Asia's largest single-glass greenhouse just for growing the best tomatoes

Kaisheng Haofeng Agriculture is located in Shandong Province. It is the only agricultural sector under China National Building Materials Group and is also a national key leading enterprise in agricultural industrialization.

Digitization and intelligence are the biggest characteristics of Kaisheng Haofeng. The greenhouses here are all smart greenhouses produced under the guidance of Alibaba Cloud's digital agricultural brain. The temperature, humidity, and fertilizers are all controlled by big data, and new agricultural planting methods such as soilless cultivation and integration of water and fertilizer are adopted.

The staff said, “Compared with traditional greenhouses, smart greenhouses can save 60% to 80% of water, 40% of carbon dioxide emissions, and 25% of energy use.” In addition, in the greenhouses of Kaisheng, most of the work is done by robots, which greatly improves work efficiency and reduces labor costs.

Glass greenhouse

The Kaisheng Haofeng Smart Greenhouse in Dezhou, Shandong is the largest single glass greenhouse in Asia, with a total of 25 hectares, equivalent to the size of 600 standard basketball courts. The glass greenhouse is made of ultra-white rolled scattering glass. This kind of glass has a very high light transmittance in order to increase the transmitted light. In this largest single-glass greenhouse in Asia, only one crop is grown, and that is tomato.

From the moment the tomato seeds germinate, the plant protection technical engineer in each greenhouse has established a file like a household registration book for each tomato, and then each tomato growth data, including leaf length, number of leaves, and new stems will be recorded.

There are also privately-made tomatoes. With the support of Alibaba Cloud's digital agriculture brain and other technologies of the Internet of Things, the staff can adjust the ratio of water and fertilizer and other resources in real-time, adjust the sweetness and sourness of tomatoes according to customer needs, and realize personal customization of tomato taste.
