Business Description

Industry: Consumer Packaged Goods » Farm Products
Compare: » details
Traded in other countries:4ACA.Germany
Agria Corporation is a Cayman Islands incorporated holding company that conducts substantially all of its operations in China through its contractual arrangements with P3A, which is its consolidated affiliated entity, and through its wholly-owned subsidiaries in China. The Company is engaged in research and development, production and sale of three different types of upstream agricultural products. It offers corn seeds, sheep products and seedling products. It specializes in three types of products: corn seeds, sheep products and seedlings. It also produces and sells generic corn seeds whose intellectual property rights have expired in China. The Company's frozen sheep semen products are mainly used for artificial insemination to produce breeder sheep or sheep for mutton or wool. Sheep semen is collected and frozen in plastic straws. The Company's sheep embryo products are mainly used for embryo transplants to produce breeder sheep or sheep for mutton or wool. Embryos are collected from pregnant breeder ewes and are frozen in plastic straws. It mainly produces and sells dates and white bark pine seedlings. It uses tissue culture technology to conduct virus-free rapid propagation for the production of date seedlings. In addition, since date trees are usually very tall, which makes it difficult for nutrients to reach their higher branches, it uses grafting techniques to lower their height. It produces seedlings for evergreen white bark pine. Evergreen white bark pine is one of the preferred plants for urban plantation in the northern part of China because it does not turn brown or gray in the winter, unlike many other pine species found in this part of China. It markets its corn seed products through pre-sale training, demonstrations and presentations to distributors, farmers and other potential customers. The agricultural industry in China is highly fragmented, largely regional and competitive.
