How Amazing Is Plant Factory Artificial Lighting Technology?

- Jul 22, 2019-

No sunlight, no soil, layers of hydroponic green leafy vegetables on the growth racks flourish, illuminated by rows of LED panels.

"At the heart of the plant factory are LED light panels, which mimic sunlight to provide the lighting conditions needed for plants to grow." The vegetables of three-dimensional cultivation completely depend on nutrient solution and LED lamp filling light technology to grow, because completely separated from the natural environment, mainly rely on manual control, vegetables can be produced for 365 days without interruption. In addition, the plant factory is highly clean, vegetables can be eaten without cleaning.

"Plant factory" is also regarded as a revolutionary breakthrough in the field of agriculture, and "plant factory" has attracted much attention as a cutting-edge technology in the field of agriculture. LED lighting needs sufficient power resources, and xinjiang has an advantage in this regard. Xinjiang has six months of winter, which is not a good time for plants to grow, but plant factories can solve the problem. Secondly, xinjiang is short of water resources, but plant factories only need 3 percent of the water for traditional cultivation.

Because it is a three-dimensional planting and not subject to climate restrictions, the vegetable yield of plant factory is equivalent to the yield of traditional agriculture of 60 mu of land.

Traditionally grown lettuces take about 60 days to grow from seed to sale, but only 40 to 45 days for plants. In the past, only three vegetables could be grown in a year.

In addition to vegetables, plant factories grow cordyceps and further process it. At present, the new products, such as frozen crystal powder of chrysalis and pure micro-ecological feed additive, have been sold to many cities along the southeast coast.

For every 100 kilograms of vegetables, 30 kilograms of roots are left. These roots and the discarded leaves are put into low-temperature fermentation equipment, which can be used to make natural enzymes. In addition to being edible, natural enzymes can also be used as feed additives, which can not only solve the problem of antibiotic use in aquaculture, but also create a sustainable eco-cycle economy.

From completion to expansion, from 10 kg per day in the past to 200 kg per day now, the plant plant is constantly expanding in size and variety.
