What is the yearbook?

In days of information overload, it is helpful and necessary to get access to qualified summaries with references to selective details.

The Yearbook of Agricultural Engineering provides concentrated knowledge of numerous experts in the field of Agricultural Engineering. Well-arranged in subject areas, the contributions resume the activities and results of scientific work and give an overview over current technological developments and trends in this sector. The reader can pursue the individual developments by employing each contribution’s reference lists as a current source of information. Most contributions appear regularly in the first half of each year. The publishing interval may be longer for specific subject groups.

All contributions are exclusively published online in German or in English. A scientific peer review is optional for every author.


The yearbook is edited by Prof. Dr. Ludger Frerichs, director of the Institute of Mobile Machines and Commercial Vehicles of the Technische Universität Braunschweig.

The authors of the yearbook provide their time and competence as experts from the industry, organizations and from science. The same applies for the reviewer in the peer review. At this point a big thank you to all authors and reviewers for their commitment!

The publication of the yearbook is supported by the Institute of Mobile Machines and Commercial Vehicles and the Max Eyth Society on Agricultural Engineering of the VDI, the German society of engineers.


The editor sincerely thanks the company AMAZONEN-Werke and the CLAAS Foundation for the financial support for the revision of the current Yearbook-Website!
