A policy specialist with the American Farm Bureau Federation says the organization wants USDA to outline solar development best practices for ag lands.

Arica Hamilton tells Brownfield, “One part of a AFBF policy is to try and push solar developments to brownfield or conservation sites, trying to keep it off of our most productive land that we use for agriculture.”

Hamilton says Farm Bureau wants USDA to incorporate feedback from solar listening sessions held earlier this year.
