Opportunities for reducing on-farm energy use and greenhouse gas emissions in sugarcane † [Full subscriber]

Agricultural producers are currently aware of increasing energy costs associated with diesel and electricity. This has occurred at a time where the scientific and political debate on climate change is ongoing and there is conjecture on the best policy instruments to be used in response. In parallel to this discussion, the on-farm assessment of direct energy inputs (i.e. diesel and electricity) enables farmers to react positively to the potential of rising energy costs while contributing to a reduction in greenhouse gasses (GHGs) regardless of the scientific and policy debate surrounding climate change and emissions reduction. Work undertaken by the National…
