Energy Analysis of Agricultural Exploitations under Rain-Fed Continental Conditions in Central-Northern Spain

P. Ciria, C.S. Ciria, P. Pérez & J.E. Carrasco
The study of energy balance and efficiency of real agricultural exploitations and an analysis of the influence of some parameters, like the size of the exploitation, are important aspects that require to pay more attention in order to optimize the net biomass energy produced per land unit and energy production efficiency.The main objective of this study is to evaluate and analyze the energy balance and the efficiency of seven agricultural exploitations of different size (from...
