However, the energy demand of an agricultural area cannot be covered solely by the use of circuit economy—that is, by energetic use of agricultural wastes and residues or through solar and wind energy. In some climatically unfavorable regions we need, in addition to available resources, the production of energy raw materials (biomass) on the farm. However, this may lead to a contentious ...
