Energy Problems, Conservation, and Extension/Research Needs for Northeastern Agriculture

  • George B. Rogers (a1) and George E. Frick (a2)

Extract

The purposes of this paper are: (1) to outline some of the reasons for the energy problem and to discuss current philosophies for solving it, (2) to evaluate energy use in Northeastern agriculture, particularly in production, (3) to suggest some possibilities for conserving energy, and (4) to delineate some areas for future extension and research activities.
