Super-hybrid rice makes further progress
Yuan Longping, world famous expert on hybrid rice and member of the Chinese Academy of Engineering (CAE), was elected as fellow of U.S National Academy of Sciences (NAS).

The result of the election was unveiled on April 25, 2006, about 9:30 pm, Beijing time. Yuan Longping is the first non-American NAS member from Chinese agricultural science circle.

When asked about his idea about the honor which is said to be second only to the Nobel Prize, Yuan,"I do believe this is a grand honor in America, but for me it is more an inspiration than an honor We will continue making progress and maintain China's leading position in the field."

The 76-years old "father of hybrid rice" is ambitious and confident toward the realization of the third-phase goal of the super-hybrid rice project: 900 kg per mu (one mu equals to 0.0667 hectares) by 2008 or by 2010.

Yuan disclosed that they had materialized that in a small scale trial last year and would realize that in hectares this year.

The first-phase, 700kg per mu, has been completed and promoted in a large scale. Super-hybrid rice with 800kg per mu, as the result of the research of the second phase, was cultivated in hundreds of thousands of mu of land and will be extended to 3 million mu this year and more than 50 million mu by 2010.
