Proposal for a package of cultivation and plant protection technologies

Our cultivation research center demonstrates the cultivation of strawberries.
Using our products (fertilizers, agrochemicals and BS) and cultivation technology, we grow strawberries in Tokushima. We sell agricultural products under the brand name “Hohoemi Ichigo® (Smile Strawberry),” which is highly evaluated in the market. In addition, this demonstrative field has obtained the certification of “GLOBALG.A.P.”

Pursuit of reliability, safety, and high yield

●Adoption of cultivation methods that do not use synthetic agricultural chemicals as much as possible In the cultivation from 2019 to 2020, we were able to limit the number of times of use of synthetic agricultural chemicals to 15 (5 in the field and 10 in raising seedlings). In Tokushima Prefecture, the number of times of customary plant protection is 54. In order to realize cultivation with reduced agrochemicals, we adopted the cutting-edge cultivation technologies, including the use of green agrochemicals, planting after highly concentrated CO2 treatment, and UV-B lamps. We also achieved a yield of 6.1 tons/10 a with the variety “Sachinoka.”

Response to smart agriculture (greenhouse horticulture)

Based on automatic diagnosis with sensors, cameras, and AI, we aim to actualize cultivation suited for each growth stage.

Automation and labor saving in cultivation

①Development of a technology for automatically diagnosing growth of plants with stationary cameras

Automatic measurement of the growth status, etc.
→Linkage with liquid fertilizer mixing equipment and provision of advice

②Development of automatic technologies for spraying agrochemicals to leaves

Collaborative development of electrostatic self-propelled spraying equipment
