The production and productivity are directly related use in unit operation of agricultural production. The variation in yield of crop occurs in Narsinghpur District of Madhya Pradesh due to in wide variation in energy inputs, agro-climatic conditions and resources used. Keeping this in view, the present study deals with energetics of sugarcane in the district of Narsinghpur, Madhya Pradesh, for getting higher energy input. In the selected area, all the physical inputs in the form of direct and indirect sources and output in the form yield of grain and by-product are converted into common units of energy (MJ) per unit area (ha). The trend of use of direct energy (human, mechanical, electrical etc. and indirect energy seed, fertilizer, chemical etc.  was studied for performing different field operations from tillage to transport operations). The most energy consuming operation was irrigation, it consumed about 79056.13 MJ/ha and it consumed 51% of total energy. Among physical input the fertilizer contributed maximum energy and its maximum energy value was 61200 MJ/ha where as some farmers were found using less than 23485.5 MJ/ha of the total energy input.
