Xueshi Zhang, 29, came from China to Wageningen to get a Master in Organic Agriculture. He graduated in 2009.
He now works for Koppert, a company that specialises in organic crop protection. Within this company, he works together with a team to introduce new organic crop protection methods in Chinese agriculture, where many harmful artificial products are still used. Xueshi and his colleagues would like to introduce more Dutch organic crop protection products to combat plagues and diseases, and help Chinese crop production become more environmentally friendly and sustainable. Xueshi is very happy with his job at Koppert:
“I do not only have a lot of liberty at Koppert, I also get to work on sustainable food safety with an enthusiastic team. We work with a love for nature and this turns out to be productive, too!”
