Low Energy Technology. A Unit of Instruction in Agricultural Economics. Planning for Energy Savings.
Utley, Michael; Scanlon, Dennis C.
This unit of instruction on farm management for energy savings was designed for use by agribusiness and natural resources teachers in Florida high schools and by agricultural extension agents as they work with adults and students. It is one of a series of 11 instructional units (see note) written to help teachers and agents to educate their students and clients about the problems of energy shortages and strategies for energy conservation and management. Suggested as supplemental curriculum material for a course on farm management, this unit is organized into four modules. Topics covered in the unit include the budgeting process; sample budgets, cultural practices for energy savings, integrating pest management; irrigation systems; and costs of equipment and fuel consumption. The unit contains student performance objectives, content information, teaching-learning activities, student handouts, transparency masters, and evaluation instruments. (KC)
