Do you know about container agriculture? I believe everyone knows about containers, but there is not much knowledge about container agriculture. Container agriculture is a high-tech agriculture that has emerged with the development of new agriculture. It is like a plant factory that can plant crops all year round, breaking the limitations of seasons and weather on planting and turning plant planting into a factory oriented model.We all know that factory production is a highly efficient and automated production method, and factory production of plants will bring new opportunities to our planting industry.
Compared with traditional agriculture, container based vegetable cultivation has many advantages: it does not rely on natural light and water and soil resources, and can be planted and harvested throughout the year; Isolated from the outside world, the crops inside the container are free from pests and diseases, and there is no need to use pesticides; Having a water circulation system greatly reduces the waste of water resources.
Zip Container System:Vertical farms that can effectively utilize space.
The ZIP container system is the most typical planting system in container farms. This is a vertically oriented farm that effectively solves the problem of overcrowded planting space. The zip container system has the highest number of crops planted among all container systems, with a single container system capable of planting up to 6000 crops.
This planting system is very suitable for commercial production. The advantage of the zip system itself is its small footprint and high space utilization rate. Vertical planting in containers is efficiently utilized, and the planting racks in the container can be stacked in multiple layers, minimizing land occupation. For areas with limited land resources, vertical farming has a strong attraction.
Zip Container System:Very cost-effective and efficient.
Zip Container Systems are very suitable for growing leafy vegetables such as cabbage and lettuce. In addition, this planting system can also be used to plant herbaceous plants.In the container system, the complete process from breeding to harvesting can be carried out, and the entire traditional planting process can be achieved in one container.Having a container system is equivalent to having a cost-effective vertical farm.
The vegetables in the zip container farm do not need to be grown using hydroponic or air culture. The growth speed of vegetables is twice that of traditional farms, greatly shortening the growth cycle. Moreover, this planting method does not require the use of pesticides, making the harvested vegetables green and pollution-free, which is very in line with the pursuit of modern people.
With the expansion of urban scale, people's demand for vegetables has been continuously increasing, not only reflected in quantity but also in the quality of vegetables. Many people are wondering if it's possible to make growing vegetables like producing products in factories, by concentrating them in a container and allowing them to grow freely. From this, container agriculture gradually entered our vision.
