This Special Issue examines recent advances in the analysis of energy efficiency in agriculture. The call for papers includes analyses in all research areas of agriculture, including animal husbandry and crop production in arable and permanent cropping systems (e.g., grassland, orchards, and vineyards) with respect to energy use in agriculture and energy efficiency. The submitted papers should follow a systems approach and analyze the energy efficiency for the whole production system. Partial analyses are also welcome. We welcome contributions of both reviews and original research.
