JAMES WOOTEN, Extension associate, agricultural and biological engineering, at Mississippi State University, says most alternative energy options aren’t economically feasible with present prices for conventional energy.

“At this point, with current energy prices, farmers’ best use of money is not in producing power, but in finding ways to better conserve the power they use,” he said at the annual conference of Mississippi Women in Agriculture.
