Resource: Report (NCAT) – Farm Energy Calculators: Tools for saving money on the farm

Agricultural producers depend on energy, an important input to production. Direct costs of energy, such as fuel and electricity, paired with indirect energy costs in the form of fertilizers and chemicals, can significantly affect farm net revenues, especially as the price of energy continues to rise. Minimizing direct and indirect energy consumption on farms in the United States can lead to considerable savings. This publication introduces and provides links to a variety of farm energy calculator tools.
