The use of energy in agricultural have increased, making it necessary to make current agricultural practices more energy efficient. To do this, the prevailing system must be thoroughly analysed. Studies have focused on assessing the energy performance of individual crop, but notably few studies have investigated in wheat crop. Wheat covers approximately 35% of the total global area devoted to by cereal crops. Wheat production needs to be augmented to meet the growing demand. The basic purpose of the present study is to analyse and optimize energy use patterns of wheat production in district Prayagraj of Uttar Pradesh to maximize yield. This study was conducted in the one important district in the Prayagraj (Uttar Pradesh) during 2020. Total of 200 farmers were selected randomly from all the 10 villages. This study aims to assess the energy input output, energy use efficiency for wheat production. The effect to different land size on Energy Use Efficiency was also assessed and analysed statistically. In the Wheat production EUE was found maximum in the larger land category with the average value of 6.19 and it showed a reducing trend as the land size decreased. The Energy Use Efficiency decreased to an average value of 5.67 for small land holding and again further reduced to 5.60 in the marginal land holdings. The overall Energy Use Efficiency of wheat crop 5.79.
