Abstract

Capital and energy effectiveness in organic production is similar to the one achieved in a traditional system, although it generally has a lower consumption of production and energy means. This consumption depends, however, on the applied technology, size, direction and manner of management. Since, implementation of new technologies and techniques in plant and animal production causes that farms obtain better and better indices of capital and energy effectiveness of their production. In the paper, the production size and consumption of energy carriers and raw materials for production purposes in organic farms was estimated. Effects of the obtained global and commodity production and expenditures incurred thereon presented in energy units enabled determination of capital and energy effectiveness of organic production and its energy consumption. A comparative analysis of the calculated indices was carried out, assuming a division criterion in the form of the surface area of agricultural land.
