In 2011, modern agriculture developed rapidly in Shule County, Xinjiang, with four intelligent greenhouses and more than 120 solar greenhouses being built. Those greenhouses take advantage of a microcomputer to control the temperature, plant and take care of the flowers in a factory production management mode on the basis of indexes, such as flowers' moisture, nutrients and humidity, in order to accelerate the development of the flower industry.
