Abstract

This paper presents the energetic results of sunflower crops under different irrigation doses, fertilizers and soil operations. The results regarding the energy (produced, consumed and energetic balance) and measured in Mcal/ha taking into consideration water supplies and the machines used for the soil reflect high values. While the sunflower production was modest, the energetic balance was high for all the factors because of the energetic content of the products. The value determined for the sunflower production confirms the fact that this crop is very profitable when the factors are offered at the level demanded by the crop, the energy volume is very high and the volume of the consumed energy is very low.
