Ten years of innovation park, growing along with the modernization of agriculture

Since the establishment of the National Agricultural Science and Technology Innovation Park in 2009, it has focused on promoting the integrated development of innovation in agricultural science and technology, the transformation of achievements and the production of models. Through the innovative activities of AgriGarden Company, remarkable achievements in market-oriented technological research and development and transformation of achievements have been achieved and it has gradually become an important window for the secure platform for research and development of agricultural technologies in China, an incubation platform and international exchange and cooperation. More than 40 foreign heads of state and dignitaries have visited here and it has gradually become a world-famous Chinese agricultural business card. The innovation park presented in this live broadcast is a national agricultural science and technology innovation park, which has been renovated and modernized for three years.

The newly completed National Agricultural Science and Technology Innovation Park focuses on the basic needs and advanced basic technologies for the development of the horticultural industry. Relying on research and innovation platforms, the park has built three functional areas: a vertical farm, a joint innovation laboratory and a horticultural innovation center.

AIFarm vertical farm

The AIFarm vertical farm is the world’s first innovative integration of a new production medium that combines an intelligent greenhouse roof, wall system and steel construction form. This is the first real vertical farm in China. A 19-story intelligent plant for unmanned plants, Vertical AIFarm, was built in the vertical farm to give full play to the function of an urban farm and to conduct research and demonstrations on emergency supply of urban vegetables and reducing the carbon in the urban food footprint.

Top 10 collaboration laboratories for innovation

Adhering to the concept of “open sharing, integrated innovation”, the innovation park has built 10 joint innovation laboratories, including leafy vegetables, fruits, raspberries, strawberries, digital gardening and the production of intelligent equipment. The park combines high-quality research resources, high-tech enterprises to achieve cross-border cooperation and joint innovations to promote China’s protected agriculture to achieve rapid and healthy development.

Center for Innovation in Horticulture

The Innovation Center for Horticulture is an industrial innovation component of the National Innovation Park for Agricultural Science and Technology with a total area of ​​more than 10,000 square meters. It has set out five functional areas: the demonstration area for the flower industrialization stage, the exhibition area for scientific and technological achievements in agriculture, the laboratory for planting a flower factory with artificial intelligence, the area for exchange of achievements in the field of agricultural science and technology and the S&T Entrepreneurship Incubation Zone. It aims to bring together an industrial ecology by gathering resources such as talent, technology, capital and services, to serve to transfer and transform scientific and technological advances, to facilitate transactions and to promote the high quality development of the agricultural industry.

The exhibition area of ​​Agricultural S&T Achievement has 2650 square meters of exhibition space with more than 120 booths for international and local high-quality agricultural scientific and technological enterprises and groups in which to settle. It has large and small conference spaces and various exhibition spaces that can host exhibitions of more than 500 people, agricultural science and technology cities. Variety of exhibition business activities such as gatherings, large-scale conferences, lecture halls, etc. It currently brings together the latest scientific and technological innovation achievements from 35 research institutes of the Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences, as well as many high-tech enterprises such as Priva, Viscon, Ammerlaan and Ridder. The color industrialization demonstration area has created six themed urban gardens and 10 distinctive communication spaces that can meet a variety of communication needs, such as lecture halls and business meetings.

The innovative environmental platform welcomes exchange and cooperation

The National Agricultural Science and Technology Innovation Park is expected to be fully operational in September.
