Particularly, during the plantation process, a package of technologies has been used to ensure a favorable environment for high-quality agricultural products, including soilless cultivation, automated ventilation and irrigation, and an intelligent temperature control system. The park does not use pesticides but adopts the nutrient solution to enable the plantation to consume less water than a traditional plantation and promote the efficiency of the growing process.
