Yasheng Group, a China-based agricultural company, is expanding its seed segment business scope to include contract R&D seed breeding services, large-scale seed multiplication operations, processing of certifications for import and export, and distribution for international seed companies to access China's seed market. Currently the company produces planting seeds for use within the company and for resale to other growers, as well as edible seeds, seeds for animal feeds, and oils.
Through Yasheng Group’s own genetic research and development efforts, which include the cultivation of hybrid seed strains, the company will expand its ability in processing, seed treatment, packaging, and storing to service domestic and international companies for exclusive production. The company can implement long-term breeding programs with large-scale seed multiplication abilities. The company's operations are located in North West China and produce high quality seeds at low cost compared to foreign companies and compared to Chinese seed companies located close to coastal regions.
