Engineering Interventions in Agricultural Processing presents recent advanced research on biological engineering, bioprocessing technologies, and their applications in agricultural food processing, and their applications in agriculture science and agricultural engineering, focusing on biological science, biological engineering, and bioprocessing technology. With contributions from a broad range of leading researchers, this book presents several innovations in the areas of processing technologies in agriculture. The book is divided into three parts, covering

  • agricultural processing: interventions in engineering technologies
  • novel practices in agricultural processing
  • agricultural processing: health benefits of medicinal plants

With contributions from a broad range of leading researchers, this book presents several new innovations in the areas of processing technologies in agriculture that will be helpful to researchers, scientists, students, and industry professionals in agriculture.
