Obviously there's a million and one interesting combinations for solar and farming, so please feel free to post and discuss any here. The thing that's been stuck in my head all day was this idea of solar only being installed or not installed on a farm. Why? Do we label a field "corn" and lock ourselves into only growing corn there forever? With solar hardware so cheap, what's stopping us from deploying solar arrays on a mobile platform like we have for linear irrigation? There was a show on PBS highlighting farm to table(perhaps called that), where they toured farms then cooked with their products. One farm was fully organic cage-free operation and had these cool mobile chicken coops that they'd rotate around the fields to help fertilize the soil. A month of chickens, maybe a month of sheep grazing, then something else. Could solar not be part of that mix? We already have farms set up for linear irrigation.... ....just use a "solar planting rig" to deploy a semi-mobile solar array in a similar fashion. Entire rows of 100 panels could be set down into pre-set bracketing or just spiked. Then you rotate in some useful fashion. Anything like this possible or even remotely useful? Obviously modern US farming is super-optimized, but if properly incentivized would something like this be logical rather than just having a field be farming OR solar? After all, some season's have higher demand than others for certain farmed goods. It'd be nice to call up a company that could deploy an array for one season then yank it back up. Or maybe you grow only on the shoulder seasons? As a tie-in to Tesla.....how do you think Elon plans to deploy solar on Mars? Certainly not by hand. He probably already has a "solar planting rig" ready to roll!
