First of all, a rural area that uses wind power is much more likely to have clean soil and water, yealding a healthy crop. Also, farmers who allow companies to install wind turbines on their land get paid royalies that range from $2,000 to $5,000 annually per turbine. This is extremely beneficial, since the turbines themselves take up very little room and crops can be planted right up to the base of them. Farmers can become producers themselves of wind energy, and also power the farm off the energy they harvest. The turbines can also cool, warm, or keep crops dry, fending off fungi and other parasites.
However, wind farms can present a danger to those who fly crop dusting planes, as it makes navigation more complicated and hazardous. http://www.windforillinois.org/news/2009/4/13/wind-developers-working-to-increase-crop-duster-safety.html
