Title : Energy assesment of spring wheat cultivation technology
Summary :

A field study was carried out in 2011-2012 at the Research Station Brody belonging to Poznan University of Life Sciences. The experiment was assumed with blocks randomized in four repetitions. The objective of the study was to determine the size and structure of energy inputs incurred as a result of catch crop and varied field cultivation systems of spring wheat production use. It was found that the use of catch crop from white mustard sown after skimming resulted in the increase of the accumulated energy input by 13.7 per cent and in direct sowing technology by 31.5 per cent as compared to the treatment where catch crop was not cultivated. Replacement of plow tillage with

a cultivation aggregate decreased accumulated energy inputs by 9.3 per cent. The value of energy efficiency index was the lowest at spring wheat in plow technology and there was significant difference as compared to the other technology.
