  • 1 Institute of Soil Science, Agricultural Technologies and Plant Protection «N. Pushkarov», Bulgaria


The specificity of agricultural production implies several months of intensive use of the majority of equipment and a longstorage period. Checking the quality of storage of agricultural machinery, controlling all operations, is economically impractical. It is necessary to select the main (key) operations from the whole list of operations, ie. those that provide a reliable assessment of the quality of storage of machinery.
The proposed methodology makes it possible to streamline the assessment of the quality of storage of machinery in agriculture, choosing the main operations, without losing information from the fact that the operations that contain a smal l amount of information are not controlled.
