Original Article


Studies related to energy use efficiency in Turkey and the World is one of the most important indicators for determining energy efficiency in agricultural production. In this study, previous studies related to the energy use efficiency of agricultural production in fruit areas in Turkey and the world have been included. Studies related to fruit production have been assorted and then the calculations of the indicators of energy input, energy output, energy use efficiency, energy productivity, specific energy and net energy, used to determine energy use efficiency in production areas, have been placed into tables. According to the study results, among energy inputs in fruit production chemical fertilizer consumption and fuel consumption are the most commonly used inputs. Summarized and tabulated as such, these indicators will serve as a collective resource for comparison and assessment purposes during studies to be conducted on energy use efficiency in fruit production.
