Yunnan Industrial Investment Group has been making efforts to promote the marigold growth industry in Southwest China's Yunnan in recent years as a contribution to rural vitalization.
The planting area of the marigolds has been continuously increasing in the past few years and marigold planting has become a key industry in affected area. Development of the industry also promotes the local agricultural industrial structure adjustment and increases the income of local farmers.

It also benefits social and ecological development.
Over the past nearly 20 years, Yunnan Industrial Investment Group has improved the province's market share of exported marigold extractions to 42 percent relying on Yunnan's natural resource advantages.
