Huimin county in Binzhou city, east China's Shandong Province is the largest rope and net producing region in the country, accounting for over 80 percent of the country's total production of ropes and nets, and more than 90 percent of the province's.

Jinguan Netting is a company in Huimin which produces agricultural nets and nets for construction, leisure tourism, sports, gardening, and breeding.

The company sells its products to more than 68 countries and regions in the world, including the U.S., Germany and the United Arab Emirates.

The company has independently developed more than 20 kinds of products, applied for 35 invention patents and patents for utility models, and participated in the formulation of three industry standards.

"We produce new types of agricultural netting, including nets which provide an effective shield for fruit trees and crops during hailstorms," said Li Shufeng, director of the general office of Jinguan Netting.
