corn on the cob 1690387 640Origin Agritech, an agricultural technology company, has established a large-scale production area for corn seed and has built a seed processing and conditioning plant through Xinjiang OriginBo Seed Limited, a subsidiary of Origin for seed production

The plant has the potential to produce 30,000 tonnes of GMO corn seed per year, which would cover a planting area of 20 M Mu (1.33 M HA).

“We have developed a portfolio of what we believe to be the highest quality GMO corn seed traits in China,” said Dr Gengchen Han, Origin’s chairman and CEO.

“But in order to be in control of our own destiny and to be in a position to fully capitalise on this enormous developmental market opportunity, we have invested heavily in establishing our own production capabilities. With our seed characteristics moving through the approval process, our massive production capacity and our large distribution network, we are ideally positioned for success, “he added.
