Melon and lettuce cultivation

In Yunotsu establishment, we started the agriculture business basing on the site of a former factory in 2010. We brought up with the simple hydroponic cultivation system (commonly known as toro box cultivation) developed by the Shimane Prefectural Agricultural Technology Center as a method of cultivating 2 types of melon and lettuce on a concrete basement environment. In addition, besides the drainage system, we also apply a solar radiation proportional control device, which helps the plants grow efficiently.
