In this work, a patented “agrivoltaic” solar tracking system named Agrovoltaico is examined in combination with a maize crop in a Northern Italian climatic simulation study. In the reported study, various panel distributions and management options were used to compare radiation differences as well as the agrivoltaic system’s effect on soil temperature, water and pH balance, evapotranspiration, yield and crop resilience.
