Mr A K M Abdullah Al Amin

Elizabeth Creak Fellow (PhD Researcher)

Researcher Profile

Mr. A. K. M. Abdullah Al-Amin is an Elizabeth Creak Fellow working as a PhD researcher at Harper Adams University (HAU) in the United Kingdom. He is on the staff of the Bangladesh Agricultural University (BAU), Mymensingh, Bangladesh as an Assistant Professor. In Bangladesh he was awarded the “University Prize” and “Prime Minister Gold Medal-2014” for his excellent academic performance at Bachelor level. His research interests encompass the economics of agricultural technology, especially precision agriculture focused on autonomous crop machines, climate change adaptation, environmental impact assessment, and ecosystem services conservation.

Mr. Al-Amin’s PhD research focuses on the "Economic Assessment of Autonomous Equipment for Field Crops". His research hypothesizes that autonomous crop machines are an economically feasible alternative to conventional machinery with human operators, subject to field size and shape, field biodiversity enhancement, and environmental sustainability. In the last decades, owing to population and economic growth, agricultural labour scarcity, technological advancement, increasing requirements of operational efficiency and productivity, and the environmental footprint of agriculture, agricultural automation and robotics have received substantial attention. Even though robotic systems for livestock and protected environment have developed more rapidly, the development of autonomous crop machines for arable farming has primarily concentrated on establishing technical feasibility, and more specifically on the development of computer optimization models and software tools for on-field operations. Considering the complexity of crop field operations, it is important to focus on the overall systems analysis and understand the economics of autonomous crop machines, as economic implications would play a crucial role in attracting investment, guiding adoption decisions, and further understanding of environmental and social benefits.
