There's a LOT of cornfields now....I know that for a fact since I'm in the
business of taking Combines and Tractors to the people who grow corn. The
problem is economics. There is MORE capacity to grow corn than there is
demand FOR that corn at a price that justifies growing more corn. So
there's lots of difficulties. Farmers going broke etc.
It's political...as is everything.
Also there are more and more WindFarms going up. The two most prominent
areas are just east of the Bay Area and just east of BakersField in
Taxifornia. There are however many more locations being built. I've
noticed that the windfarms tend to be on land that's just about worthless
for anything else...except maybe sheep. Different land than cornfields....
