Short summary (English)

Basic research interest of Ag Eng Department stuff is focused to applied research covering following topics: - the ways to prevent and decrease soil compaction induced by tractor's wheels, - ecological, economic and energetic effects of different tillage systems to main arable crops production, - possibilities of orchard and vineyard pruning residues utilization as a heating energy source. All research include environment protection aspect as carbon dioxide (CO2) emission reduction, soil degradation reduction and finally decreasing energy consumption.

Short summary (Croatian)

Osnovne istraživačke teme su u grupi primjenjenih istraživanja i obuhvaćaju slijedeće: - načini smanjenja i spriječavanja zbijanja tla kotačima traktora, - ekološki, ekonomski i energetski efekti različitih sustava obrade tla u uzgoju važnijih ratarskih usjeva, -mogućnosti korištenja ostataka rezidbe u voćnjacima i vinogradima kao energenta za grijanje. Sve istraživačke teme uključuju aspekt očuvanja okoliša smanjenjem emisije ugljik dioksida, degradacije tla i utroška energije.
