Farm groups in several states are trying to figure out how to address the expansion of solar panels on productive farmland.
Minnesota Corn Growers president Richard Syverson says it’s a difficult issue that came up during the Association’s resolutions meeting.
“We have people who want to participate in that, there’s a lot of dollars being pushed that way right now. We need to take a position (and) need to work on that, so we wrestle with that one as a group.”
He tells Brownfield Minnesota Corn wants to be very careful to get the solar policy right.
