At 9 a.m. on a sunny morning. Huang Zhen, from Xizhang Village, Jiaomiao Town in China's Eastern Shandong province, has come to his solar greenhouse, to turn on his mobile phone, tap the screens and slowly open the vents on the roof to let in the sunlight through the film. Around are bright red tomatoes hanging all over the branches, growing gratifyingly.
"The greenhouse is equipped with an intelligent temperature control system. You can see the situation in the greenhouse by turning on the mobile phone, and it can also be controlled remotely, saving worry, effort, and money!" While speaking, Huang opened the APP on his mobile phone, and it clearly displayed the air temperature, humidity, light intensity, and other indicators in the greenhouse.
"It used to rely on manpower, but now it relies on technology," Huang said, "The greenhouse is also equipped with an automatic sprinkler system, drip irrigation, water and fertilizer integration, and watering and fertilization are all intelligent operations. Last year, the 0.4 ha of snack tomatoes I planted in the greenhouse made a net profit of more than 100,000 yuan (14,100 USD) per season. Smart agriculture has brought us real benefits. "
Located in Jiaomiao Town, Qihe County, the Qiyuan Group Lvji Lusheng Smart Agriculture Industrial Park mainly focuses on the development scale of the entire industrial chain of modern agriculture, and insists on breeding research and development, soil improvement, park construction and operation, and branded agricultural product sales.
"The IoT control center under construction in our park integrates various sensors such as temperature, humidity, light intensity, and video monitoring. Through big data analysis, the greenhouse environment can be automatically adjusted according to vegetable varieties, truly realizing 'cloud' planting and management." Jiang Huiqiang, Operation Director of Qiyuan Group Lvji Lusheng Smart Agriculture Industrial Park introduced.
At present, the first phase of the project is to build 99 smart greenhouses, implement the "leading enterprise + cooperative + farmer" mechanism, and focus on building seedling cultivation areas, production areas, leafy vegetable areas, and standardized vegetable production projects. Through digital control, mechanized operations, standardized production, and branded operations, all are sold to Beijing, Nanjing, and Jinan in the form of contract agriculture. Also, radiate and drive over 6000 ha of greenhouse planting, drive 800 employment, and transform the greenhouse into a "green workshop" and the park into a "green factory".
