Sino Agro Food, Inc. Develops Breakthrough Agricultural Technology for Use in Cold Weather Climates

May 4, 2010

GUANGZHOU, China--()--Sino Agro Food, Inc. (Pink Sheet: SIAF), an emerging integrated, diversified agriculture technology and organic food company with subsidiaries operating in China, is pleased to announce it has successfully developed a new Enzyme technology for use in agricultural applications such as Stock Feed and Bio-Organic Fertilizer production in cold weather climates.

The new Enzyme is derived from the Company’s currently patented Enzyme used in the manufacturing of its Stock Feed and Bio-Organic Fertilizer and the foundation of its farmer cooperative business model. Technology such as the one developed by the scientists of Sino Agro Food, Inc. has been pursued for decades within China to solve agricultural production problems associated with Feed Stock and Bio-Organic Fertilizer in northern China.

Independent tests conducted by scientists and staff from Xining University and the HuangYuan Agriculture Department showed that at 4°C, fermentation and maturity of the germination process was completed in 7 days. The currently available technology requires up to 21 days at 15°C. This represents over a 60% reduction in time and over a 70% reduction in temperature needed to complete the conversion process.

The new Enzyme will allow for faster production of Stock Feed and Bio-Organic Fertilizer in the colder climates of northern China. Due to the Enzyme’s lower temperature requirement, production can continue for a longer period of time during the winter months. This will also enable the use of the Company’s proven Organic cycle and farmer cooperative model in these colder regions opening up new areas for expansion possibilities.

Mr. Lee Solomon, Sino Agro Food, Inc. CEO, stated, “This is a major development for the Company and we are very pleased with the results. We will now have the competitive edge in manufacturing both Feed Stock and Bio-Organic Fertilizer in the regions of northern China that have historically had problems due to cold weather. We have already generated interest from Qinghai Province and are anticipating a meeting with the Secretary General of Qinghai Province in the near future.”

The Company has also recently begun talks with government officials from TungDak District, China which is located adjacent to HuangYuan District. TungDak District has agreed to provide up to 150,000 Mu, or approximately 2,500 acres of cropping land in order to launch the Company’s farmer cooperatives within the district.
