YaSheng Group Announces Expansion of Three Products for China's "Grain for Green Project"

REDWOOD CITY, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 04/24/06 -- The YaSheng Group (OTC: YHGG) announced today expansion of three products for China's "Grain for Green Project." Gansu Province, which is located in western China, is a main source of sandstorms in the country. The percentage of forest coverage is only 9.04%. Ecological problems arise as wind erosion, desertification, water and soil erosion, are very serious. In order to restore and improve the environment of the province, YaSheng Group, in coordination with the government, is taking advantage of the "develop-the-west" strategy. This national strategy is to plant forests and grass of 13 million acres from 2000 to 2010. By integrating the "Grain for Green Project" and accelerating the expansion of vegetation, this will create a sustainable environment and modernize the structure of agriculture as well as improve the economy for the rural areas.

The company will expand production to raise seedlings for apricots and pears in a high tech agriculture zone on 1,300 acres of land and to plant 16,466 acres of economic forests that will grow fast, high-yield products and shelter the sand blown by wind. There will be 8,233 acres planted with Tiaoshan apricots and 8,233 acres with pears. Apricots and pears are perfect for this area because of the environmental advantages, like long days, with sunshine and good soil. The fruits produced here are of top grade in appearance and quality for a targeted high-end market.

The company will also build a high tech zone to raise seedlings for the poplars on 200 acres. Also YaSheng will plant an agro base of 16,466 acres for the production of fast-growing poplars for timber and alfalfa for feed stuff. Poplars will be used also to produce a high-grade raw material for board. China is the largest timber importing country in the world. The price for the imported timber has risen from $50/m3 in 1990s to $125 /m3 at present.

The alfalfa hay meal produced in the feedstuff industry was sold at an average of about 125 dollars/ton in the international market in 2000, and the price increased to about 160 dollars/ton in 2003. It is projected that in the next ten years, stockbreeding in China will develop rapidly, seeing large increase in demand for feedstuff.

YaSheng will utilizes Yamit water-saving drip irrigation systems in developing the above projects as well as 3,293 acres of shelter shrubberies as the auxiliary project on the edge of the desert. These techniques are consistent with the overall concept of establishing a sustainable long-term revenue resource that benefits the environment and the company.

There will be 6 of YaSheng's Agricultural Entities involved with the expansion of these products stretching from the East to the West of the Hexi Corridor. There will be 3 stages of development running over 5 years that will set the foundation for the raising of seedlings into mature yielding agro products for long term development.

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository.

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world.

Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
