The US organization, SARE (Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education), has recently released an excellent new 20-page bulletin: Clean Energy Farming: Cutting Costs, Improving Efficiencies, Harnessing Renewables. The bulletin is available for free download from SARE’s website. It features innovative SARE-funded research and examples of farmers who are improving energy efficiency while saving money, by implementing farming practices that both save energy and protect natural resources, and by producing and using renewable fuels.
While the examples used are from the US, Canadian farmers can also benefit from SARE’s research and recommendations.
