- There is intensive energy use in crop production in agriculture. Efficient energy usage is a key factor for sustainable production in agricultural production. Optimization of the inputs used according to the efficiency of the production of the product is generally performed by the researchers through energy analysis. The optimization of srawberry production is evaluated by thermodynamic approach in this study. The study identified energy and exergy utilization, CO2 emissions, loss of exergy, and cumulative of degree perfection values of one tonne strawberry production in the open field and in the greenhouse. Energy utilization required for the strawberries production in the open field is higher than the greenhouse. The cumulative degree of perfection values of one tonne strawberry production in open field and greenhouse found 0.29 and 0.18, respectively. Along with that, the exergy loss values of one tonne strawberry production in open field and greenhouse found 6163 MJ and 11598 MJ, respectively.
