China: Why flower industry thrives in Yunnan

1 Min Read

At the Kunming International Flora Auction Trading Center (KIFA) in the Dounan Flower Market in Chenggong district, Kunming, southwest China’s Yunnan Province, hundreds of brokers quickly decide whether they should bid for flowers based on information such as varieties and grades. On average, a deal is made every four seconds.

Seven out of every 10 stems of fresh-cut flowers in the Chinese market come from the Dounan market.

Behind the thriving flower industry in Yunnan is a modern industrial chain that integrates production, sales and services.

Technologies have been leveraged to solve the challenges in seed breeding and flower cultivation. To further enhance independent research and innovation capabilities, Chenggong district has collaborated with the Yunnan Academy of Agricultural Sciences on several research projects, aiming to independently cultivate new flower varieties and accelerate the transformation of scientific and technological achievements.
