Determination and modelling of energy consumption in wheat production using neural networks : "A case study in Canterbury Province, New Zealand"
(Lincoln University, 2011)
New Zealand farmers practice a form of 'industrialised‘ agriculture that relies on relatively high inputs of fossil fuels, not only to power machinery directly but also for manufacturing artificial fertilizers and agrichemicals ...
Modelling of energy consumption in wheat production using neural networks: case study in Canterbury province, New Zealand
(World Academy of Science, Engineering and Technology, 2010)
An artificial neural network (ANN) approach was used to model the energy consumption of wheat production. This study was conducted over 35,300 hectares of irrigated and dry land wheat fields in Canterbury in the 2007-2008 ...
The carbon footprint of energy consumption in pastoral and barn dairy farming systems: A case study from Canterbury, New Zealand
Dairy farming is constantly evolving to more intensive systems of management, which involve more consumption of energy inputs. The consumption of these energy inputs in dairy farming contributes to climate change both with ...
