The purpose of this study was to analyze input and output energy in watermelon production. The study was conducted using face to face questioner for watermelon farmers in Bunga Mayang, North Lampung. Energy input was analyzed based on the farm activities (land preparation, planting, plant management, harvesting and transportation) as well as input types (human labors, machineries, fuel, fertilizers, chemicals, and other materials). The result showed that total input energy of 57,532 MJ/ha was required for watermelon production in which chemical fertilizer was the highest contributor (29,887 MJ/ha or 51.94 % of total inputs). With average yield of 25000 kg/ha, the output-input energy ratio was 0.54, whereas specific energy was 2.30 MJ/kg and energy productivity was 0.43 kg/MJ.
