In the name of the Committee of Agricultural and Biosystem Engineering of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences we would like to welcome everyone who is interested in reading our journal. The Hungarian Agricultural Engineering (HAE) journal was published 32 years ago for the very first time with an aim to introduce the most valuable and internationally recognized Hungarian studies about mechanization in the field of agriculture and environmental protection. In the year of 2014 the drafting committee decided to spread it also in electronic (on-line and DOI) edition and make it entirely international. From this year exclusively the Szent István University’s Faculty of Mechanical Engineering took the responsibility to publish the paper twice a year in cooperation with the Hungarian Academy of Sciences. Our goal is to occasionally report the most recent researches regarding mechanization in agricultural sciences (agricultural and environmental technology and chemistry, livestock, crop production, feed and food processing, agricultural and environmental economics, energy production, engineering and management) with the help of several authors. The drafting committee has been established with the involvement of outstanding Hungarian and international researchers who are recognized on international level as well. All papers are selected by our editorial board and a triple blind review process by prominent experts which process could give the highest guarantee for the best scientific quality. We hope that our journal provides accurate information for the international scientific community and serves the aim of the Hungarian agricultural and environmental engineering research.
