Özet

The aim of this research is to determine an energy use efficiency of maize production during the production season of 2015 in Bingol province of Turkey. The data collected has been analyzed for the energy of maize production. The energy input in maize production have been calculated as 28504.54 MJ ha(-1). The energy output in maize production have been calculated as 120640.28 MJ ha(-1). Energy use efficiency, specific energy, energy productivity and net energy values related to maize production have been determined as 4.23, 4.80 MJ kg(-1), 0.21 kg MJ(-1) and 92135.74 MJ ha(-1), respectively. The consumed total energy input in maize production could be classified as 49.99% direct, 50.01 indirect, 34.16% renewable and 65.84% non-renewable. As evaluated results, maize production is a profitable production in terms of energy usage.
