Great Yellow Earth

Yellow Earth

Our Muan Yellow Earth is weathered sediments of granite, granite gneiss and porphyry of red, yellow and yellowish red colors. Muan is composed of more than 70% (14.194ha) of yellow earth, especially by the coastline.

As recent findings scientifically proved that yellow earth is great for human body, Jeollanam Province Agricultural Technology center analyzed the substances of yellow earth and found great amount of Germanium average of 1.43㎖/㎏ (1.96~0.30).

Also, the contents of copper (2.3㎎/㎏) and zinc (19.9㎎/㎏) that cause heavy metal contamination were less than minimum requirement, so it is known as clean soil. Therefore, the productions from this land are proven to be cleaner and more environmentally-friendly than other farm products. Also, our yellow earth contains various minerals such as calcium, iron, sodium, potassium, magnesium and Vitamin (B1) to be recognized as Korea's premium yellow earth.
