Abstract:

The aim of this study is to consider the energy consuming process and factors influencing two varieties rice production (Tarom, fajr) under semi-mechanized and traditional systems, to investigate the energy consumption and economic analysis of rice in Mazandaran Province of Iran. Data used in this study were obtained from 76 farmers using a face to face questionnaire method, in farming year of 2011. The results showed that the highest total energy of labor requirements for Tarom variety rice production in Traditional and semi-mechanized systems, respectively, 2148.3 and 1547.1 MJ/ha was calculated. The fajr/ variety because of suitable genetic specifications has higher output energy in compared with Tarom local variety. Highest output energy with average 237701.70 MJ/ha of semi-mechanized system for fajr variety and also 209173.50 MJ/ha for traditional system. The highest energy ratio of rice production was for fajr variety in traditional methods and semi-mechanized, respectively 7.03 and 7.95. The highest Energy productivity (EP) of grain for both traditional and semi-mechanized cultivation systems was for fajr variety, that respectively, 0.20 and 0.22 kg/MJ. The highest Net energy gain was for fajr variety in traditional and semi mechanized systems, respectively, 179.42 and 207.82 GJ/ha that has been calculated. Highest income of rice production with 10834 $/ha (semi-mechanized system) and 9215 $/ha (traditional system) observed in fajr variety. Highest profit of rice production with 10039 $/ha (semi-mechanized system) and 8636 $/ha (traditional system) observed in fajr variety and so According to the results of this research and studying the energy and economic analysis, that the condition of the management of energy consumption in producing fajr varieties are more suitable and according to the need of country about producing rice.
