The study of cropping inputs from an energy point of view is the subject of this memoir.
"Energy Assessment of inputs and agricultural and forest production. "
Alternatives to these inputs and their effects on the yields of energy crops will be addressed; The societal aspect focuses on the peasant world will be underlying.
You will thus find:
Energy Assessment of 15 crop input for sunflower and corn.
Creating an energy equivalency bank for each input for calculating the energy efficiency of crops.
Application for energy crops:
1) Direct combustion seeds
2) Pure vegetable oil
3) oils Esters
4) Ethanol Fuel
Paralleling ethanol production the USA and France.
