Mr. Paik Sae-ki and Mr. Paik Chun Hyun, the family business owner & operator of the farm in Buyeo, Chungchung nam-doFor more than two decades, Mr. Paik Sae-ki and Mr. Paik Chun Hyun (photo), father and son, have been farming tomatoes. Since last winter, they had been planting “mini-top”, new jujube tomatoes seed developed by ‘The KIBAN’ and very much satisfied with the product and even replacing the conventional seeds.Mr. Paik Sae-ki, the owner of the farm said “It is very unusual and not easy to replace seed that planted for a long time, but as soon as I saw new seed from The KIBAN, I felt there must be ‘something’ with the product, and I conducted some tests on my own and the result was fascinating. I eventually changed my mind toward new seed.Also the son, Mr. Paik Cheon-hyun, who started farming after learning from his father, is now working on tomato farming separately as well.Mr. Paik, farming only tomato at a size of 17,190㎡ (5,200 pyeong), said that many farmers continue their business with tomatoes because the Sae-do region is very famous for the tomato mainland in South Korea. Due to the cultivated varieties have been also changed according to consumer demand that from recent six to seven years ago the main product is shifting from ‘Round tomatoes’ to ‘Jujube tomatoes’Mr. Paik has been making double crop for tomato, however he recently has experienced some difficulties due to the high temperature of global warming, but the community and Mr. Paik are working tighter for solving various problems through know-how and experience of precious knowledge gained through the exchange of information from The KIBAN company and Mr. Lee Hang gu, the CEO of Chungdae Pesticide Co., Ltd., in Sedo Province.“Jujube tomatoes”,New Seed product, from The KIBAN, co. ltd.Recognized as 「A leading farmhouse」 in Sae-do, Kangkyung, Chungchung nam-do"Twenty years ago, there was no farming house frame steel pipe, so we made it with bamboo tree and cover it with rice straw to maintain warm temperature."In Sae-do region, according to Mr. Lee Hang-gu, CEO of Chungdae Pesticide Co., Ltd., Mr. Paik’s farm considered to be a leading tomato farm with low failure rate in terms of quantity, quality, taste, price and etc., it certainly belongs to the leading axis in all aspects.Since Mr. Paik was a child, after school, he threw a backpack and directly went to his father's Tomato House. He did not even have any power switch, thus he developed & processed everything manually. He now controls the temperature automatically and makes watering facilities and management technology much easier. If you are willing to learn about farming, you can say that it is possible to do a lot of new farming with the help of agricultural company like ‘The KIBAN’.GAP certified tomato box, the name of his father, Paik se-Ki representative is printed“Now I can see how much you are good at farming by just looking” said Mr. Paik, stated that currently around two hundred households in the Sae-do area are working on tomato farmingFarming houses that were lost during the 「4 major rivers renovation project」(Nat’l project) were more than 25%, and they were rewarded after the project and joined Sae-do area and started more tomato farms.Sae-do area, is a ‘cross section’ where the Iksan border, Jeonbuk and Nonsan are gathered together, considered to be suitable region for agriculture due to moderate climate. Also location is attracted to the surrounding area as a center. In the meantime, technically, ‘agricultural know-how’ is concentrated, and there are many excellent farmers.Mr. Paik said, "We have been doing a lot of assistive projects in the country nowadays, and now our facilities are being modernized, so we feel very much confident that quality is improved in other regions as well." "We will improve the quality competitiveness of Sae-do region tomatoes and we are paying more attention to new varieties of seeds.”‘Mini Top’, the product name of Jujube tomato seed, from ‘The KIBAN’There are too many kinds of tomato seeds and consumers are looking for higher quality more and more, so we must study everyday cultivation methods and diseases in all cases."It is very hard to find a private farmhouse that has received GAP certification like Mr. Paik’s farming house said Kim Yi-koo, the head officer of the Chung-cheong branch of The KIBAN co ltd. "In case of developing a new variety of crops, I think these farmers(Mr. Paik’s) could be good example."Mr. Paik Chun-hyun, representative of the farm said, "Thanks to my father, I was able to catch up to some extent," but "Now I can secure the market even if there is no stable market price(even if the market price fluctuates), I will study more the seeds from ‘The KIBAN’ company and help them to be rooted well in Sae-do region & community.” and he showed a great smile.Lee Tae-ho reporter, firstname.lastname@example.org<Copyright © Monthly gardening, reprint and redistribution prohibited>
‘The KIBAN’, pioneering new ways of global seed in...
As the path NOROO has walked, expanding its engagement on global agriculture business.A core role of a company is to grow businesses, pursuing profits, creating value, and fulfilling their social responsibilities.Global seed industry is growing constantly as the food security industry which protects national sovereignty assumes full responsibility for the precious food for the future generation. As for Korea's future agriculture, there is a special company which has ambitious plans to secure a bridgehead in the global seed market with strategic investment and capability on continuous development to lead global seed industry.A bird’s eye view of ‘The KIBAN’ facilitySince 1945, NOROO group had been making sustainable growth in fine chemicals area, and become a comprehensive chemical company based on its business philosophy of "For My homeland “ and “Blazing a new trail into the future ", the founding spirit of the group. ‘The KIBAN’ co. ltd is a newly established company, spurring on the leap forward to grow into a global leading company in seed industry. Founded in July 2015 under NOROO Group to engage the seed business and enrich the lives of its descendants by making a new path to the global seed market. The KIBAN is targeting to grow with farmers and make contribution to the development of global seed industry. .The name 'THE' from the company KIBAN symbolizes 'unique and great' and 'KIBAN' means 'foundation' in Korean language.Anseong R&D Park, the test plot will continue to expandtoward the left ginseng fieldTherefore, this is the center of researching and developing seeds to make sustainable growth to become a global vegetable specialty enterprise.Anseong complex, which continues to expand the breeding research facility to around size of 171,900㎡(52,000 pyeong) site, the research engineers are concentrating on the research in the laboratory and the breeding experiment camp.As in the chemical industry, the seed industry has a high entry barriers in the global market as well. In order to go overcome this barrier, ‘The KIBAN’ must constantly strive for global competitiveness through aggressive R & D investment.‘The KIBAN’ House Breeders TestamentSowing the seedsPlanting seeds in house facilityIn this issue, we have interviewed Mr. Won Dong-chan Won, the leader of KRD headquarters, who is in charge of the core project of the research complex. The interview is mainly about ‘The KIBAN’ R&D status and plans.Anseong-si Samjak-myeon has facility of KOC, KRD and potential research siteEntry to the ‘The KIBAN’ Breeding CenterMr. Won Dong-chan, the head of KRD headquarters, explains the Anseong research complex and R & D investment PlansMr. Won Dong-chan said, "The KIBAN Anseong Research Complex is composed of KOC, Seed Treatment Facility, Quality Inspection, Seed Storage area, KRD with Biotechnology Research, Breeding Research Center and ‘ONE-STOP seed development system’ that links all tasks such as breeding, biotechnology, pathology, quality inspection, and quality control. "“We have been able to substitute imported seeds from overseas and supply our new domestic seeds to farmers. We will help reducing the foreign currency outflow in Korea by producing high-quality substitutional seeds and continue to invest in the future. "AI(Artificial intelligence) environment-friendly control system to observe the growth of various seeds.Clean automatic mechanization system of the production facility ‘The KIBAN’ high quality ‘honey melon seeds’(product name : ‘Barenggul Melon’) are being released"The Anseong Biotechnology Center is ready to provide quantitative and qualitative technological growth through innovative research. We make innovation for future seed industry and enhance competitiveness in order to capture all the basic technologies in the vegetable seed market." Mr. Won also said, "The cutting-edge biotechnology research facility means establishing the basis for the development of new genetic resources, molecular breeding and marker analysis in order to enhance the importance of future food and the competitiveness of vegetable seeds. "We will continue to invest on R & D that matches the global market from the beginning, and we will have a quality management system, advanced research system and competitive edge as a global company in agriculture in all aspects.In addition, he added, "We will concentrate our efforts on strengthening our competitiveness. We will also invest in food seed development with vegetable seeds to make agriculture a future growth engine."More than anything else, the background that ‘The KIBAN’ was able to overcome trial and error and grow at high speed in the first three years is ‘Human Resources’. ‘The KIBAN’ also secured core research engineers in all over Korea, which made it possible to launch competitive varieties in overseas markets in a short period of time.In addition to that, The KIBAN successfully secured core talent which is Mr. Choi kyu sul has been appointed as CEO of the company and based on his experience in agriculture for a long time, he played a key role in the preliminary analysis of domestic and overseas agronomic markets for the past 10 years. He successfully set the establishment of competitive core crops and target markets.Mr. Paik Hayng-gu, the chief research engineer of R&D center of breeding, is introducing more advantages of the new varieties of The KIBAN pepperGlobal seed market outlook, becoming more “The Winner-Take-All” systemPepper seeds from The KIBAN are much more resistant to anthrax, TSWV plague, and other viruses. Almost all varieties & new product roadmap of seeds will be available starting from next year.Recently, “The Winner-Take-All“tendency has been strengthened through mergers & acqusition among multinational corporations. “the FEAR” that only the first breed company can survive in the future is on the rise.In addition, The KIBAN is focusing on meeting the needs of consumers through developing customized varieties that our customers desire, while expanding the introduction of innovative biotechnology to cope with the challenge of survival in the global market.Seed development is a type of business that requires massive budget and efforts for a long period of time. In the long term, rather than the short term, we believe that government subsidy is required in order to boost up the industry. For instance, Korean government's second GSP project support could be an excellent example that at the end, Korean company enhanced tremendous competitiveness.Mr. Won added "The government investment budget must be determined by ing competitive companies rather than just “Giving – away” multi-funded investments to any company. Also the basic research should be carried out by universities and national research institutes, transferring technology to the private seed industry. As for domestic enterprises, it is very limited to make huge investment on new technology. Therefore, as a part of enhancing national domestic enterprises competitiveness, Government must lead companies and make the large investment."Lee Tae-ho reporter, email@example.com<Copyright © ‘Monthly gardening’, reprint and redistribution prohibited>
