as well as fulfilling farmers’ needs.
Agriculture, also known as farming, consists of subsequent farming processes such as tilling, seeding, fertilizing (liquid and granule), irrigating, harvesting, etc. Each farming process is powered by specific agricultural implements and technologies which require experts in advanced machine design to cope with the field variability. Therefore, a thorough understanding of the latest agricultural machinery, technologies, and engineering solutions implemented in the above-mentioned farming processes is of crucial importance to eliminate the undesired effects of field applications and to enhance crop production and its sustainability. Improvements and progressive engineering solutions for agricultural machinery design can result in successful field applications.
This Special Issue aims to cover a wide range of theoretical and experimental research contents that are related to farming processes from ploughing to harvesting. This also includes the implementation of leading-edge technologies in the mentioned farming processes, and new and innovative or additional instrumentation of agricultural implements to communicate external farm data sources for better performances, relating to the fields of agricultural engineering. All types of articles, such as original research, opinions, and reviews are welcomed by this Special Issue.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Agriculture is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2600 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
