In recent years there has been a sudden increasing of energy cost which is affecting all production activities; this aspect is dramatically influencing the extensive production of durum wheat, the main field crop in Sicily (South Italy). Energetic parameters like as net energy yield and energy efficiency, may be used as indicators of the sustainability of production systems in these environments. The aim of this study is to evaluate the energy balance of durum wheat in relation to different agronomic inputs (fertilizer and soil tillage techniques).
