Members of the Chinese navy garrisoned on an island in the Xisha islands of the South China Sea recently harvested 750 kilograms of vegetables grown on its sandy beaches.

Several kinds of vegetables, including Pakchoi cabbage and lettuce, were harvested from a “sand-to-earth” experimental field on Yongxing Island, Sansha, South China's Hainan Province

The experiment, conducted jointly by the garrison and Chongqing Jiaotong University, proved to be a success. 

The technology is expected to solve the shortage of green vegetables on the island and other similar ones.
