Demands for heat, processing energy, irrigation, tractors, harvesters and other energy needs (all in Peta Joules) are met through various technologies and fuel sources. Technologies using liquid fossil fuels (tractors, harvesters and pumps using diesel or petrol) are able to use a bio-fossil fuel blend. Tractors and harvesters are also able to run on pure bio-ethanol or bio-diesel for a case in which a farmer may be producing his own biofuel for use in farm vehicles. Demand for energy increases in time with respect to the agricultural GDP. Fuels come from refineries or mines, in the case of coal, and dummy boxes along fuel paths allow for accounting for each specific sector.
