Adhering to the development path of the collaboration of industry, university and research, Yonfer has not only established long-term cooperation with more than 30 scientific research institutions including the National Agro-Tech Extension and Service Center (NATESC), China Agricultural University, China National Hybrid Rice R＆D Center, Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences, Huazhong Agricultural University, Hubei Academy of Agricultural Sciences, Shandong Agricultural University, Shanghai Research Institute of Chemical Industry and Hainan University, but also some international organizations such as the International Fertilizer Industry Association (IFA), the University of Melbourne, the University of Adelaide and world famous specific fertilizer companies such as COMPO Expert from Germany and VAN IPEREN from Netherlands, jointly committed to the technology upgrading and application of international advanced new fertilizer.
In October 2010, Yonfer signed a university enterprise cooperation agreement with China Agricultural University and jointly build a national soil test-based fertilization demonstration network to promote the R&D and popularization of formulated fertilizers and new fertilizers. In 2018, the two sides successfully applied for the Key Laboratory of Crop Specific Fertilizer of the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs, continued to promote product innovation and technological progress around the demand for green development of agriculture, and played an important role in upgrading China's fertilizer industry from extensive to precise, and truly establishing a crop demand oriented product supply system.
In October 2017, Yonfer signed a cooperation agreement with COMPO EXPORT GmbH to carry out strategic cooperation on the development of stable fertilizers. Through the superposition of technical cooperation, localized production and brand channels, the two sides have achieved deep integration, mutual benefit and win-win results, and contributed to promoting the Zero Growth of Fertilizer, improving agricultural quality and efficiency, and increasing farmers' income.
In August 2019, Yonfer and Huazhong Agricultural University signed an open subject cooperative research development agreement on Development of High Efficiency Specific Fertilizer for Rape to Meet the Demand of Restorative Planting of Rape. In 2020, the research Innovation and Application of Key Technologies for Accurate, Light and Efficient Nutrient Management of Rape won the first prize of Hubei Provincial Science and Technology Progress Award. In August 2022, the two sides launched the second phase of the project.
In 2020, Yonfer, the University of Melbourne and the University of Adelaide jointly established the MAX-IFIC International New Fertilizer Research Center, and employed internationally renowned academicians MIKE and Professor Chen Deli as R&D consultants to commit to research and innovation in the efficiency enhancement of nitrogen, phosphorus and trace elements, so as to accelerate Yonfer to reach world-class R&D standards.
In April 2022, Yonfer established a strategic partnership with Van Iperen, a world famous fertilizer enterprise based in Netherlands, launched the Zinomi compound fertilizer, and committed to building it into a high-end compound fertilizer brand with market influence.
In October 2022, Yonfer and Hainan University signed an open subject cooperative research development agreement on the Development and Demonstration of Specific Fertilizers for High Value Added Crops in Hainan, which focuses on developing the formula of specific fertilizers for high value added crops in Hainan, exploring a new model of replacing quick acting fertilizers with long-term fertilizers, and expanding the demonstration application of high value added crops in Hainan.
