ETS congratulates the Da Bei Nong Biotechnology Center of the Beijing Da Bei Nong Technology Group Co., Ltd. for successfully completing its first ETS audits. The Da Bei Nong Biotechnology Center (DBNBC) was founded in January 2011 and soon after joined ETS, declaring its strong commitment to implementing robust stewardship programs and quality management systems for its laboratory and greenhouse facilities and its confined field trial sites. DBNBC also successfully completed third-party independent audits of its overall stewardship program and incident response management procedures.

DBNBC, located in Beijing, China, is one of the first Chinese companies to successfully complete the ETS audit process. The Center’s mission is to be a leader in international agricultural science and technology enterprises while maintaining a strong commitment to the development of China's agricultural biotechnology industry. With the help of cumulative investments of 500-800 million Yuan, over the next five years DBN technology group will aim to create multiple first-class molecular biology, genetic transformation, traits analysis/integration, and molecular marker platforms. DBNBC focuses its research on staple crop (corn, rice, and soybean) precision bio-breeding and agronomic traits to improve crop and hybrid seed production, enhance crops for insect resistance, herbicide, drought and cold tolerance, as well as fertilizer use efficiency. The Chinese Golden Agricultural Seed Industry and the Center are working together to allow for the rapid industrialization of new GM crop varieties by helping form a modern seed industry development chain – from the downstream gene discovery and development all the way to the upstream crop production and utilization.

The center is led by an internationally respected team of researchers and boasts nearly 200 employees. Their facilities include a large, world-class laboratory and a sizeable greenhouse along with field trial sites across hundreds of acres.
