Like Texas and California who are currently leading the nation in wind farms and are the top citrus producing states other than FL?

DC has a pretty good point on that -- the Big Wind Area of Texas -- West and Panhandle -- are pretty much Wheat only (some hay, and other crops) and require irrigation just to do that well.

The Citrus Area of Texas aka "the Valley" near the Rio Grande -- whole other area and weather pattern.

Both California and Texas are pretty big and span entire climate and weather regions.

I see the mix of some wind and orchards in the Central to East parts of Texas. But it is not the best for either. Where I am talking about a mixed use may be peach and grape areas.

Other semi-tender crops besides citrus would benefit from a microclimate where overnight temp was mildly warmer and could hold off the late and early season killing frosts.

The places in Texas that produce the citrus aren't the same as the places that produce the wind. I'm not sure about the citrus producing areas of California.
