  • Use energy and fuel efficient equipments.

  • If using underground fuel storage tanks ensure there is no fuel leakage.
  • When using farm vehicles or machinery plan your activities ahead to minimise multiple trips.

  • If possible use zero tillage than ploughing.

  • If ploughing ensure soil conditions are favourable (e.g. optimal soil moisture).
