The Applied Research & Agrotechnology has quarterly basis periodicy and is linked to the Center for Agricultural Technology (NATA-PR) and the Department of Agronomy at the Universidade do Centro Oeste do Paraná - UNICENTRO.

The policy considers on the first moment that the article must meet the requirements of the journal regarding the maximum number of authors, formatting of text and graphical elements and presentation of bibliography. If verified discontinuities the article returns to the author for correction prior. Met the basic requirements, the article will be sent for review of a pair of ad hoc reviewers of expertise in the area of knowledge related to the research topic, and may be approved or be directly suggested fixes. The editor will make the decision based on the opinion of the reviewers. In case of discrepancies between the evaluators, a new opinion may be requested in order to obtain a better judgment.  for publication process.The approved articles will be translated in full into English and abstract in Spanish, or as needed, according to the language of the original text. The journal provides a review of basic writing in Portuguese, but the quality of the writing and grammar are the responsibility of the author. The order for publication of articles considers the timing of approvals and also the distribution of themes in the areas of publishing. The Agrotechnology & Applied Research Magazine is published with printed ISSN 1983-6325 and electronically e-ISSN 1984-7548. Are not provided separated prints to the authors. The articles should be submitted for publication exclusively by Applied Research & Agrotechnology.

Applied Research & Agrotechnology


      The objective of Applied Research & Agrotechnology is the publication of scientific articles, technical notes and reviews, originating from original research in the field of Agrarian Sciences and its interfaces with the environmental sciences, aiming to contribute to scientific and technological development and collaborate with the diffusion of knowledge and interaction with its applications.

      The scope of the journa is constituted of publications in the lines of Precision Agriculture, Mechanization and Agricultural Machinery, Storage of Agricultural Products and post harvest, Agricultural Aviation, Agricultural Climatology and Meteorology, Energy and Rural Construction, Soil Physics, Geoprocessing and topography, Water Resources, Systems in Hydraulics and Irrigation, Technology OF Agricultural and Forestry Production.

      The foundation of this journal is based on the tradition of the Universidade Estadual do Centro Oeste and in the spirit of production and scientific contributions from researchers in the field of Agricultural Sciences. The solidification is complemented through a representative Editorial Board and Acting Editorial Board, which counts on the support of the Scientific Committees and Reviewers, “Ad Hoc", composed of distinguished colleagues from different institutions, who kindly accepted the task of facilitating the ongoing construction and solidification of this magazine.

     We would like to celebrate each release of a new number, remembering those who have dedicated their lives to science, such as Albert Einstein, who in his autobiography that describes ... "The curiosity of research is like a delicate plant which more than stimulus, needs freedom, and, if deprived of it, gets weaker, and dies". We hope that researchers in the field of Agricultural Sciences always feel encouraged to act in a system where the scientific search is accompanied by the responsible scientific freedom due to research and disseminate knowledge. We aim that the main result of this process is the affirmation of a future scientific and technologically developed, and at the same time, balanced and sustainable, where information is not seen as a form of power, but rather as a tool for establishing greater equality among people.

     We invite all researchers and the research community of Agricultural Sciences to be part of the Applied Research & Agrotechnology, through the dissemination of research results, access to new information, the participation of the accessors committees with the own interaction with the editorial board. Thanks to all who contribute to make possible the steady growth of this journal and wish that the Brazilian Journal of Applied Technology in Agricultural Sciences is perpetuated in a lifetime of fruitful collaboration with the scientific diffusion and interaction with their applications for building a world increasingly better for everyone.
