As the topic suggests, i specifically want to discuss Farm Power!
What is Farm Power? Farming is the practice of cultivating crops or livestock on a farm. - wiki. Thus it means it’s man made. Nature grows it’s own food & it don’t need man for it.
Power = Mass * Energy * Space * Time - wiki again. There is abundant Power in Nature, thus Nature dont need man for Power either. It’s actually the other way around. Google George Carlin on environment.
Nature has it’s own mechanism for harnessing it’s requirements. It is man who needs to collaborate with nature to survive sustainably. There is a lot of talk out there on bio-mimmicry, immitating nature in every sphere of human life. In agriculture, it’s in the manner of Natural or Organic farming. But that’s just half the element of Farm Power. The farm is covered but not the power. And there are just numerous sources of energy on a farm, namely Solar, Wind, Geo Thermal, Bio Mass, Gravitational, Kinetic, Magnetic and Static in the air. The plant draws it’s power or energy from some of them as well. There is a lot going on in the world in terms of means and ways to harness these and more forms for the use of Humans. Yet it’s a sad state that hardly a fraction of it is used in the field of Agriculture. Breaks my Heart.
Doing a cross section of Costs in farming, power, or energy as i would call it, or fuel as someone else would call it, holds a major component. More so as it’s a recurring expense. The two main sub sections would be, electricity for lighting & appliances and vehicle fuel for crops & transport. i am aware of solutions that are there but i want to see more. Unfortunately my science is worst than a firth grader. None the less, i would urge the knowledgeables to explore this avenue as it has vast opportunities.
Renewables is Tomorrow’s fuel, let’s find a way to use it Today!
More Later, Cheers, naf
