因氣候變遷,地球溫室效應加劇造成可耕地面積大幅減少及農作物栽種不易導致糧食短缺問題發生。如何解決糧食短缺問題已成為世界各國的重要議題。臺灣現有的農作物耕作,大多面臨植物生長監控、單位體積產量、產期調控、節能、病蟲害自動偵測與防災等技術門檻。植物工廠技術的發展具備穩定量產方式生產作物,更有具低能耗、高生產效率、減省人力的特點,因此未來在面臨糧食短缺的壓力下,植物工廠的市場需求將遽增。目前全球植物工廠之技術發展較領先者為日本與荷蘭,正是台灣開始蓬勃發展植物工廠的良好契機!

台灣擁有優良的農業發展基礎,更具有資通、半導體等科技產業實力,成立「台灣植物工廠產業發展協會」的目的,希望以產業群聚力量將台灣的農業與科技能量加乘,發揮更大的效益。搭配跨領域合作平台,可以快速縮短台灣在植物工廠摸索階段時程,發展各領域的產業應用,快速建立共通性基礎技術及應用,以協助國內產業跨入新領域,共創植物工廠產業新商機。

A word from the Chairman
Due to the climate change, the increase of the global warming effect has resulted in a significant reduction in the area of arable land, and it has not been easy for crop planting to cause food shortages. How to solve the food shortage problem has become an important issue for countries in the world. Most existing agricultural crops in Taiwan are faced with technical thresholds such as plant growth monitoring, unit volume production, regulation of production period, energy conservation, automatic detection of diseases and insect pests, and prevention of disasters. The development of plant and plant technology has the characteristics of stable production and production of crops. It is also characterized by low energy consumption, high production efficiency, and reduced manpower. Therefore, under the pressure of food shortages in the future, the market demand for plant factories will increase. At present, the leading technology manufacturers in the global plant industry are Japan and the Netherlands. It is a good opportunity for Taiwan to start vigorously developing plant factories!

The aim to establish “Taiwan Plant Factory Development Association” is that Taiwan has a good foundation in agricultural development as it is supported by information and communication, semiconductor and other technical industries, so it is hoped that the industrial agglomeration will multiply the agricultural and technological energy in Taiwan to play its maximum efficiency. Collaboration with a cross-border cooperation platform can quickly shorten the fumbling stage of plant factories in Taiwan, develop industrial applications in various fields, and quickly establish common basic technologies and applications to assist domestic industries to enter new fields and create new business opportunities for plant factories.
