Fuel Consumption Spreadsheet
Spreadsheet for comparing fuel consumption based on row spacings and equipment size. The program can be used to determine the approximate amount of fuel used during a growing season in a high density compared to a conventional orchard, based on spraying, mowing, and brush chopping task requirements. A simple-to-use calculator version of the tool is available at: http://www.extension.org/pages/72635/energy-efficiency-for-tree-fruit-production#.VYAkQ1Ji4mR.
