Agricultural Machinery Development and Management

Agricultural machinery development are required to maximize the productivity and address the solution of labor shortages throughout the world. In a long run, the machinery implementation in the south east asian countries require an efficient management system under the contract hiring process. The medium and small size farms could get the advantages of machinery utilization and increase production. Our team and my graduate students have been working to develop innovative site-specific machinery development in the southeast asian countries incorporate with Internet of Things (IoT). Some of our recent publications are listed.
