Our collaboration with Invenio and Amarenco aims to demonstrate the benefits of replacing plastic tunnels with a dynamic agrivoltaic solution for strawberry cultivation.
Our agrivoltaic pilot installation insolagrin@Conthey in collaboration with Romande Energie & Agroscope enters its second agronomic cycle!! This year we are testing the insolagrin solution over both raspberries (long cane ‘Vajolet’) and strawberries (ever bearing ‘Karima’).
The project is supported by the Swiss Federal Office of Energy SFOE.
Positive preliminary results from our pilot collaboration with ZHAW Institut für Umwelt und Natürliche Ressourcen IUNR growing corn salad under Insolight panels. After the first round of cultivation performed in winter 2021-2022, the experiment shows a beneficial effect of the panels on the growth of the corn salad. At harvest the fresh weight of the corn salad under the panels was on average 15 % higher than in the control zone.
We look forward to further collaboration with ZHAW!
