Abstract

India is the world's ninth-largest grape-producing country. Maharashtra is a major producer of grapes and raisins, with the Sangli district accounting for a large portion of the total, hence becoming the area of focus of this research. Sangli becomes an important location for grape production. The objective of this research is to conduct a thorough, organized, and comprehensive energy analysis of the grape-growing process, emphasizing the energy consumed in important farming operations. Energy analysis is a tool used to quantify the various energies involved in the production of grapes. The share and percentage distribution of various sources of energy are determined using energy analysis. The input data needed for energy analysis is gathered from the region's major farms. Diesel (29%), electricity (22%), human labor (15%), chemical fertilizer (12%), pesticide (8%), farm yard manure (7%), machinery (6%), and irrigation (1%) are listed in decreasing order of energy usage. The energy ratio and productivity ratios are calculated as a result of the energy analysis; the corresponding values are 5.92 and 0.56 kg/MJ, respectively.
