13. Meeting energy requirements in the food system



13. Meeting energy requirements in the food system



Future dimensions of world food and population: 389-403



The likely impact of diminished energy supplies and increased energy cost upon US agriculture is investigated. No evidence is found that US agriculture is significantly more intensive than the remainder of the economy. An analysis is made of the effects of which more expensive energy will have upon the food system including implications on the use of pesticides and fertilizers, irrigation, field machinery, and livestock.
