We are honored to announce the results of a survey that was undertaken to assess the impact of the Gaza War on Israeli farmers.
The digital survey was administered from October 26-November 5, 2023 by MIGAL’s Dr. Abramson and Haya Rak Yahalom, Manager of Israel’s Northern Research Institute (MOP Tzafon). The survey was distributed via social networks and Israeli government agricultural channels (SHAHAM), and 389 farmers from all regions of the country responded.
Agrivoltaics refers to the combination of agricultural infrastructure with photovoltaic installations and offers a lot of potential advantages to improve agricultural yields while simultaneously generating clean electricity, but also poses a lot of challenges since both energy yield and agricultural yield need to be co-optimized. There is therefore a large need for research collaboration between both the agricultural industry and the PV industry.

During the past two years, momentum has built rapidly for agri-photovoltaic (APV), the technology that allows agricultural land to be used simultaneously for growing crops and generating solar power. The concept is simple: semi or non-transparent solar arrays, with or without tracers, are installed on platforms above the crops, high enough that farmers can carry out their ongoing agricultural activities. Recent studies assert that installation of APV on 1% of the world’s arable land could fill world needs for electricity.
