Chinese research institutes cooperate in greenhouse project

In the 2.5-hectare glass greenhouse of Jintang Agriculture in Langxia Town, Shanghai, a greenhouse is constructed. Jintang Agriculture and the Shanghai Academy of Agricultural Sciences have cooperated in two agricultural science and technology projects, and also received the support of the local government.

Mini cucumbers are currently being harvested in the greenhouse, and eggplants and tomatoes will also be harvested in January of the following year. At this moment, strawberry seedlings are sprouting in this spring-like glass greenhouse, waiting to be protected by high technology to grow up.

From soilless cultivation of small tomatoes to an annual tomato planting base with an annual output of 400 tons, to the world's first indoor soilless cultivation of hops, this agricultural company that has been established for three years cannot be underestimated. As one of Shanghai's first pilot projects for the comprehensive national agricultural development of modern agricultural parks, Jintang has its own capabilities.

In the glass greenhouse where ecology and technology are integrated, the precise environmental control, intelligent water and fertilizer circulation, and other systems in the greenhouse are each responsible for monitoring the "mission", monitoring various changes in the greenhouse, so that the crops have the most ideal growth environment.

Here, agriculture is no longer the farmland in people's impression, but a dazzling array of fresh vegetable and fruit gardens, a modern agriculture "grown" from the concrete ground. Jintang makes fieldwork shift from “relying on the weather” to data-based precision management, where scientific and technological agriculture “takes roots” here, injecting strong momentum into the rural revitalization.
