In order to support researchers in research and development from the aspect of equipment, we have set up a greenhouse on the campus of Hokkaido University where we can experiment with facility gardening.
The purpose of this greenhouse is to:
- Heat and light management technology for the climate of Hokkaido
- Verification of new production methods that match the characteristics of agricultural products in Hokkaido
- Development of agricultural support robots
- Development of elemental technologies that contribute to improving the productivity of facility horticulture
For those purposes, by designing with due consideration of these research items and forming a team in charge of maintenance and maintenance of crops in the greenhouse, even researchers who do not have cultivation facilities can do their own research. It is possible to realize a research environment in which seeds can be tested at the production site.
It is expected that this greenhouse will strengthen R & D capabilities that take advantage of the regional characteristics of Hokkaido University.
