Abstract:

India has abundant solar energy potential, which makes it most suitable renewable energy source for different agricultural applications. Application of solar energy in farm lands for different agricultural operations could reduce the cost of operation without deteriorating the quality of environment. The present review shows that the application of solar photovoltaic system in stationary agricultural operations like irrigation and threshing; and use of battery technology in mobile agricultural machineries like vertical conveyer reaper and mower. Thus, in this paper, a comprehensive review has been made on the application and barriers of solar energy and battery technology in agricultural mechanization.
