Shenzhen to Build Eco-Agricultural High-Tech ParkThe booming southern city of Shenzhen will spend three billion yuan (about 362 million U.S. dollars) to build a modern eco-agricultural high-tech industrial park.
A blueprint drafted by the city government shows that the 4,533- hectare park will consist of three parts: the Guangming-Gongming high-tech agricultural zone, the Pingshan eco-agricultural science and technology corridor and a marine life high-tech zone.
A modern cow farm and cow breeding center mainly supported by bio-technologies, and a boar breeding center, as well as a seedling nursery in cooperation with an American company, will be built inside the Guangming-Gongming zone. Pollution-free vegetables and fruit, and flowers will also be produced in the zone.
In the future the Pingshan eco-agricultural science and technology corridor will feature 13 specialized centers devoted to 13 different fields covering tea, genetically modified pigs and cattle, among others.
The marine life high-tech zone will concentrate on industrialized breeding of abalone, high-yield shrimps, introduction and breeding of marine fry, breeding of fish in deep- water areas, and research on marine life and disease prevention.
When the park is fully completed, it is expected to generate an additional 2.28 billion yuan (about 275 million U.S. dollars) in output value annually.
