For sustainable agriculture practice, the efficient use of energy is necessary as it allows financial benefits to farmers. A study on assessment of energy used for rice cultivation was conducted at Department of Agricultural Engineering and Technology, SETAM, Nagaland University. The main objectiveof the study was to determine the total energy utilised, total productivity and energy productivity for rice cultivation in the four agricultural blocks in Dimapur district. It was found that the total energy utilized in Medziphema, Kuhuboto, Dhansiripar and Nuiland of Dimapur district were 1978.483 MJ/ha, 2589.782MJ/ha, 2042.195 MJ/ha and 2217.44 MJ/ha respectively. The direct input energy utilized were 1738.99 MJ/ha, 2208.886 MJ/ha, 1650.587 MJ/ha and 1894.77 MJ/ha and the energy from indirect sources were 239.823 MJ/ha, 380.8957 MJ/ha, 391.608 MJ/ha and 322.661 MJ/ha respectively in the four blocks. It was also obtained that the total productivityin four agricultural blocks of Dimapur district were 2521.135 kg/ha, 2448.50 kg/ha, 1500.81 kg/ha and 1645.696 kg/ha respectivelywith more efficient energy productivity of 1.27 kg/MJ in Medziphema block.

Key words: Direct energy, Indirect energy, Energy productivity, Sustainable agriculture.
