Do everyone know what a plant factory is? Unpredictable natural disasters and uncontrollable extreme weather continue to affect food production, and too many unstable factors affect the development of agriculture. The emergence of plant factories has opened up a promising solution path for us.
So what is a plant factory? In our traditional understanding, plant growth must rely on sunlight and soil, but this traditional planting method relies on the weather for food. The so-called plant factory does not rely on soil and is not affected by the natural environment. It produces plants under fully industrialized conditions by simulating the necessary factors such as light, temperature, and nutrition for plants. Plant factories are considered a subversion of traditional farming methods and represent the direction of future agricultural development.
Speaking of zip hydroponic equipment, it is a common planting equipment in plant factories. The number of crops that can be planted in the Zip system is the largest planting equipment among all soilless cultivation systems. The Zip system saves space for vertical planting, especially for large-scale planting, which is very advantageous. In addition, the bottom of the zip planting equipment is equipped with wheels for easy movement.
The Zip system is a planting system that uses hydroponic cultivation techniques. The hydroponic system is easy to understand and can be said to be closely related to hydroponic equipment. Using hydroponic cultivation has more advantages than using soil cultivation. By not relying on soil, soil pollution and pest pollution can be avoided, resulting in greener vegetables.
The hydroponic planting system sounds very advanced, but in reality, it is also relatively simple to operate, and some people can even perform simple hydroponic planting without training. It is useful in greenhouses and daily household planting, and can provide a variety of vegetable types for planting. For example, the zip system can plant various green leafy vegetables, flowers, and herbs.
Plant factories play a significant role in promoting the future development of agriculture and promoting sustainable agricultural development.
1. Alleviating food shortages: With the increasing global population and increasing human demand for food, traditional agriculture cannot provide higher food supply due to limitations in land, water resources, and other aspects. Plant factories can achieve agricultural cultivation in cities and alleviate food supply pressure.
2. Promoting sustainable agricultural development: The use of soilless cultivation technology in plant factories can not only save water and arable land resources, but also reduce soil and water pollution caused by pesticide use, promoting the sustainable process of agriculture.
3. Meeting the food needs of modern people: The continuous improvement of living standards has made our requirements for food increasingly stringent, and green and pollution-free food has become our pursuit. The food grown through soilless cultivation techniques such as hydroponic cultivation is truly green and organic vegetables.
ZIP container planting is common in plant factories, and linking hydroponic planting with containers for easy storage and transportation can add to our planting technology. Next time we will introduce how to carry out planting in zip containers, let's look forward to it together!
