BEIJING, July 30 /Xinhua-PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- China Agritech, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: CAGC) ("China Agritech", the "Company"), a leading liquid fertilizer manufacturer in China, announced that it has completed the construction of its new converting facility in Urumqi City, Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region of China.

China Agritech completed the construction of the new facility at the end of June 2007 and is now in the process of test running the equipment. Large-scale production is expected to begin at the beginning of August 2007. The factory has an initial annual production capacity of 2,000 metric tons and will be producing the Company's new Green Vitality product, which is customized to the soil conditions of the region. The factory will primarily supply large state-owned farms through its wholesale channel as well as distributors in Russia and western Asia.

"We are excited to have completed our fifth converting factory which enables us to enter the Xinjiang region. We now effectively cover all the primary agricultural regions of China, and are truly a national fertilizer brand," commented Mr. Yu Chang, President and CEO of China Agritech. "Xinjiang is the largest agricultural province in China, and the local government allows only registered fertilizer manufacturers to sell their products there. Our successful registration of Green Vitality is the stepping-stone to penetrating this important agricultural market. We expect this region will significantly contribute to both our revenue and net income growth."

Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region of China has 25% of the country's arable land, making it the largest amount of arable land in China, according to statistics from the Peoples Republic of China. Xinjiang Production and Construction Corp ("XPCC") manages the companies engaged in production and distribution of agricultural materials such as seeds, fertilizer, and pesticides within the province. On June 15, 2007, China Agritech was granted its registration to be listed as a vendor for the government after a two-year evaluation by the provincial government of Xinjiang.
