Abstract

In this study, it is examined that the specific measures for energy saving in soil tillage applications. The fuel consumption can be reduced by 39% for stubble processing, basic and secondary processing and also sowing, if the method is changed from conventional cultivation with a plough to mulching including soil loosening. By combining single working operations the number of operations can be reduced. The requirement for energy and therefore also the fuel consumption are fluctuating by about 30% depending on the working intensity. An increasing driving speed for reaching a higher power output is definitely responsible for higher fuel consumption.
