Rational energy policy-making for agriculture must originate from objective and detailed assessment of current energy use in that sector. Such an assessment allows for effective priorization of energy re search and accurate targetting of information, training and financial programs directed at agricultural energy use. A previous paper (Gayton 1982) examined trends of total direct energy (diesel, gasoline, nitrogen fertilizer) con sumption by the agriculture sector as a whole. This paper focusses on direct, variable energy use in a single year (1980) and assigns average energy consumption values to nine different individual farm types and several different on-farm energy end-use components.
