Direct and indirect energy audit in arable crop production and mitigation possibilities

Direct and indirect energy use in arable farming was analyzed. Denmark and Greece were used as example cases. Based on this analysis, suggestions for mitigation of energy use are suggested. Final report is finished and submitted early 2011.

Report on optimized fleet management to reduce energy consumption and costs-Rep.3:“Data and Information Requirements"

Deliverable 6.3 is titled “Preliminary report on optimized fleet management to reduce energy consumption and costs “. Its objectives are:
a) to investigate the potential savings in energy consumption and production cost by optimising single and multiple machine (fleet) machine usage at the farm level
b) to investigate the required data, information flow and information management for optimised farm mechanization management comprising single machines or fleets of conventional, or autonomous machines.
The deliverable consists of three reports.

Report 1:

Report on Demonstration of prototype robotic systems

The Field Robot Event 2009, the FutureFarm demonstration of prototype robotic systems and the Joint International Agricultural Conference (JIAC) were held in parallel at the centre of Wageningen University’s campus, Wageningen the Netherlands, 6-8 July 2009.

Report on The potential of on-farm biofuel production

The energy flows of European farms were studied in this paper. The energy balance of two crops that can offer edible oil or oil for energy production was presented. The rape seed is one crop most adapted to the North of Europe and sunflower for the South. The energy balance showed that the energy consumption for production is generally lower than the energy output giving a positive net energy a prerequisite to use them for energy production.
