The excessive consumption of toxins, pesticides, and fertilizers in agriculture causes vital sources of water, soil, and food to be polluted. This problem has caused, experts to be considered energy consumption in agriculture, as one of the major environmental-threatening challenges. Energy consumption in crop and garden products are directly related to agricultural tillage systems. the purpose of this study was to evaluate the role of conservation agriculture systems on sustainable agriculture which, the irrigated wheat was surveyed in Hamadan province. 370 farmers were selected randomly from agricultural cooperatives. data were collected using a questionnaire and analyzed with Excel and Spss software.
The findings showed that; the total input energy in the wheat production process, in the conservation tillage system, was (32GJ/h) and the output energy was (11GJ/h). the energy generated by diesel consumption with more than %42 as the main fossil fuel in the first place and fertilizer with %32 was in the second place. The results showed that; the low-tillage farming system is an important step towards optimal use of energy in agricultural production and achieving the sustainable agriculture and rural development is possible if, the principles of low conservation tillage-system are done correctly. In addition, the expansion of conservation agriculture systems, as well as using scenarios such as tax increase and monitoring systems, can reduce environmental impact and fulfill the sustainable agriculture goals.
