“Contract spirit”is the spiritual conviction of KingAgroot;
“Independent thinking” is the guiding concept of KingAgroot. We don’t follow blindly, we don’t go with the stream, we keep independent, willing to be the only “purple cow” in a group of spotted cows.
“Innovation driving” is the sole merit of KingAgroot. When it becomes a money maker rather than provider of innovative products and solutions, the existence is no longer valuable.
“Value creating” is the basic adherence of KingAgroot. The existing value of a company lies in not only making profits but also providing better services for the society with lower costs and higher efficiency, so as to change the world as expected.
KingAgroot launched the “Weeding Scientist” activity to improve people’s awareness of weeds, understanding of weed resistance and knowing of how to use the most scientific approach to control resistant weeds so as to delay resistance development.
KingAgroot organized different forms of trainings for herbicide marketing channels and growers on weeds, herbicides, weed resistance, herbicide application techniques, etc., helping end practitioners and professional growers to become “Weeding Scientists”.
KingAgroot launched the “Weeding Scientist WeChat Column” in its WeChat official account, publishing “Weeding Scientist” technical manuscripts for everyone’s reference and communication. Currently we have published many popular articles, such as “What you should pay attention to as for weed control for wheat in spring”,“ how to recognize different weeds in wheat and corn”, etc.
