Abstract: Although the agricultural mechanization program in China has been greatly accelerated in recent years, its level of overall development is still relatively low. It often relies on extensive consumption of resources, resulting in some serious problems, including high energy consumption and high costs. In this paper, the development of agricultural machinery industry in China is described. The energy consumption data of farm machinery is then analysed. The reasons for high energy consumption of agricultural machinery are also discussed. Future development strategies for reducing energy consumption of agricultural machinery in China are also suggested.
