FARM STRUCTURES

This field of study emphasises research on appropriate structures for agricultural machinery and implements, structures for the storage of agricultural produce, structures for animal husbandry, structures where the environment is specifically controlled to enhance animal comfort and increase productivity in agricultural practices. For the controlled environment structures, research is needed where mechanisms for controlling the environment with special needs are desired. Design and application of automation include the use of computers, controllers and sensors to enhance lighting requirements, temperature controls, and automated water requirements control. Other areas of research interest include semi-mechanically controlled environment structures, cooling systems for naturally ventillated tropical greenhouse, fertigation system for temperate crop production, mechanised systems for production in greenhouses, emerging technologies in controlled environment production systems, etc.
