In the plant factory, planting vegetables is like an industrialized production line -- just enter the code in the computer and press the Enter key, plants can be easily fertilized or irrigated.
Recently, the reporter visited the plant factory of Ningbo Yangming Industrial Technology Research Institute. The factory covers an area of 3,200 square meters. The yield of the vegetables in the factory is approximately 7 to 8 times that of ordinary land planting area. In addition, the selling price of these vegetables is 2 times higher, and the quality can reach organic standards.
According to the relevant person in charge, the plant factory, as a new form of agriculture, integrates various subjects such as modern biotechnology, environmental control, material science, facility horticulture and computer science.
Through real-time monitoring, indoor temperature, light, carbon dioxide concentration, nutrient solution, etc., the factory can maintain the best state for crop growth, and thus the vegetables grown are excellent in nutrition and quality without any pesticides or hormones.
