China: 80 hectares of tomatoes on plateau saline land

Snow dances in the cold weather, and the 200 solar greenhouses located in Huangfu Village, Liugu Town, Fuping County, Shaanxi Province, are as warm as spring.

Previously, these 80 hectares of plateau land had difficulty in planting crops due to the high fluorine content in water and soil compaction. The technicians of Shaanxi Yixuan Agricultural Technology Co., Ltd. have cultivated these high-quality tomatoes by introducing new varieties, improving soil environment, using intelligent control and data management, with an annual output of more than 5 million kgs, which is in short supply in major cities.

These tomatoes are different from ordinary tomatoes. Through the strict control of artificial intelligence, it takes more than 4 months to grow from the fruits of the first truss setting to ripening.

Shaanxi Yixuan Agricultural Technology Co., Ltd. strictly controls the growth environment of tomatoes. In order to achieve this, the energy-saving solar greenhouses equipped with remote monitoring by smartphone provide a strong guarantee. Nevertheless, the technician from the company, Liu Tianshun, still commutes among the different greenhouses every day and conducts manual checks according to the "six elements", namely the ground temperature, air temperature, CO2 concentration, light intensity, soil temperature, and humidity.

Since the establishment of Shaanxi Yixuan Agricultural Technology Co., Ltd. in 2015, it has formed an inextricable bond with this long-established rich land in Shaanxi. At present, a one-hectare greenhouse is expected to produce 150,000 kilograms of tomatoes at a price of about 28 RMB [4 USD] per kg. After packing into gift boxes, they can be directly sold in Shanghai, Beijing, Shenzhen and other big cities through e-commerce platforms.

JD Farm implements control and data management on the whole process of crop cultivation management and collection to ensure the disclosure of information on the entire chain of high-quality crop production. Cooperating with JD Mall and JD offline supermarkets to comprehensively promote sales, helps achieve the high quality and fast direct access of these tomatoes from the field to the dining table.
