Hainan's agri companies hope to boost yields with solar panels

Agricultural companies on Hainan, the smallest and southernmost province of the People's Republic of China, are planning to increase the yields of a number of vegetable crops in the hottest time of year thanks to solar panels.

These technologies were tested in the Qiongshan district in the administrative center of the region, Haikou. They are supposed to help increase the production of plants actively used in cooking, such as mustard and Chinese cabbage.

The participants of this innovative project note that due to panels which put a shadow on large surfaces, reduce moisture loss during evaporation, and protect plants from direct sunlight, excess energy from the sun is partially converted into electricity.

Every year from April to October the air temperature is high on Hainan, besides, there are often heavy rains and typhoons. Such weather conditions have a negative effect on agriculture. Due to the high evaporation rate at this time of year, the volume of growing vegetables is noticeably reduced. Solar panels are expected to solve this problem.
