Chaipattana Basis, dtac and NECTEC staff as much as proceed analysis undertaking of Lingzhi mushroom with 5G, IoT & machine studying

16 August, 2022 – The Chaipattana Basis, dtac, and the Nationwide Electronics and Laptop Expertise Centre (NECTEC), which is a part of the Nationwide Science and Expertise Improvement Company (NSTDA), inked the second part of their co-research initiative into Lingzhi mushroom sensible farming, brining 5G expertise, Web of issues (IoT) and machine studying to the undertaking following preliminary success in rising Lingzhi mushroom in single digit levels celsius.

The initiative is performed on the basis’s Highland Agriculture Analysis and Improvement Mission, Fang subdistrict, Chiangmai province, and is aimed toward selling digital and administration abilities by way of greenhouse cultivation amongst Thai farmers, leading to a greater high quality of life and sustainable earnings era.

Sumet Tantivejkul, secretary-general of the Chaipattana Basis, says “This collaboration of the Chaipattana Basis, dtac, and the NECTEC marks the continuity of our co-research that goes again to our first experiment within the winter of 2019. All of us contributed to a profitable experiment and growth of gadgets that managed the mushroom’s greenhouse atmosphere. Due to our efforts, the managed atmosphere got here considerably near the actual atmosphere that greatest helps rising Lingzhi mushrooms. Now, we’ve launched into this new collaboration to assist continued educational and manufacturing-technology growth, resulting in expertise disruption to ensure that farmers to have the ability to adapt to emergening sensible farming developments. Applied sciences and digital options will play a job in greenhouse administration sooner or later, empowering digital-age farmers who will then get pleasure from a greater high quality of life in addition to higher financial, social, and environmental advantages in a approach that additionally helps sustainable growth”.

Boonchai Bencharongkul, chair of the board of administrators at dtac, says “dtac is able to absolutely assist the Chaipattana Basis on a continued foundation for the aim of empowering farmer teams with applied sciences paving the best way for not simply their wellbeing but in addition Thailand’s total prosperity. The success of such targets will mark the ‘true victory of growth’. Our collaboration now enters its fourth yr with 5G expertise used for the in-depth analysis on Lingzhi mushroom development and low season cultivation. So far, our collaboration has already led to the profitable cultivation of Lingzhi mushrooms in the course of the winter when temperatures are decrease than 10 levels Celsius. dtac and the NECTEC have dropped at the collaboration IoT expertise and sensing gadgets, cameras, and numerous measuring devices. Our undertaking has discovered that Lingzhi mushrooms are delicate to their atmosphere, thus additional collaboration will contain expertise and specialists on machine studying, synthetic intelligence (AI) and cloud methods. Our co-research will turn out to be much more environment friendly with knowledge compiled and analysed real-time, enabling the identification of correct parameters, boosting Lingzhi-mushroom farms’ productiveness each in and low season cultivation as farmers achieve extra digital abilities.

Chai Wutiwiwatchai, government director of the NECTEC, says “The second part of our co-research marks a milestone within the nation’s analysis and growth in agriculture for the long run, creating an ecosystem that facilitates the usage of agritech, which may apply at native ranges, and units examples for numerous fields of agriculture with the targets of including worth, creating jobs, and producing sustainable earnings. We have now recruited the assistance of the Nationwide Biobank of Thailand – which can also be below NTSDA – for our co-research that goals to determine correct environmental components that might profit Lingzhi mushroom development. We have now already simulated the fascinating atmosphere by integrating knowledge from sensors and related pictures. AI applied sciences are deployed for evaluation and experiment planning. As well as, we’ve explored manufacturing formulation to search out the one which most accurately fits winter and requires the bottom electrical energy bills, which will likely be utilized to giant Lingzhi mushroom greenhouses sooner or later”.

The part 2 of the initiative is a vital mission, which originated from the outcomes of our area journey involving the examine and analysis on the undertaking website on Could 1, 2019 throughout Part 1. Now, Part 2, the following chapter of our collaboration has taken off. Part 2 will run for 3 years however the collaboration appears set to proceed additional in pursuit of our important aim of enabling farmers to embrace the advantages of the digital financial system with good high quality of life, which is able to in flip strengthen Thailand’s total prosperity.
