Abstract
The Institute originated in 1961 as the Division for Agricultural Engineering within the Department of Agriculture and was originally responsible for the testing of mechanisation implements. These activities extended to include the testing of nearly all equipment used in agriculture including irrigation equipment and eventually also included research and development of equipment, methodologies, processes and standards within all the facets of Agricultural Engineering. During the early 1980's pioneering work was done on the development of sunflower oil as an alternative for diesel fuel.
