Although we are approaching from the standpoint of plant cultivation of soil cultivation for environmental risk reduction, water saving, energy saving etc. From now on, in particular from the viewpoint of quality – quality of vegetables, water quality of feed water, regeneration of rain water · proper water quality – We will proceed with our efforts.
We believe that “Biome” has great relationship with precise soil moisture management. In addition, we can consider the necessity of management at the level that we can only do with our technology, as well as relative low cost.
Initially, we aim to provide stable supply of low potassium vegetables such as “Dr. Lettuce” and low nitrogen vegetables, by precision management of fertilizer ingredients. In addition, we aim to reduce the total cost.
It is not possible to save water and precise agriculture just by using nonwoven fabric.
Our SIMERUS water supply system organically weaves “nonwoven fabric, soil and plant”.
<From Japanese version topics Additional notes>
-Example of performance of SIMERUS water supply system–
It becomes a complex of sensor and water supply device – hydrophilic nonwoven fabric –
24 hours continuous water supply: Example 1.0 L / day / plant (0.7 cc / min / plant)
Automatic adjustment of capillary water supply according to soil moisture and humidity, Automatic water supply adjustment by capillary effect for each individual plant
– Problems of IoT and AI Big Data Analysis –
Because the variations are very large due to the location of the soil and the pot, it is very costly to install a large number of sensors and pumps for each.
IoT is utilized in growing management, but unless you carry out stable growth with reliable control of water volume, it is difficult to analyze big data of AI – securing reliable teacher data.
After all, water management is also important.
A large-scale facility cultivation, for the plant factory, also, can also be applied for vegetable cultivation at home, it is a new irrigation system.
The plant does not come into contact directly to the water.
Also greening of large area can support.
In a very simple structure, it has a high economic efficiency.
Note The following is the simplest arrangement of home improvement.
It is a new product of high performance hydrophilic non-woven fabric.
Flowers and ornamental plants, nursery, small vegetables, It is suitable for those of irrigation.
In particular, it is very useful for the coming season.
For example, it is also useful for cultivation in the window.
Caution; just in case, water may leak and also used in a safe place.
With SIMERUS, soil should not be to excessive moisture. In addition, the air does not become to excessive moisture. Therefore, it will also be cheaper air conditioning cost.
Therefore, it is also easy to install near room window or in the warehouse.
Auxiliary, the use of fluorescent lamp (or LED) for plant is also effective.
In the photo of this warehouse, since the use all year round, it is attached and air conditioning.
In addition, we have energy savings with a simple insulation.
In general, large fertilizer content and water loss in the soil cultivation, further, is also difficult circulation recycling of water. In hydroponics, basically, I can not feed water control only in the nutrient solution concentration osmotic pressure, further, there is a need for disinfection of the nutrient solution.

Leaf vegetables and soil plant, it is comfortable to cultivation from autumn.
Vegetable cultivation, the over spring from the fall, with less insects,
Especially leaf vegetables is because the whole is eaten efficient.
In addition, there is a recipe for broccoli leaves.
Notes of liquid fertilizer use
-SIMERUS watering tape-
In order to avoid the occurrence of algae in the PET plastic bottles by liquid fertilizer use, shielded by coating a PET plastic bottle.
In SIMERUS, it is relatively easy to manage that do not generate wastewater.
Pesticides are also safe to use not contaminate the outside environment.
Also it will prevent poisoning and diseases caused by accidental ingestion. Continue reading FAQ Danger full, Reservoir water to the flowerpot saucer
You get the hang of watering?
“Moisten lightly the soil“, this soil management is difficult in other ways.
Furthermore, basically variations will be a very large problem.
Some of the plants will wither.
A lot of sensor, such as a photograph is required.
