However, when the reporter went to 200 meters away from the post of a new solar panels in solar greenhouse, a stretch of lettuce, leeks, lettuce, celery, parsley leaves more than 10 kinds of fresh vegetables gratifying. Commander Zhang Xisheng told reporters, the soldiers eat first, “permafrost” region-grown fresh vegetables, ending 55 years of the post cards of kinds of fresh vegetables, not the history, creating a military alpine plateau at an altitude of 5380 m fresh vegetables planted the first of its kind.

Standing in the warm spring and canopy, pointing to green vegetables commander Zhang told reporters here the average temperature is below zero, the maximum temperature difference between day and night more than 30 degrees, up to 6 months in winter, the air’s oxygen content less than the ground 45%, while the UV intensity is higher than 50%, is the “plateau of the plateau.” For decades, generations of men have to try to grow vegetables and keep the defense more than 50 were unsuccessful. In the past the company’s main non-staple food cans, pulled from the foot soldiers bite mainly due to the distance, combined with large temperature difference between mountain and hills, fresh vegetables into a group to the checkpoint after the “mud”, loss of nearly half.
Zhang commander said in the past, winter is basically to eat soybeans, potatoes, cabbage, sometimes potatoes, cabbage have to eat, the soldiers on the use of solid soy sauce spiced with hot melted snow surface to eat bread, the soldiers said with a smile “Sanctuary Cove brand Laoganma, flavoursome!”
plateau eat fresh vegetables has been concerned about the officers and men at all levels of the head of the heart. Wada Military Commander Chen springs, in recent years, to address the Plateau border “to eat fresh vegetables and difficult” issue, the Department of General Logistics Department, military supplies, fuel, and the Xinjiang Military District, to organize the Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences, Xinjiang Academy of Agricultural Sciences, Shihezi University of experts, many times on the plateau, to the frontier research and demonstration. Fairy Bay for local soil, geography, climate is not suitable for crops, while the use of soilless cultivation techniques, and built solar greenhouse, full use of sunlight, geothermal resources, relying on natural light and temperature insulation materials in the construction of their own best heat storage effect. After repeated trials, and ultimately adopted a “greenhouse-based overhead systems, solar panels lighting system, automatic shutter system, heating system, drip irrigation system, melt-water systems, carbon dioxide gas fertilizer systems, substrate cultivation system” and eight large high-tech system solar energy greenhouse built and successfully grow fresh vegetables. Officers and men to eat first self-produced vegetables on the snowy plateau.
“This is a stretch of the new little green fairy Bay not only ended the history of post can not grow vegetables, but also to the officers and men brought a new joy in life,” Instructor Wang Qijie told reporters in the past, in order to able to eat fresh vegetables in the highlands, many officers and men want to “trick”: They planted garlic in cans in the box, could not bear to eat 21 to Jin, he used to make nutritious, but not enough to pay for the whole company of a garlic fried garlic eggs … … and now, with fresh vegetables, the officers and men a good appetite, the company carried out many years of “eating contest” is a glorious laid off.
now has grown green vegetables, the soldiers of the mood better. “Spare time, his comrades will be shed to warm to ‘suck oxygen’ to see fresh vegetables.” Watering vegetable cultivation are members of Huang Peixin told reporters, “listen to talk about the old squad leader, the veteran could not get past the mountains of fresh vegetables , hair loss, nail depression and other phenomena, later, never happened. “
Today, soldiers matrix of greenhouse soilless cultivation techniques play the most, the class ranked in the checkpoints successfully trained more than 100 basin “fresh vegetables flowers”, dotted with the most recent posts from the day, so the snow-covered plateau filled with the breath of spring.
195 square meters of greenhouses in the company, the reporter saw to leafy green vegetables grown in the greenhouse-based, can not meet the need of the company’s vegetable supply. But Zhang Xisheng company commander said, “this piece of vegetable nutrition in addition to officers and soldiers to bring security, it is also a spiritual comfort in the future we will further explore the experience, and strive to be a variety of some.”

fairy Bay on a stretch of green, only Sin Sin Sin is not seasonal.
decades, generations of gods and gods Bay wishes when accomplished, has to try to grow vegetables more than 50 times were unsuccessful. As akin to finding far, brought down the mountain to the rear of the fresh vegetables into a mass of “mud.”
Now, with this latest plot from the days of green, the company carried out many years of “eating contest” is “glorious laid off”, the soldiers disk green, and green eyes, nose breathing is green.
think about the last dinner, the password is “beans”, back to make a “potato” to see the current seasonal become “a piece of cake”, is not it a little cooking wine peaks, cloud, Gourmet Kitchen, The pleasant gods envy it?
solutions than problems. However, the individual is always a limited way. To eat fresh vegetables, post officers and men had struggled to Jin, he saved his mouth used as base material, can be grown in a fried food is not enough.
or organizations have the means. Various experts a result, the vegetables are no longer “bonsai”, flowers are no longer “painting.”
fairy world so how ah! Heart in soldiers, the soldiers in mind, Sanctuary Cove on the game gods, snow-covered plateau spring seasons.
