Abstract:

Maize (Zea mays L.) is one of the important crops in India like any other cereal. The energy audit of various resources in the agriculture production plays a key role in management of resources. The study was conducted to work out the contribution of various energy sources in production of maize in Kharif season in Haveri district, Karnataka, India. The data was collected randomly from 40 farmers. The energy ratio, energy productivity, specific energy and net energy gain were computed. The maize production consumed 16701.61 MJ ha-1 of energy with grain productivity of 5766.50 kg ha-1, out of which the fertilizer consumption was 55 per cent followed by FYM (17.48 per cent) and diesel fuel (14.33 per cent). The contribution of direct and indirect energy sources was about 22.63 per cent and 77.37 per cent. The renewable and non-renewable energy sources contributed about 27.58 per cent and 72.42 per cent, respectively. The grain and straw ratio was 1.3:1. The energy produced from the straw was 55447.08 MJ ha-1 with productivity of 4435.76 kg per hectare.


Keywords: Energy ratio, Specific energy, Maize production, Net energy.
