Pak, Chinese scientists to develop hybrid rice
ISLAMABAD: Chairman, Pakistan Agricultural Research Council (PARC) has underlined the need for a fast-track approach between Pakistani and Chinese scientists working on developing high yield hybrid rice.

He was talking to a four-member delegation of Chinese agricultural scientists that called on him here Tuesday.

The delegation, currently on a visit to Pakistan, is led by Dr. Chang-xiang Mao, Chief of the International Project Office, Guangxi Academy of Agricultural Sciences (GXAAS).

Dr. Tusneem, appreciating the efforts and achievements of the Chinese scientists said China was pioneer in hybrid rice that gives high yield with equally better quality.

He recalled that way back in 1986 Pakistani scientists started developing hybrid rice with Chinese technology but no tangible results have been produced.

Chairman PARC was of the view that it was time that the scientists of both the countries focused on other value added crops vis-vis rice through more collaboration and joint ventures.

Chinese delegation offered long-term cooperation between GXAAS and PARC in developing hybrid and super hybrid rice in Pakistan, based on resource-sharing, exchange of expertise and training of scientists. It is noted that the Chinese delegation is visiting Pakistan under the 16th protocol.

The purpose of the visit is to exchange information regarding hybrid rice, R&D and to develop long term collaboration between China and Pakistan for the development of good grain quality hybrids to meet the requirement of South Asian and Middle Eastern markets.

PARC being the apex research body of the country would coordinate between GXAAS and other Pakistani research organizations.

During the meeting Muhammad Hashim Leghari, Chief Scientific Officer Crop Sciences; Dr. Muhammad Salim, National Coordinator Rice (NARC) and Dr. Fida M. Abbasi, PSO Rice, NARC were also present. app
