Özet

The main method for providing water for irrigation purposes is the transmission of water between the water source and the field for irrigation. This movement of water requires an energy. Therefore, the effects of irrigation applications at different heights on energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions (GHGs) in Kuzova region in Elazig province of Turkey were evaluated in this study. While energy consumption for sugar beet irrigation is 3.46 GI /ha at a height of 30 m, it reaches 10.26 GJ/ha for irrigation of more than 150 m. However, while fuel consumption for corn irrigation is 3.71 L GJ/ha at a height of 30 m, it reaches 12.73 GJ/ha for irrigation of more than 150 m. While the GHG emissions from sugar beet irrigation is 256.27 kgCO(2)-eq/ha at a height of 30 m, it reaches 759.66 kgCO(2)-eq/ha for irrigation of more than 150 m. However, while the GHG emissions from corn irrigation is 274.58 kgCO(2)-eq/ha at a height of 30 m, it reaches 942.71 kgCO(2)-eq/ha for irrigation of more than 150 m.
