Renewable energy production can help cereal farms in drought-hit areas

5/26/2012

Renewable energy production can help cereal farms in drought-hit areas improve moisture retention at the same time as increasing revenues, according to EnviTec Biogas UK. Earlier this year, Environment Secretary Caroline Spelman hosted a drought summit with water companies, farmers and wildlife groups and warned of potential supply disruptions. In spite of increased rainfall in April, large swathes of England are still officially in drought. In addition, several water stress studies predict that the South East will show ‘extreme stress’ by 2020 – the same classification as parts of the Middle East. EnviTec is urging cereal farmers to boost income and hedge against drought and price fluctuations by investing in green energy production.
