Using resource and energy-saving technologies in agricultural production as a direction of raising energy efficiency of rural territories

Abstract
The expediency of introducing resource and energy-saving technologies in rural territories, specializing in agricultural production, was substantiated in the article. A number of factors, which stipulate the choice of farming system, were given, taking into account economic, ecological, technological-energy, and social factors, which form the efficiency of farming. The peculiarities of different farming systems (intensive, organic, no-till, strip-till, precision, bio-enzyme, biogenic) were considered, which enabled to evaluate their energy and resource-efficiency in rural territories. The estimation of each farming system as to resource and energy-saving was conducted with the aim of their practical using, which will lead to the economy in spending resources and various kinds of energy, increase the productivity of farm machinery and used resources, decrease ecological loading on the environment, ensure energy efficiency of the rural territories and their long-term development.
