The following discussion and analysis of our financial condition and results of operations are based upon our condensed consolidated financial statements and the notes thereto included elsewhere in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, which have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in
the United States. The preparation of such financial statements requires us to make estimates and judgments that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenues, and expenses. On an ongoing basis, we evaluate these estimates, including those related to useful lives of real estate assets, bad debts, impairment, contingencies and litigation. We base our estimates on historical experience and on various other assumptions that are believed to be reasonable under the circumstances, the results of which form the basis for making judgments about the carrying values of assets and liabilities that are not readily apparent from other sources. There can be no assurance that actual results will not differ from those estimates.
Application of critical accounting policies
In preparing our financial statements, we are required to formulate working policies regarding the valuation of our assets and liabilities and to develop estimates of these values. In our preparation of financial statements for the three and six months ended

$ (873,810 ) $ (760,787 ) $ 113,02315 % 1 All of the Company's operations are currently carried out by its subsidiary, Yuxinqi. Yuxinqi is a marketing enterprise with a focus on milled rice and other agricultural products. Incorporated on February 5, 2018, with a short operating history, Yuxinqi's sales are erratic, since a stable customer base has not been established yet. Sales by Yuxinqi during the three months ended September 30, 2021were 55% greater than during the three months ended September 30, 2020. The increase in revenue occurred primarily because our principal customer, Jiufu Zhenyuan, increased its orders. However, sales by Yuxinqi during the six months ended September 30, 2021were lower than during the six months ended September 30, 2020. The decrease in revenue occurred primarily because our principal customers, such as Huiye and Shouhang Commerce, reduced their orders. For the periods ended September 30, 2021and 2020, the cost of sales of $31,575and $28,441for the three months, and $52,255and $67,790for the six months, respectively, was attributable to the sales of milled rice and other foodstuffs. Those operations yielded a gross profit for the three months periods of $16,380and $2,547with a gross margin of 34.2% and 8.2%, and a gross profit for the six months periods of $25,791and $ 37,726with a gross margin of 33.0% and 31.9%, respectively. The increase in gross margin during the three months ended September 30, 2021, compared to the same period of the previous year was primarily attributable to changes in customers and the changes in products. To focus on the sale of value-added processed products, the Company's subsidiary, Tianci Liangtian, completed the spin-off of its ownership interest in Lvxin on April 30, 2020. During the three months ended September 30, 2020, the Company incurred $713,722of investment loss due to the divestment of Lvxin. In April 2021, in order to boost sales, the Company granted a total of 345,000 fully vested shares with a fair value on the grant date of $2.20per share to 25 individuals for sales promotion services. As a result, $759,000in compensation expense was recognized as advertising and promotion expenses for the three and six months ended September 30, 2021. Therefore, for the periods ended September 30, 2021and 2020, the Company incurred operating expenses total $114,242and $18,730during the three months ended September 30, 2021and 2020, and $914,365and $80,584during the six months ended September 30, 2021and 2020, respectively. The components of operating expenses were: Three Months Ended Six Months Ended Sept. 30 Sept. 30 2021 2020 2021 2020 Salaries and benefits $ 82,268 $ 22,356 $ 115,282 $ 46,636Office Expense 16,977 15,812 31,279 20,055 Rentals and leases 6,190 9,882 12,392 19,534 Professional fees 18,310 50,788 36,420 67,331 Exchange (gain) loss (12,553 ) (81,254 ) (45,898 ) (81,254 )

This represented the increase in the USD value of Tianci's debt to Organic Agriculturalas a result of the decline in the USD to CNY exchange rate from 6.5565 to 6.4580. The Company's continuing operations produced a net loss of $97,873and $15,151for the three months ended September 30, 2021and 2020, and $888,572and $47,444for the six months ended September 30, 2021and 2020, respectively.

Trends, events and uncertainties
The Company intends to expand its product offerings to include value-added products, both products based on rice and products based on other food stuffs, such as organic red beans and millet. Our marketing personnel will endeavor to expand awareness of our brand, open new marketing channels, and educate the nation about the health benefits of selenium-enriched rice. In this manner, the Company hopes to increase sales to support the future operations and development of the Company. There is no guarantee that the Company's new strategy will
be successful. On
November 6, 2020 Organic Agriculturalentered into a Cooperation Agreement with Unbounded IOT Block Chain Limited("Unbounded"), an entity with offices in XiamenCity, Fujian Province. The purpose of the Cooperation Agreement was to promote the use of blockchain technology in agriculture, specifically the development of tracing systems for agricultural products, the development of a blockchain-based shopping mall for agricultural products, and related improvements to the agricultural sector of the economy. To accomplish those purposes, Tianci Wanguan (Xiamen) Digital Technology Co., Ltd.was incorporated in Xiamen, Chinaon November 5, 2020. Tianci Wanguan is 51% owned by Organic Agricultural HK and 49% owned by Chen Zewu for the behalf of Unbounded. Each party committed to provide capital resources to Tianci Wanguan in proportion to its ownership percentage. On July 19, 2021the parties executed a supplement to the Cooperation Agreement. The Supplementary Agreement sets forth performance criteria for Unbounded's management of Tianci Wanguan: specifically, that within 12 months after the shares mentioned below are issued to Unbounded, Tianci Wanguan must have made a profit of five million Renminbi from the business described in the Cooperation Agreement or any other business approved by Organic Agricultural. Any profits generated by Tianci Wanguan will be held for use by that company. The Supplementary Agreement further provides that, after implementing a 5.16 -for-1 stock split contemplated by the Cooperation Agreement and the supplement, Organic Agriculturalwill issue 10 million shares of its common stock to Unbounded. The certificate for the shares will be held by Chen Zewu, who will vote the shares in accordance with the direction he receives from Hao Shuping, a member of the Organic Agricultural Board of Directors. If Unbounded fails to satisfy the criteria described above, the 10 million shares must be returned to Organic Agricultural. If Unbounded does satisfy the criteria, then it will have unrestricted ownership of the 10 million shares, and Organic Agriculturalwill issue an additional 10 million shares to Unbounded. 3
The COVID-19 outbreak has had a significant adverse impact and created many uncertainties related to our business, and we expect that it will continue to do so. The Company is experiencing challenges in sales and which has increased the Company's financial uncertainty. Our future business outlook and expectations are very uncertain due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and is very difficult to quantify. It is difficult to assess or predict the impact of this unprecedented event on our business, financial results or financial condition. Factors that will impact the extent to which the COVID-19 pandemic affects our business, financial results and financial condition include: the duration, spread and severity of the pandemic; the actions taken to contain the virus or treat its impact, including government actions to mitigate the economic impact of the pandemic; and how quickly and to what extent normal economic and operating conditions can resume, including whether any future outbreaks interrupt the economic recovery. The
U.S.government, including the SEC, has made statements and taken actions that have led to changes in relations between the U.S.and China, and will impact companies with connections to the United Statesor China. Those actions by the U.S.government included imposing several rounds of tariffs affecting certain products manufactured in Chinaand imposing sanctions and restrictions in relation to China. Actions by the SECincluded issuing statements indicating that it would make enhanced review of companies with significant China-based operations. It is unknown whether and to what extent new legislation, executive orders, tariffs, laws or regulations will be adopted, or the effect that any such actions would have on companies with significant connections to the U.S.or to China, our industry or on us. Any unfavorable government policies on cross-border relations, including increased scrutiny on companies with significant China-based operations, capital controls or tariffs, may affect our ability to raise capital and the market price of our shares. If any new legislation, executive orders, tariffs, laws and/or regulations are implemented, if existing trade agreements are renegotiated or if the U.S.or Chinese governments take retaliatory actions due to the recent U.S.- Chinatensions, such changes could have an adverse effect on our business, financial condition and results of operations, our ability to raise capital and the market price of our shares. Changes in United Statesand Chinarelations and/or regulations may adversely impact our business, our operating results, our ability to raise capital and the market price of our shares.
Other than the factors listed above, we are not aware of any trends, events or uncertainties that have had or reasonably expected to have a material impact on our net sales or our revenues or revenues from continuing operations.
Off-balance sheet provisions
We do not currently have any off-balance sheet arrangements that have or are reasonably likely to have a current or future effect on our financial condition or results of operations.
Recent accounting positions
New accounting rules and disclosure requirements can have a significant impact on the comparability of our financial statements. Please refer to note 2 of our condensed consolidated financial statements included in this quarterly report.
There has been no recent accounting pronouncement that we believe would materially affect the financial condition or results of operations of the Company.
