The purpose of this study is to investigate the impact of petroleum products consumption on the growth of the agricultural sector in Iran during the period 1350-1392 (1971-2013 AD). Using Auto-Regressive Distributed Lag Method (ARDL) and Error Correction Model (ECM), Short-term and long-term relationships are estimated and through Granger Causality Test, the causality is calculated. The results suggest that in long-term, consumption of petroleum products and foreign direct investment in the agricultural sector contributed to the growth of the agricultural sector, so that the impact of consumption of petroleum products is greater than the impact of foreign direct investment. There is no bilateral relationship between the consumption of petroleum products and the growth of agricultural sector. Therefore, it is recommended that the Government helps the growth of agriculture, through providing petroleum products and facilitating access to this type of energy to agriculture.
Keywords: Using Auto-Regressive Distributed Lag Method (ARDL), Error Correction Model (ECM), energy consumption, economic growth
