With the founding of several EuropeAid-founded Projects, more than 80 people were trained in Hengshui. Over 40 new factories were established in DPR Korea, Laos, Myanmar and Southeast China. New facilities are used for industrial rearing of Trichogramma ostriniae, Trichogramma chilonis etc. Those beneficials are used for biological control of grain pests like corn borer and rice moth.
