The increase in the global population presents a substantial challenge for agricultural production. The main task of agriculture is to ensure food security. In recent years, agriculture has faced a new challenge, namely biomass-based energy production. Meeting these requirements while maintaining the principles of sustainable development is only possible through the utilization of recent achievements in agricultural and biosystem engineering. Innovative solutions used in agricultural production focus on the rational management of natural resources based on energy and gas emissions balancing. Agriculture 4.0 plays an important role in sustainable management. Artificial intelligence technologies allow the maximization of production while also caring for the natural environment.
This Special Edition is dedicated to the impact of all the innovative agricultural engineering solutions on environmental protection and the reduction of gas emissions.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. AgriEngineering is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1000 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
