Abstract:
For sustainable development, exhaustible and renewable resources must the exploited under strict planning and management that provides for the present and guarantees future availability. This paper highlights the forms of energy consumable in agricultural mechanization as well as the ways through which the resources have been well managed and conserved in developed nations to sustain continuous agricultural developments that transformed their rural communities. This is against the backdrop of Nigeria's saddening experience. The paper attempts to critically appraise energy utilization and conservation in agricultural mechanization in Nigeria and the attendant negative impact its poor management has had on the development of the agricultural sector and subsequently on rural development. The work is an outcome of original scholarly inquiry based on personal observations and experiences and literature review using certified published books and other forms of literature as resources. The paper ends with some suggestions aimed at improving the Nigerian situation to grow the agricultural and rural development sectors.
