New breeding technology helps China store rice longer
China has developed a new genetic breeding technology which scientists claim will greatly help to create rice that can be stored longer and will not go moldy too quickly.
The new rice variety created with the new breeding technology can achieve a sprouting rate of 98.5 percent after 42 months of storage while the rate of ordinary rice never passes 50 percent, scientists said.
Three types of lipoxidase, called lox, are the major causes of mildew and moths in rice, said Dr. Wu Yuejin, head of a research team that discovered the rice "longevity" gene.
Wu said a larger scale of planting of the new rice variety and other varieties are needed to put the research results into production.
The new rice variety was developed through ion beam mutagenesis by scientists from three research institutes under the Anhui Provincial Academy of Agricultural Sciences and the Chinese Academy of Sciences.
At present, China mainly depends on building new rice storage facilities and changing the temperature and humidity inside storage buildings to keep healthy its great number of rice, but usually at a great cost of money.
"It is effective and economical to stop the degeneration of rice via changing its genes," Wu said.
China produces some 166 million tons of rice every year on average, accounting for 36.9 percent of the world's total annual output.
