Fuel and energy consumption of agricultural mechanization and their management in the field
The large quantities of fuel are consumed during the production process which leads to large quantity emission of pollutants to the atmosphere, wasting money and consequently increase the cost of crop production. Although the newly released agricultural machines have been introduced with developed fuel consumption reduction control systems, still for solving the problem requires complex technical development and technical improvement at the agricultural fields.
Therefore, for agricultural machinery fuel consumption management, during their operational period, the information needs to collect and theoretically and experimentally justify fuel consumption. The efficient planning of mechanized farming operations is a complex task because it involves multiple factors related to the soil, the machine or implements settings, and the man to make decisions.
This webinar base workshop covered the Fuel and energy consumption of agricultural mechanization and their management in the field from a wide range of perspectives.
This Workshop on Fuel and energy consumption of agricultural mechanization and their management in the field conducted from Nov. 30, 2021, to Feb. 21, 2021, in the Rice Research Institute of Iran (RRII), Rasht, Iran. It attends by soil and plant scientists, researchers, and laboratories staffs of RRII.
The workshop speaker was Dr. ROOHOLLAH YOUSEFI, assistant professor (Agricultural Machinery) of the agricultural engineering department of RRII. This workshop covered the following aspects: How to calculate energy flow in the farms, input, and output of energies, calculation of fuel consumption energy, methods of measuring engine fuel consumption, how to calculate energy consumption in terms of electricity, power human training, use of agricultural machinery, use of pesticides and chemical fertilizers, use of seeds, energy, and energy consumption indicators.
