One of the most important characteristics of agriculture is its capacity to transform energy and generate energy “surpluses” with various uses (human food, animal feed, fertilization, etc.). These energy surpluses are potentially larger in ecological agriculture as result of low fossil fuel inputs related. Cereals and legumes are crops with high energy balance and output, both key agrarian sustainability indicators. This work analyses the behaviour of ecological extensive crops in Andalusia (2005), in both monetary and energy terms. In addition, a comparative analysis is made of the energy results obtained in the present study and those contributed by other national and international studies. The monetary and energy balance of extensive crops is estimated at 2.47 and 3.65, respectively. When only the use of non-renewable energy is taken into consideration, the energy balance increases and reaches 6.49. In comparative terms, the results show a high degree of energy efficiency.
