Zhonglian Harvest helps me harvest peanuts in Africa

After more than 20 days of waiting, Jonah Marier, a peanut trader in Sudan, finally received the first batch of Zhonglian self-propelled peanut picking and harvesting machines produced by Zhonglian in Zhengzhou, China at the port. After the peanut operation season in Sudan, I specially sent a thank you email: "My dear Chinese friends, thank you for your high-quality products and help. I look forward to closer cooperation between us in the future."

Jonah Marier's homeland is Sudan, which is thousands of miles away from us. It is the third largest country in Africa and the 15th largest country in the world. Although it has rich minerals, tourism and agricultural resources, it is one of the least developed countries in the world announced by the United Nations. Its agriculture is the main pillar of the economy, and 80% of the country's population is engaged in agricultural production. Sudan's peanut production ranks third in the world, and its export is also at the forefront of the world. China is the first source of its peanut imports, but its domestic planting and harvesting are still mainly done manually, and the level of mechanization is low.


Sudan has introduced many Chinese agricultural planting technologies

Jonah Marier purchased peanuts in Africa for initial processing and then exported them to China. In addition to the peanut trade with Chinese partners, Jonah Marier often communicates with partners the latest peanut planting technology and peanut machinery products in China. In an exchange in 2021, Chinese partners talked about the mechanization of Chinese peanuts from sowing, harvesting, and processing, and suggested that Jonah Marier could try it in Sudan.
Jonah Marier knows that some peanut harvesters in foreign countries are efficient but not cheap, which is unbearable for Sudan with an annual per capita income of less than 10,000 yuan. But Jonah Marier was very moved after seeing the video of peanut harvesting produced in China posted by a friend. China subtly divides the peanut harvesting process into two parts: fruit picking and picking. This not only makes it more efficient, but also greatly reduces the purchase price.
Jonah Marier, who saw the business opportunity, asked his Chinese friends to help contact the peanut picker manufacturer. After comparing several domestic peanut picker brands and products, the Chinese partner chose Zhonglian Harvest 4HJL-2.5 Self-propelled Peanut Picker and Harvester as the main recommended product. The reasons for the recommendation are very straightforward: first, searching for articles and videos about the peanut picker on the Internet mainly introduces Zhonglian Harvest. It is understood that its product market share is nearly half, which is the same as shopping online, with many praise and great sales. The chance of favor is greater. Second, because of Sudan's own planting level, there is a large technical improvement requirement for the machine. At that time, Zhengzhou Zhonglian quickly proposed a solution.

Next, we faced a new problem: "The payment for the first order is not a small amount for Jonah Marier, so I don't feel relieved if I can't make an on-site inspection." However, due to the new crown epidemic in Zhengzhou at that time, Jonah Marier and his Chinese friends came to Zhengzhou for inspection. Not feasible. In order to dispel Jonah Marie's concerns, Zhengzhou Zhonglian staff held a "cloud live broadcast" for Jonah Marie and his Chinese friends, taking them "on the cloud" to experience the R&D and production process of Zhengzhou Zhonglian, and shared Zhengzhou Zhonglian's R&D and production process. The story of Zhonglian focusing on harvesting machinery for more than 30 years.

The thoughtful communication again and again allowed Jonah Marie to quickly finalize the order and pay the deposit. In the subsequent production process, the staff of Zhengzhou Zhonglian communicated with Jonah Marie by email and video on the progress of the order many times, and finally delivered the order before the New Year and caught up with the Sudanese peanut harvesting season.
According to the follow-up communication with Jonah Marie, the local trial of Zhonglian's peanut machine has achieved more than expected success, which not only helped Jonah Marie to expand the scale of trade, but also added a new path to increase revenue. The successful trial of Zhonglian's peanut machine in the local area has also attracted more attention and inquiries from Sudanese agricultural planting companies.
Extended reading: Zhengzhou Zhonglian, as an enterprise that has been focusing on the research and development, manufacturing and sales of harvesters for 30 years, has provided more than 200,000 harvester equipment for agriculture. The representative products are the Xinjiang series harvesters that are continuously updated and iterative. , from Xinjiang-2 to today's Zhonglian Harvest Xinjiang-9L; a mid-prototype model that has been continuously improved around the corn industry; and a phenomenon-level product with a national market share of 45% and 90% in some markets - Zhonglian is harvested from Take the peanut harvester, in 2022, Zhonglian Harvest 2022 4HZJ-2500A self-propelled peanut harvester will be upgraded on the basis of the 2021 model, including 21 details such as comfort, maneuverability and practicality.
