At the very beginning, Li Shaohua introduced Fujian San’an Sino-Science Photobiotech Co., Ltd (hereafter referred to as San’an Sino-Science), a joint venture founded by IBCAS and Fujian San’an Group. Then he detailed the research achievements and breakthroughs of San’an Sino-Science on fields as light recipes and lighting product development, nutrient formula, regulation of plant growth and development, cultivation techniques and efficient production mode, intelligent equipment and environmental control, overall solutions for plant factories, etc.
After his presentation, participants posed certain questions to the topics in the report. Li Shaohua answered their questions and exchanged ideas with them. He also expressed that San’an Sino-Science would like to cooperate with Japanese plant factories on R&D of plant factory technology and other aspects, so as to propel the sound development of plant factory industry in the world.
Open to the world, the training course of JPFAis designed to enhance the exchanges between practitioners in Japanese plant factories in order to achieve sound development of the plant factories. The San’an Sino-Scienceis the first Chinese company of plant factory invited by JPFA. Therefore, this visitis quite conducive for promoting the international influence of plant factory study in China.
