What kind of vegetables are expected to be exported in a large quantity and also have a 'longevity code'?
The answer may be found in Xintian County, Yongzhou City, Hunan Province, known as the “Hometown of Natural Selenium-Rich Agricultural Products in China”.
Xintian's soil area has a selenium content of 60.18%, but the content of selenium is only one part per 100 million in the earth's crust.
Selenium, as one of the essential trance elements for the human body, plays an important role in improving human immunity, anti-cancer, anti-oxidation, and delaying aging.
Relying on the precious selenium-rich land resource, Xintian’s selenium cabbage, selenium-rich fungus and other products have been developed on a large-scale and branded manner, forming the signature feature of the local vegetable industry.
Dongsheng Farm in Xintian County, is a high-quality agricultural and sideline product supply base in Hunan Province and the “vegetable basket” of the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area. “It is shipped at night and delivered in the next morning”, so Hong Kong citizens can taste delicious and nutritious vegetable products the next day.
Nowadays, Xintian selenium-rich vegetables are exported to North America, Europe, Africa, Southeast Asia and many other countries, allowing “Xintian cabbage” to go out of Hunan, to the whole country, and “fly” to the world.
