Effects of energy price rises, energy constraints, and energy minimization on crop and livestock production activities

, : Effects of energy price rises, energy constraints, and energy minimization on crop and livestock production activities. North Central Journal of Agricultural Economics 1(1): 5-14

This analysis is designed to assess the impact of rising energy prices and constrained energy supplies on a representative Iowa farm and to evaluate the feasibility of adopting energy-conserving technologies within an integrated farm system. Linear programming solutions for a representative farm indicate insensitivity to moderate increases in energy prices. These results are not unexpected since direct energy costs account for less than 8% of total agricultural production costs.
