what kind of agriculture takes the least amount of energy for the most amount of yield?

    I would say a local organic permaculture garden. This is a type of agriculture that mimics natural relationships found in nature. Having a diverse garden makes it more difficult for pests and weeds to infiltrate compared to a conventional monocrop. Also, instead of fertilizer, there are viable greener substitutions such as manure, compost, or even specific plants. If the soil is lacking nitrogen, instead of fertilizer, natural nitrogen fixing plants can be planted. Instead of pesticides, natural predatory insects can rid the garden of pests. Also, if this garden exists in your backyard, then there are no energy expenditures from packaging and transporting the food.
