2009-01-12 12:02 736

-- Up to 50% increase in annual production capacity

XI'AN, China, Jan. 12 /PRNewswire-Asia-FirstCall/ -- China Green Agriculture, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: CGAG) ("China Green Agriculture" or "the Company"), a leading producer and distributor of humic acid ("HA") based liquid compound fertilizer through its wholly owned subsidiary, Shaanxi TechTeam Jinong Humic Acid Product Co., Ltd., today announced that the Company has completed technical upgrades and efficiency improvements at its current fertilizer production facility.

China Green Agriculture's previous production capacity was 10,000 metric tons per year. The completion of the upgrade will enable the Company to produce up to 15,000 metric tons of HA liquid fertilizer per year. The technical and software upgrades will also enable the Company to produce higher quality HA fertilizer at a more efficient rate.

"Based on our extensive distribution network, strong marketing efforts and sustained market demand for our green fertilizer products, we expect that our increased capacity will be quickly absorbed by the Chinese fertilizer market. This expansion will be China Green Agriculture's primary growth driver for the fiscal year ending June 30, 2009, allowing us to meet our revenue and net income targets," commented Mr. Tao Li, Chairman and CEO of China Green Agriculture. "Although we are pleased that this current increase in capacity will allow us to cater to growing market demand in the short term, we are even more excited about the completion of our new, 40,000 metric ton facility which is expected to come online in July 2009 and provide the resources for continued expansion," added Mr. Li.
