​Our ideals at ​Besphel

New ideas and developed technologies in agricultural occupation depend to a large extent on scientific research results and diversity which are responsible for increased agricultural production. Hence, the author documented his research and teaching experiences in various fields of agricultural engineering, horticultural machinery, safety and machine design technology as well as, editorial reviews.

​Availability of these ebooks will ​​acquaint students and researchers and prospective technology scholars with requisite knowledge and skills in machinery ​principles, design, ​application and safety during operation.


About author

Agricultural mechanization

​Introductory note

The dynamic nature of agricultural operations and the complexity of agricultural machinery are indices of scientific research diversity as evident in the widespread requirements in agricultural operation and sustainable production. New ideas and developed technologies in agricultural occupation depend to a large extent on scientific research results and diversity which are responsible for increased agricultural production.

The dynamic nature of ​these operations and machine complexity are indices of such scientific research diversity as evident in the widespread requirements in agricultural operation if increased production must be sustained.

These subject matters are ​arrayed in the following books ​:

Horticultural mechanization

Introductory note

​The technological processes of harvesting, handling, processing, preservation and storage of horticultural crops cannot be fully appreciated without recourse to a good understanding of the fundamentals of the biological nature of the crops, the composition of the crop, crop utilization potentials as well as the nutritional qualities from the viewpoint of their behaviour under prevailing or modelled atmospheric conditions.

Two books had been written by the author to fully x-ray the fundamental issues in fruit and vegetable processing technologies. The books equally described various machinery in fruit processing and preservation.

Safety and machine operations

Introductory note

These books help students acquire requisite knowledge and skills in basic workshop technologies & practices, workshop management, organization and handling of tools and machines in preparations to meet the demands of the manufacturing and processing sector of our economy. The books equally addressed various technologies in machine element design, construction and machining. The books offered users appreciably safe-work environment and the influences it has on the effectiveness in production as well as experiences that will guide him ineffective job delivery without incidences of hazards, injury or accident.

Sustainable agriculture

​​Introductory note

Sustainable development is a positive socioeconomic change within an environment or industry that does not undermine the ecological and social systems upon which communities and social systems are dependent. Sustainability in agriculture, therefore, implies a changing agricultural system such that farmers are able to produce indefinitely. The problems of the intensive agricultural production system are becoming major concerns to agricultural research and policymakers in both developed and developing countries.

Sustainability of agricultural production system represents the last step in a long evolution of the protection of natural resources and the maintenance of environmental quality. The books in this series were research contributions ​bordering on agricultural environment, its sustainability, production systems and renewable energy resources to mitigate adverse environmental consequences as a result of human activities.

​​Related issues are widely discussed by invited contributions in chapter form in these books.

Wood technology

Introductory note

​The listed books on wood and woodwork technology ​were written to acquaint students with the knowledge of wood as an engineering material and also to provide requisite practical skills, to meet the demands of wood preparation, product engineering and finishing.

The books in this category were prepared to satisfy the requirements of the institutional framework in wood anatomy, wood handling, manufacturing technology and woodwork practice in the monotechnics, polytechnics and Universities curricula.

Monogram

Introductory note

Students handbook presents detailed information on complete teaching and practical curriculum contents for individual courses at the National Diploma and Higher National Diploma programme in Agricultural & Bioenvironmental Engineering Technology in accordance with the National regulatory bodies on education and UNESCO as a guide to building a successful career in engineering technology. The monograms are low volume research finding and training documents published periodically to adequately inform students of the recent development in chosen careers.
