The combination of renewable energy and farming is a winning combo. Energy production is to nation’s economy like the way engine powers the vehicle. Renewable energy is promising source for energy production with sustainability. Solar energy is free of cost when utilized in any application and present in infinite amount. Agriculture sector struggles to meet the demand of food production with the present resources so switching to solar technology has a lot of advantages in terms of economy, environment and energy production. From last 20 years, solar energy has brought many changes especially in agriculture where it needed the most. The paper focus on the research work and current development of solar energy applications in agriculture field like PV panels in farm field, solar water pumping system, solar greenhouses, irrigation systems including manual and automatic, solar water heating and solar dryer with their working, setup and cost parameters. It is an approach to motivate people to use renewable energy source for energy production in automobile, space crafts, agriculture field, homes, etc. for sustainable development.
