Energy Management

Farmers and ranchers can cut input costs, maintain production, protect soil and water resources, reduce the nation's dependence on fossil fuels, and save money by increasing their energy efficiency. Producers may generate cost savings from maintaining their animal housing ventilation and heating systems with energy-efficient fixtures and equipment, or improve their irrigation efficiency by converting systems from medium or high pressure to low pressure systems. Precision agriculture can prevent overlap and reduce application of fertilizer and pesticides, thereby reducing costs. Increasing efficiency can help reduce business costs and help land owners manage risk over the long term. (Source: NRCS)
