Updated 2017-05-04 17:00:28 Xinhua

The wolfberry industry, with a total annual output value of 13 billion yuan, has become a major industry in northwest China's Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region, according to the latest data from the Ningxia Forestry Bureau.

By the end of 2016, wolfberry plantations occupied over 900,000 mu (60,000 hectares) in Ningxia, producing 93,000 tons of dried wolfberry and more than 40 deep-processed products such as beverage, seeding oil and health products.

With the brand effect, Ningxia has accelerated its wolfberry industry towards more export-oriented development.

Over 60 producers now export dried wolfberry and deep-processed products to over 50 countries and regions.

Their export volume exceeds 5,000 tons, taking up 60 percent of the nation's total, with a market share increasing by 15-20 percent annually.

Ningxia is located in the upper reaches of the Yellow River, with great sun light and heat resources ideal for growing quality wolfberry.

In recent years, Ningxia adheres to the modern agricultural development ideas and provides great support to the wolfberry industry which has been further enhanced.
