This study was aimed to determine the energy use and equivalent carbon dioxide emissions (CO2-equivalent) in per unit production area (ha) considering the petroleum products (PU) directly used for the production of table tomatoes in open field conditions in Adana province. Energy consumption values related to diesel fuel and engine oil (PU) usage were calculated based on the quantities used for the unit area (ha) of PUs and lower energy values (MJ/L), which are an important indicator of the energy content of these products (PU). As the carbon dioxide emission (kg CO2) related tothe use of PU, kg CO2 values are taken into consideration depending on the energy content (MJ) of the PU. A total of 249.6 L/ha diesel fuel is consumed when using tools and machinery in tomato production. As a result of diesel fuel consumption, a total of 685.34 kg CO2/ha CO2 emission occurs in tomato production. As a result of engine oil consumption in open field tomato production, using tools and machinery, a total of 0.1153 kg CO2/ha CO2 emission occurs.
