 Migao Corporation

ACF LogoMigao Corporation, based in China, produces specialty potash-based fertilizers for the high-value agricultural Chinese market. The Company was established in 2003 and has consistently grown in revenue and profitably.

Migao is positioned to become the leading producer of specialty potash fertilizer for the Chinese market. Migao operates fertilizer production plants in various strategic locations in China for the production and sale of specialty potash fertilizer, namely potassium nitrate and potassium sulphate, along with their respective co-products, ammonium chloride and hydrochloric acid, to the domestic, high-value agricultural markets in China. These fertilizers provide China’s cash crop growers opportunities for improving crop quality and increasing crop yield in an environmentally responsible manner.

China is the largest consumer of fertilizers in the world. Demand for improved crop yield, higher quality food, and more variety is fueling the growth of the fertilizer market in China. There is very little naturally occurring potash in China. Of the three principal fertilizer nutrients (nitrogen, phosphate, and potash), potash is the least readily available in the country. Migao's patented technology allows the Company to offer a consistent and reliable supply of high quality fertilizers which are ideal for high-value crops such as fruits and vegetables, tobacco, and cotton.
