41

Delivers Mycorrhizal Inoculants to Top Agriculture Market

As part of its steady global expansion, Groundwork BioAg opened a representative office in China to serve one of the world’s leading agriculture markets, with approximately 127 million hectares of harvested farm cropland.

The company’s flagship BioPlatform – Rootella® – will be available to farmers across four of the world’s major agricultural markets: the United States, Brazil, India, and now China.

Located in the city of Sanya in the agricultural hub of Hainan Province, the representative office will act as Groundwork BioAg’s business center for customers and partners across China. Mr. Shu Yang, an experienced manager in agriculture and biologicals, will lead the office.

The new business center will enable the company to help farmers enact China’s 14th Five-Year National Agriculture Green Development Plan. Announced in October of 2021, the Plan identified resource protection, pollution control, restoration of agricultural ecology, and the development of low-carbon agricultural industrial chains as key goals to be achieved by 2025.

According to the FAO, China is among the world’s largest agricultural producers of cereals, cotton, fruit, and vegetables, and remains second only to the United States in corn production.

Groundwork BioAg is the first mycorrhiza producer that can support large-scale agriculture based on its unique production capabilities. Applied on more than one million acres in 2021, Rootella is based on naturally robust strains of mycorrhizal fungi that are symbiotic with 90% of plant species, offering the most efficient and effective solution to diverse crops and growing areas.

Groundwork BioAg has established commercial operations across most of the world’s major agricultural markets, including the United States, Brazil, China, India, Canada, Europe, Ukraine, and New Zealand.

In March, Groundwork BioAg® was named by Fast Company as one of the World’s Most Innovative Food Companies for 2022 for tackling grand challenges facing humankind today: food security, soil health, and climate change.
