Agriculture plays an important role in the economy of all countries in the world. In agricultural policies, it is aimed not only agricultural production in sufficient quantity and quality, but also the protection of the environment and the economic development of rural areas. Agricultural production is closely related to the economy, environment and energy consumption. About 1/3 of the total energy consumption in agriculture is spent on fuel. Production method and area are very important factors for fuel consumption. Therefore, it interacts with all policies in these areas. The need for energy as an input in agricultural production can determine the profitability of production, which greatly influences the producer’s investment in advanced agricultural systems. Diesel fuel and lubricant oil values consumed per unit production area (ha) by the tractor engine used during agricultural production processes are evaluated as the total fuel consumption. Therefore, economically cost-effective energy measures are needed and at the same time commitments to reduce carbon emissions are made.
