Sinkkonen, Marko (2002) Impact of production method and production area on energy balance of rye consumed in Helsinki. In: Magid, Jakob; Granstedt, Artur; Dýrmundsson, Ólafur; Kahiluoto, Helena and Ruissen, Theo (Eds.) Urban areas - rural areas and recycling - the organic way forward?, Danish Research Centre for Organic Farming, DARCOF Report, no. 3/2002, pp. 33-41.
The results of the study show that production of fertilizers is the biggest factor in the rye production chain. Therefore organic rye tillage is not as intensive in energy usage as conventional practices. The energy consumed for transportation does not play a big role in total energy consumption of rye consumed in Helsinki.
