It also illustrates how farmers can monitor real-time conditions in greenhouses through smart phone applications and remotely control facilities in greenhouses.


The fisheries zone introduces the deep sea cage culture model, a real-time phytoplankton monitoring system and pearl farming.


There are also music and cultural performances, cooking demonstrations and interactive games.
