    Recently, the agro-photovoltaic (agri-photovoltaic) system is expected to penetrate the market due to its advantages in some crops and significant potential installation areas. In principle, the agro-photovoltaic system shares solar energy with PV and agriculture, and its appropriate and controlled distribution is the key for the economy. Accurate and reproducible optimization design is essential. Any PV modules can be used for the agro-photovoltaic system. The best may be the transparent CPV that uses direct sunlight to concentrate onto solar cells and diffused sunlight to illuminate the farming light through a transparent backplane. The diffused sunlight for typical CPV modules is not used for electricity generation, and the transparent CPV is utilized as the secondary light source to crops. The diffused sunlight does not create shadow and improves the inhomogeneity of PPFD (Photosynthetic Photon Flux Density) from the stripe of shadows by PV modules, thus improving the yield. This paper predicts PPFD by the transparent CPV modules and the effectiveness of its use for the agro-photovoltaic system.

    Climate change and increasing food demand are global issues that require immediate attention. The agrivoltaic system, which involves installing solar panels above farmland, can simultaneously solve climate and food issues. However, current systems tend to reduce agricultural production and delay the harvest period due to shading by the solar panels. A delayed harvest period impacts the income of farmers who wish to sell produce at specific times. Incorporating a model that calculates the amount of electricity generated by solar irradiation, this study establishes a model to estimate the correct start date of cultivation for solar panel covered crops to ensure the correct harvest date and determines the expected income of farmers by calculating agricultural production and power generation. Using taro cultivation in Miyazaki Prefecture as a case study, the model estimated that the start date of cultivation should be brought forward by 23 days to ensure the ideal harvest period and agricultural production. This would prevent an opportunity loss of USD 16,000 per year for a farm area of 10,000 m2. Furthermore, an additional income of USD 142,000 per year can be expected by adjusting shading rates for the cultivation and non-cultivation periods.

    Climate change and increasing food production due to population growth are global challenges that need immediate attention. The introduction of renewable energy to mitigate climate change and the requirement of adequate land to increase food production are generally mutually exclusive. However, an agrivoltaic system generates renewable electricity and produces agricultural products from a common piece of land, thus increasing the land productivity. In addition, this system contributes to local production, thus reducing the CO2 emissions from logistics. Photovoltaic arrays in previous studies were designed by calculating the irradiance in W/m2, even in recent studies. A careful design of the farmland's illumination must be developed for effective agriculture. The simulations must be scaled based on photosynthetic photon flux density rather than irradiance commonly applied in photovoltaic technology simulations. This study focused on the photosynthetic photon flux density and employed an all-climate solar spectrum model to calculate the photosynthetic photon flux density accurately on farmland partially shaded by solar panels and supporting tubes. This study described an algorithm for estimating the photosynthetic photon flux density values under solar panels. The calculated data were validated using the photosynthetic photon flux density sensors. To calculate the photosynthetic photon flux density under the solar panels, it is essential to weigh the direct and diffused components shaded by the solar panels separately because they have different spectrums. A method to quantify the shading was explored here by solar panels and their supporting tubes for the direct and diffused component as the sun moves. The calculation formula was established by defining the sun's moves and the positions of solar panels and their supporting tubes in terms of elevation and azimuth angles from the observation point. It was found that the waveform based on the calculation formula for the photosynthetic photon flux density under the solar panels reproduced the same tendency as the measured photosynthetic photon flux density. To evaluate this trend numerically, the measured and calculated photosynthetic photon flux densities were compared using the standard residuals. Generally, the similarity of the two values is confirmed by a standard residual value between −3 and 3. The result of this study showed that the standard residual values were negative in more frequencies except for the zero photosynthetic photon flux density at night. This indicates that the calculated photosynthetic photon flux density tends to be higher than the measured photosynthetic photon flux density. The peak frequency of the standard residuals was between −6 and −3. This difference probably occurred because the established calculation formula targets the shading provided by the solar panels and supporting tubes but does not cover the shading provided by the other system structures. The calculation formula enables farmers to evaluate the economic efficiency of the system before introducing it using measured solar irradiation data at the target farmlands by introducing published neighborhood solar irradiation data and considering, in advance, measures to avoid the effects of shading on agricultural production. The next study will be to improve the accuracy of the calculation formula by increasing the number of days and develop a method that leads to the best practices of agricultural production and solar power generation by introducing the system.

    Firmness is an important quality factor in strawberries. We investigated the tissue-dependent seasonal variation in strawberry firmness in epidermis, cortex, and pith tissues, and also developed statistical predictive models for the seasonal changes in firmness using environmental conditions and fruit properties. The experiment was conducted at three locations (sites A, B, and C) and in different harvesting seasons from winter (December) to spring (May) during 2 years. The fruit properties, including the total soluble solids (TSS), acidity, and fruit surface color decreased toward the end of the season (from winter to spring), with fruit harvested in April and May having the lowest values at all research sites. Similarly, the epidermis firmness decreased 0.73-fold toward the end of the season at all the research sites. The cortex firmness of site A showed a marked decrease of 0.64-fold toward the end of the season, but that of sites B and C remained at constant levels. The pith firmness tended to be higher for fruit harvested in December than in other months. We tested the training dataset using the stepwise multiple linear regression analysis to construct the statistical predictive models of firmness. The goodness-of-fit of the firmness predictive models, shown by the adjusted square correlation coefficient, was 0.47–0.54 in the model using the input data for daily mean environmental conditions several days before harvest as well as fruit properties, including fruit weight, color, and TSS. Additionally, in the regression analysis between predicted and actual values, the predictive models demonstrated accurate high performance with a low predictive error (0.06 as relative root mean square error). Thus, we concluded that strawberry firmness shows seasonal variation within the epidermis and pith tissues, and that their predictive models were of adequate accuracy and usefulness without the need for time-consuming, costly measurement equipment.

    <p> In a sustainable society, it is necessary to develop systems that produce enough food and energy while also preserving the environment. Both agricultural production for food generation and photovoltaics for renewable energy production require large, open fields. In this research study, we investigate the feasibility of combining food and energy production into a single field by examining the effects of installing photovoltaic equipment above land used for farming. We grew komatsuna, kabu, mizuna, and spinach underneath photovoltaic equipment, and investigated the influence of shading from the photovoltaic equipment on plant growth and yields during winter cultivation. As expected, both the amount of solar radiation and the air and soil temperature were lower under the photovoltaics than those under the open field. The growth rate of komatsuna, kabu, and mizuna were slower. However, yields and qualities sufficient to meet market demands remained possible with extension of the cultivation periods. Therefore, although temperature and solar radiation are reduced under the photovoltaic equipment in winter, it is nevertheless possible to produce vegetables in the farmland, providing a novel opportunity to realize an integrated agricultural system with parallel production of food and energy.</p>
