Since 2012, Chenguang Biotech Group, a company based in Handan, North China's Hebei Province, has been working with households to cultivate marigolds in Xinjiang. The business has helped lift marigold farmers out of poverty with a new contract farming mode. (Photo: Shi Jiamin; compiled by Song Kexin)
