Abstract:

The pattern of energy utilize in cultivation of lentil crop was studied under traditional and partially mechanized farming system. It was observed that the total operational energy was found to be 7364 MJ/ha and 10036 MJ/ha in traditional and partially mechanized farming system respectively. Out of which 37.59 and 59.44 percent was utilized by direct source of energy in different farming systems, whereas 62.4 and 40.5 percent was utilized by indirect sources of energy. The total energy cost in traditional farming system was Rs12175/ha. Similarly, the cost of energy in partially mechanized system was Rs13890/ha. This difference clearly indicates that traditional farming system can be replaced by partially mechanized farming system with more return.


Keywords: Partially mechanized farming system, Energy ratio, Energy productivity etc.
