Spread Co’s partner, and a member of ENEOS Group, J Leaf Corporation started operating the automated vertical farm “Techno Farm Narita” on the 30th of June.
Spread owns and operates two vertical farms in Western Japan (Kyoto), the Kameoka Plant and Techno Farm Keihanna. Techno Farm Narita is Spread’s first partnership project and the first to be located in Eastern Japan. The most significant feature of Techno Farm Narita is
the increased efficiency in the use of land. This has been achieved by increasing the number of cultivation racks levels to 28, double that of Techno Farm Keihanna.
Techno Farm Narita will produce 30,000 heads of lettuce daily, building on the know-how accumulated through the operation of Techno Farm Keihanna to deliver increasingly sustainable food production.
Unique features of techno farm Narita
It is even more efficient in terms of land saving through the 28-level cultivation rack system. Besides, it is located in the Greater Tokyo Area, allowing for local production and consumption. It will be transforming idle land into efficient and sustainable agriculture. The utilization of renewable energy generated from solar panels makes it more sustainable.
Techno Farm Narita also retains other features of Spread’s food production system, Techno Farm, including pesticide-free, stable cultivation, integrated automation, specialized LED lighting, and Spread’s proprietary IoT-based cultivation management system, Techno Farm Cloud.
