These proceedings contain the papers presented at the 3rd IFAC/CIGR Workshop on AI in Agriculture, held at Chiba in Japan during April 1998. Four major global issues, namely, a shortage of food, a shortage of fuel energy/natural resources, environmental pollution and instability of various ecosystems, will become increasingly critical in the early 21st century when the world population is predicted to reach nearly 10 billion. It is hoped that the papers included in these proceedings will contribute to solving the above global issues, improving the quality of research and widening the application fields of artificial intelligence in agriculture.
