As worldwide demand for energy continues to rise and conventional non-renewable resources continue to dwindle in supply, the need for new, environmentally conscious ways to meet society’s energy requirements are becoming increasingly important. ENERGY AND AGRICULTURE is designed to introduce you to the role that agriculture can play in helping to satisfy the world’s energy demands. The use of agriculturally based fuel systems, also known as biofuels, as a means to supply energy to our technological society, provides environmentally safe, renewable energy options for all aspects of life, including industry, transportation, and electrical power generation. By providing a solid foundation in the energy and resources used historically combined with a look at future options toward more sustainable resources ENERGY AND AGRICULTURE provides a solid understanding of one of the most important issues of the twenty-first century.
