We had a presentation about our special green "Mineraleaf" at DOWAS (Deep Ocean Water Application Society) in Sokcho, South Korea. The title was "Cultivation of Leaf Lettuce with Reduced Ca/Mg Ratio using Izu-Akazawa Deep Sea Water". Deep sea water (DSW) is good resource for energy, aquaculture and agriculture, but agricultural use is not progressing. We hope that our new method to use DSW for hydroponics make a contribution to increase agricultural use of DSW.
We had many guest from USA, Canada, Singapore and Thailand etc. They were joining Introductory Training Course on Plant Factory with Artificial Lighting (PFAL) organized by JPFA (Japan Plant Factory Association). Participants took courses about plant factory (vertical indoor farming) and hydroponics technology, and visited some farms around Tokyo. One of the farm they visited was our "VegetaFarm Haneda"!
