Energy in Agriculture

   Agriculture consumes significant quantities of energy, especially in industrialized countries. Farmers use energy directly to heat buildings, operate equipment, pump irrigation water and transport products. Agriculture also consumes large quantities of fossil fuel indirectly as inputs for fertilizer and pesticides.

   Conference "Energy in Agriculture" deals with the actual problems of the rational and economical applications of electricity and other energy sources in connection with the electricity in the agriculture, especially with the rational use of the renewable energy sources considering the aspects of the protection of the environment. It is the second international conference organized by the members of Section 4 CIGR in Olsztyn (Poland) devoted to this topics.
