Agricultural and Biosystems Engineering

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

STANDING in the field, unhusked corn is undamaged and can last almost indefinitely in that state with-out diminishing its food value. Deterioration begins with the mechanical process of harvesting, and practically every subsequent operation in drying, transporting, and handling further decreases the quality of the grain. The rate of deterioration is dependent on the initial injury sustained during such mechanical processes, particularly the harvesting operation. During harvesting, the kernels are subjected to damaging impact and compressive forces that result in breaches of the seed coat or cracks in the pericarp of the kernel.
