The total project covers an area of 5,440 square meters, of which the greenhouse area is 4,992 square meters, with 448 square meters of exhibition area. It is mainly for the research of tomato, strawberry, cherry, and other horticultural crops.
The greenhouse features a Hoogendoorn climate control system, and it can collect and analyze information based on weather, air, and ground. It uses several high-tech systems, such as geographic information systems, an Internet of things sensing system, and cloud computing system to achieve intelligent control of the greenhouse environment in order to create the optimal environment for plant growth.
The variety of cherry tomatoes grown in this greenhouse is a new variety independently selected by the Yantai Academy of Agricultural Sciences - Jinyang Mizhu. The greenhouse also makes use of biological crop protection. Pollination of tomatoes is done by bumblebees.
