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

This study was conducted to determine the effectiveness of various cleaning and upgrading equipment in removing shrivelled seeds from drought-damaged soybean seedlots. The conditioning line, consisting of an air-screen cleaner, spirals and a gravity table, successfully improved quality, but at the cost of a high number of discards. Shrivelled seeds removed during conditioning were significantly lower in seed weight, seed volume, and bulk density that the normal seeds. KEYWORDS. Soybean conditioning, Drought damage.
