The Hanoitimes - Japan’s Showa Denko Group has worked in conjunction with authorities from the northern province of Ha Nam to design a plan to develop a clean vegetable production plant using LED lighting technology.
During a working session with leaders of the provincial People’s Committee on January 19, the firm’s General Director, Daiken Murakami, briefed them on the new technology, stressing its necessity for current agricultural production as outdoor cultivation methods are experiencing negative impacts from climate change.
The modern method can ensure plants receive the necessary growth amenities, ultimately helping conserve water, reducing crop waste volume by 40%, and contributing to lower production costs.
Daiken Murakami said his firm has built 21 plants applying the technology in Japan and plans to expand the model to other countries around the world.
The group is eager to cooperate with Vietnamese clean vegetable producers, he added.
Secretary of the provincial Party Committee Mai Tien Dung introduced a number of high-quality clean vegetable growing models in the province, suggesting cooperation between Showa Denko and Ha Nam’s An Phu Hung Company to carry out the model in the near future.
The An Phu Hung Company has previously partnered with Japan’s H.B.C International to successfully implement a Japanese technology organic vegetable-planting model in Ha Nam.
