Abstract: This article discusses various corn tillage technologies and analyses their energy consumption and GHG emissions. The experimental research and analytical calculations took place in Lithuania and were carried out using five different tillage technologies of varying intensities: deep ploughing, shallow ploughing, deep cultivation, shallow cultivation, and the no-tillage system (NT). The research has determined that lower intensity tillage technologies expend 12-58% less energy than deep ploughing. NT technology causes the least pollution: the agricultural machines involved only emit only an average of 107 kg ha-1 of CO2. The most efficient technologies in terms of energy efficiency are the NT and the conventional deep ploughing
