Title: North Dakota Tractor Use Study
Author: Hauck, Duane
Description: In 1982, one third of all energy used in agriculture came from field operations. A study was conducted for the purpose of supplying information on how to make good fuel management decisions. A three season, on-farm fuel study was conducted to help determine fuel requirements of field operations and for tractor efficiency. Fuel consumption could vary due to individual differences on farms. Two and four wheel drive tractors were analyzed separately. It was discovered that combining operations could provide energy savings. Chisel plowing required the most energy. Keeping fuel records helped farmers.
