Solar energy and farming is a deadly combination. Wind, solar and biomass energy can be harvested forever, providing farmers with a long-term source of income. Renewable energy can be used on the farm to replace other fuels or even sold as a cash crop. It is one of the most promising and important opportunities for value-added products in agriculture.Solar energy can be used in agriculture in a number of ways, saving money, increasing self-reliance, and reducing pollution. Solar energy can cut a farm’s electricity and heating bills. Solar heat collectors can be used to dry crops and warm homes, livestock buildings, and greenhouses. Solar water heaters can provide hot water for diary operations, pen cleaning, and homes. Photovoltaics (solar electric panels) can power farm operations and remote water pumps, light, and electric fences.
