Special Issue in Agriculture: Productivity, Efficiency, and Sustainability in Agriculture
Energy from fossil fuel and renewable sources is a vital resource for development. Energy use in agriculture has become a prominent concern because of the rapid depletion of non-renewable sources of energy, rapid population growth, and environmental degradation, especially in developing economies. The concern is particularly high for countries reliant on modern agricultural technologies to promote growth, which in turn is largely dependent on energy use; countries with a high rate of population growth are increasingly using non-renewable and renewable energy to meet the growing demand for food and fibre.
This Special Issue is aimed at soliciting original contributions from academics, researchers, practitioners, NGOs, and other stakeholders providing theoretical insights and/or empirical analysis focusing on the interrelationship between energy and agriculture, which can provide valuable lessons for the future. The editor encourages submissions applying cross-disciplinary approaches and the use of a variety of quantitative, qualitative, and mixed methodologies. The scope of submission includes original research and review articles that address the issues raised above.
