Solar panels and farming do work at the same time, according to The Agricultural Good Practice Guidance for Solar Farms.

The report by the BRE National Solar Centre says solar farms are “developing and encouraging multi-purpose fields”, with land between and underneath rows of PV panels accessible for grazing small livestock, such as sheep and poultry.

The report, compiled in conjunction with the NFU, examines for the first time good practice in farm solar panels.
