Electric Tractors and Equipment: The Age Of Adaptive Agriculture

It's no secret that food production is energy intensive. With finite resources and a changing climate, farmers must become adaptive to their environment, not the other way around. Adaptive Agriculture requires us to farm within our specific context. One context we all share is the reality of global warming and dwindling fossil fuels. Steve Heckeroth of Solectrac has been developing a solution: a fully electric tractor, chargeable by renewable energy. How can agriculture adapt to electric technology? Learn about new tools and implements, and how they will help us adapt to our new reality.
