Energy Use in Agriculture is a comprehensive and quantitative textbook that presents the current state of knowledge on energy in various agricultural sectors, including energy classifications, energy efficiency, energy conservation, and institutions that promote and work on different energy sectors. The book provides a global and country-level perspective on the energy scenario, as well as an overview of energy supply and consumption in the agricultural sector.

This book is primarily designed to serve as a template for energy-related surveys and crop production-based energy use calculations, using worksheets for a range of commercially important crops, such as paddy, cotton, sugarcane, groundnut, sorghum, and green gram. Additionally, the book includes information on energy-related policies and acts that benefit farmers, the environment, and sustainability, as well as potential alternative sources of renewable energy.

To enhance the reader's understanding and comprehension, the book features several flowcharts and pictures. It is an ideal reference for students, teachers, and researchers working on energy-related aspects in agriculture.
