Since 1905, the Department of Agricultural Engineering, now the Department of Agricultural and Biosystems Engineering (ABE), has been a leader in providing engineering solutions to agricultural problems in the United States and the world. The department’s original mission was to mechanize agriculture. That mission has evolved to encompass a global view of the entire food production system–the wise management of natural resources in the production, processing, storage, handling, and use of food fiber and other biological products.

History
In 1905 Agricultural Engineering was recognized as a subdivision of the Department of Agronomy, and in 1907 it was recognized as a unique department. It was renamed the Department of Agricultural and Biosystems Engineering in 1990. The department merged with the Department of Industrial Education and Technology in 2004.

Abstract
Drainage water recycling captures and stores agricultural drainage water for reuse as supplemental irrigation. Drainage water recycling can both increase crop production and benefit downstream water quality. Depending on management, drainage water recycling can also provide other complementary benefits. Research needs to advance drainage water recycling are presented and discussed.
