A research greenhouse has been completed in Zhejiang University’s Agricultural Science and Technology Innovation Experimental Center, China. This research greenhouse designed and built by Kingpeng has a total area of 132,210 square meters, including an artificial climate room, teaching display greenhouse, glass and net greenhouse room, insect control net greenhouse, and various experimental greenhouses. In total, there are 11 single greenhouses and 137 growing rooms.
"Each greenhouse integrates automatic control system which also includes fire protection monitoring and access control monitoring systems," the Kingpeng team shows. "It can accurately monitor and adjust the internal environment of the greenhouse through various forms such as computers and mobile phones. Independently control of equipment in each room is possible."
The control system will collect climate data of each room, these data will be categorized and analyzed for further study.
137 separate rooms have been built for different experiments. Not only a general glass greenhouse but also net houses, plant factories, and artificial climate rooms, etc. have been built for different experiment requests.
“In each room, there are also different cultivation systems used for different crops. This is to make more possibility on a multivariate experiment during agriculture study” said a Professor of The Rural Development Academy Zhejiang University.
This research center is put into use in June and is currently the most advanced agricultural facility experimental zone in China and we believe it will become the most advanced support for agriculture-related research in the future!
