Agricultural development in the Gobi not only satisfies local demand for the “vegetable basket”, but also keeps prices affordable for consumers.

In the Chinese district of Suzhou, new technologies are being tested in the Gobi desert.

Suzhou is the country’s largest agricultural demonstration area in the Gobi, where there are greenhouse facilities powered by solar energy and extensive hydroponic “fields” of various cultures.

In the Gobi greenhouses, three categories of vegetables are grown, all kinds of edible mushrooms and berries. In total, more than 120 plant varieties – with full traceability of the production, acquisition, storage and transportation of agricultural products, APK-Inform reports: vegetables and fruits.

Currently, 44 organic agricultural products, 1 agricultural product with a geographical indication and 21 registered well-known brands have been successfully certified in the area.

Agricultural development in the Gobi not only satisfies local demand for a “vegetable basket” throughout the year by supplying the traditional Chinese three of the most popular vegetables (potatoes, cabbage, daikon) during the winter, but also keeps prices affordable for consumers.

Highly intelligent greenhouses have opened a new path for raising capital, as farmers are interested in participating in production in order to increase their income.

For local farmers in the Gobi solar greenhouses, 800 square meters of solar greenhouses are allocated for rent.

Zhang Gusen, winner of the category “Ten Best National Models for Promoting Agricultural Technology in 2019”, constantly introduces innovations in his research and development of new technologies, demonstrates new varieties, selects special equipment and creates technical standards.

Li Single, over 50 years old, is considered a “soil expert” in the Gobi solar greenhouse in Suzhou. He is well known among local farmers. He and his wife rented 3 solar greenhouses in the Gobi agricultural park.

For ordinary Gobi farmers, the annual net income from each solar greenhouse is about 35,000 yuan ($ 4,930), which is equivalent to the net income from planting 100 acres of wheat per year.

In recent years, Gobi’s agricultural products have been exported to Beijing, Shanghai and other cities in China, and production facilities have been built for storing vegetables. In the long run, farmers would like to export their Made in Gobi brand products.
