In 2010, the Nova Scotia agricultural sector (including fisheries)
consumed 4,341,625 GJ and
emitted 1,080,490 GHG tonnes.
Most of the energy (93.26%) consumed by this sector is required to operate trucks, marine vessels and equipment. Diesel and gasoline, which are manufactured from crude oil, are therefore the predominate fuel sources. Electricity (5.02%) and natural gas liduids (1.72%) made up the balance in 2010.
