Researcher of the Vegetable Farming System
Welcome to the Urban Vegetable Farm. Are you surprised to see a whole floor full of vegetables growing inside this kind of building? Please pick and sample the fresh harvest. Isn’t it delicious?
Like this city, there are many areas where there’s just not enough room for farming or where it’s difficult to grow vegetables because of the climate. The Vegetable Farming Solution by Panasonic will make fresh vegetables easily available for people in these areas. As a home electronics manufacturer, Panasonic has developed various technologies to control air and water as well as management technology for manufacturing processes. Now the company is applying that expertise to agriculture. By fully utilizing proprietary technologies for lighting, ventilation, IT and energy savings, Panasonic has made efficient vegetable production possible regardless of the weather conditions or land restrictions.
As globalization in our dining progressed after 2020, demand for all kinds of cuisine and food has been increasing. At the same time, the movement for local production and consumption of food has been spreading, and this has implications for reducing distribution costs and increasing food safety. This Vegetable Farm can be an effective solution responding to these trends. This approach can also help solve food shortages for many parts of the world.
The technology and solutions presented here were announced in the above press release or exhibition. Some are in the R&D stage or are under consideration for commercialization.
