China Green Agriculture, Inc. (NYSE Amex: CGA; "China Green Agriculture" or "the Company"), a leading producer and distributor of humic acid ("HA") based compound fertilizer through its wholly owned subsidiary, Shaanxi TechTeam Jinong Humic Acid Product Co., Ltd., today announced that it launched three new HA based fertilizer products in the quarter ended September 30, 2009.
China Green Agriculture currently offers 137 different HA based compound fertilizers, which are distributed via the Company’s 537 individual distributors covering 21 provinces, 4 autonomous regions and 3 municipal cities in China. Its fertilizer products are certified by the Chinese government as "Green Food Production Materials".
The following is a brief description of the Company’s three new products:
Jinong Humic Acid Boron -- a highly concentrated powder based fertilizer specifically developed to prevent Boron deficiency, which is a disorder affecting plants growing in deficient soils and is often associated with areas of high rainfall and leached soils. It promotes fullness of the fruits and stimulates more buds in the flowering stage.
Jinong Hyperkalemic Fertilization -- a highly concentrated powder based fertilizer that can be used as a substitute for soil top-dressing after dilution and is quickly absorbed by all crops. It improves the immune system and development of the plant and stimulates more buds in the flowering stage while promoting fullness of the fruits.
Jinong Solid Organic Fertilizer -- rich in humic acid and amino acid, this time-released granular fertilizer prevents adverse affects caused by disease, drought and flood. It promotes seedling growth and enhances the retention of water and nutrients while increasing plant productivity and crop yields.
"Our goal is to continue to introduce new products to the market quickly through our rapid and efficient R&D processes," said Mr. Tao Li, the Company’s chairman and CEO. "Our recently announced plans to build an additional 12 new greenhouses over an area of approximately 88 acres will further increase the company’s ability to develop both liquid and powder fertilizer products as well as humic acid based derivatives such as pesticides and herbicides. We are confident that the growing demand for our green fertilizer products coupled with our expanding R&D platform will enable us to deliver incremental revenue and earnings growth, while expanding both gross and operating margins."

Additionally, the Company announced that that it has signed agreements with 7 new distributors throughout the quarter ending September 30, 2009.
