I like rural life on the farm and knowing that I can provide my family with healthy vegetables while running a business that supplies villages with fresh produce. From the experience we have made overcoming challenges, I now know that by refining our systems with technology and by applying the knowledge we learn about sustainable farming and safety, we can continue to demonstrate what works well with nature and get the best quality for our customers – working together in this way we can only get better and better.

Technology for sustainable greenhouse growing 

As Bayer’s first ForwardFarm in APAC, Yinhuang Farm embraces greener farming methods using advanced technology that works in harmony with nature. With her community spirit, and willingness to adopt new methods in the face of change, Aiteng Qin also demonstrates her resilience and inspires local farming businesses, even making a shift to e-commerce to serve her customers during the pandemic crisis. At Yinhuang, smaller, neighboring farms can experience firsthand what can be achieved with early adoption of innovation and modern, sustainable farm management practices. The consistent growing environment in Yinhuang greenhouses is achieved by using high-quality seeds and through careful monitoring of growing crops while maintaining high safety standards to apply crop protection. Aiteng also combines chemical, biological, and physical crop protection to help reduce the use of chemical products and enable better pest resistance management so she can continue to sustainably cultivate reliable, bountiful harvests of vegetables and strawberries for citizens of Beijing.
