Chinese Firms Investing in China

China’s agricultural industry is receiving much investment interest from venture capital and private equity companies. Still, there are risks, including: small profits and inclement weather. These financial sources invested 305-million dollars in the agricultural industry in the first half of this year.

Companies began investing in China's agricultural industry about five years ago. Between then and June of this year, their accumulated investment in the industry has totaled 1.76-billion dollars. Crop farming, pesticides, fertilizer and animal husbandry have garnered the most money.

For example, Beijing Century Chestnut Ecological Agriculture Co Ltd, a company that provides eggs and chickens to large Chinese cities, raised 100 million yuan, or about 15.8-million dollars this year from a financial consortium led by the Shanghai-based DT Capital Partners. is dedicated to serving the agricultural industry in the Carolinas and Virginia with the latest ag news, exclusive regional weather station readings, and key crop market information.
