The prime objective of the present research study is to analyze the district-wise structure of energy consumption in agriculture of Haryana during 2012-13. Data related to the study were collected from Statistical Abstract of Haryana, published by Department of Economic and Statistical Analysis (DESA), Government of Haryana. Energy consumption in k.cal./hect./annum has been computed with the help of total cropped area and Standard Energy Conversion Table prepared by TERI. Data analysis showed that the average energy consumption in the state was 27, 34,157.27 k.cal./hect./annum. About 90% of the total energy consumption comes from chemical energy followed by human energy (7%), electrical energy (1.7%) and mechanical energy (1.3%). Kurukshetra, Yamunanagar, Palwal, Karnal and Panipat districts of the state have consumed the high amount of energy whereas Bhiwani, Jhajjar, Mahendragarh and Panchkula district have consumed the low amount of energy. Ambala, Rohtak, Rewari, Jind and Fatehabad district have consumed the moderate quantity of energy in agriculture of the state.
