Agriculture and Aquaculture Applications of Geothermal Energy

Agriculture and aquaculture applications are particualarly attractive for geothermal applications because they require heating at the lower end of the temperature range where there is an abundance of geothermal resources. Use of waste heat or the cascading of geothermal energy from power plants or other high-temperature uses also have excellent possibilities. A number of agribusiness applications can be considered such as greenhouses, aquaculture, animal husbandry, soil warming and irrigation, mushroom raising, and biogas generation.
