China: 'National vegetable baskets project' against flood and rainfall

The continuous heavy rainfall in the Yangtze River in South China has caused severe local agricultural disasters in southern China. According to data from the Department of Market and Information Technology of the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs of China, due to the heavy rains in the south and strong convective weather in the main summer vegetable production areas in the north, vegetable prices rose after three consecutive months of decline.

A total of 330 million CNY has been allocated for disaster relief in agricultural production to support the restoration of production in southern provinces after the disaster, repair agricultural facilities damaged by the flood, and develop high-quality facility agriculture.

One of the National Key Investment Projects designed and constructed by KINGPENG Group: Nanjing Agricultural Innovation Incubation and Exhibition Base, is a multi-span intelligent film greenhouse equipped with both inside and outside shading system, roof ventilation, cooling pad and climate control system. This is an important project to be used as a R&D base for vegetables, fruits and other crops.

Mr. Frank Zhang, the onsite engineer said: "Because of the flood influence, the working conditions onsite are very hard, with water all over the floor and the daytime temperature reaching 38 degrees. The construction is affected a lot." This is a common problem in the greenhouse projects in South and East China.

Kingpeng, as leading greenhouse one-stop-shop in China, with its long history and experience in more than 60 countries, has made reasonable adjustments to the construction plan. "Our workers are stepping up to catch up with the construction period, to add rain shelter and ventilation to help dry the land, etc. And we strive to deliver the Agriculture Park according to the original plan. The main frame structure is almost done."

The Chinese government has shown its positive attitude and promoted the stable production of local vegetables, called the 'National Vegetable Baskets Project', it is sure that the facility agriculture industry will be spring up like bamboo after rain. And the industry participants like Kingpeng will also be engaged and committed in this project to develop and improve the overall level of the industry and service.
