Vietnam:Rice strain tolerant to drought newly created
Ha Noi, A high yield and resistance to insects and disease are strong charcteristics of the new rice strain DR3 launched recently by the Biotechnology Institute under the National Technology and Natural Science Centre.
Satisfactory results were obtained by the institute in carrying out a pilot project to grow DR3 rice strain in Ha Noi, central Thanh Hoa province and 8 northern provinces including Ninh Binh, Bac Giang, Phu Tho, Vinh Phuc, Tuyen Quang, Thai Nguyen, Son La and Cao Bang over the past six years.
The better quality rice strain, giving an average yield of 4-6 tonnes per hectare, is also tolerant to drought and can be grown in up-land exhausted fields.
The new strain is being widely grown in northern provinces such as Thai Nguyen, Phu Tho and Bac Giang in the 2003 rice crop.
