AbstractNowadays it is necessary to define actual global research trends in discipline in order to determine the major research topics, discoveries and global scientific networks. The goal of this work was to determine the main topics and research trends in agricultural engineering. For this caser the method of modified bibliometric analysis was applied. Such analysis of this keywords frequency occurrence and the links between the keywords in Biosystem Engineering Journal shows that in the three analysed periods, certain keywords, invariably remain dominant. These are “model”, “systems”, “temperature” and “water”. The highest number of publications was qualified CIGR section: Information Technology. It can be therefore, stated that in the recent period the most intensively developing researches were dedicated to the applications of IT tools in creation various types of models allowing to simulate and optimize agricultural processes. A majority of publications covered decision-making support (Decision Support Systems), image analysis application, and automation of agricultural processes.
