This report establishes on-farm energy use benchmarks for selected agricultural sectors in Australia, which include grain cropping, horticulture, dairy, beef, sheep, pork and chicken meat. Opportunities for further research and energy savings through improved management and adoption of renewable energy are also identified. This information will allow growers/producers to make informed decisions about their energy management strategies and upgrading production facilities.
