Ethiopia: Centre Develops High-Yield Wheat, Barely, Rice Varieties
The Adet Agricultural Research Centre said that it has developed five disease resistant and high-yield wheat, barely and rice species.

Centre Manager Dr Yihenew Gebre-Selassie, told WIC that the new crop species released recently by the Ethiopian Seeds Certification Committee yield from four to 15 quintals of additional produce per hectare.

Fogera, Metema and Jawi areas of the Amhara State are suitable for these rice varieties, the manager said, adding that promotion and distribution of the seed will be undertaken beginning next meher season.

The newly released disease-resistant wheat species can reportedly give 49 quintals per hectare, an increase of nine quintals per hectare as compared to the previous variety.

The barely variety could yield over 31 quintals per hectare, Dr Yihenew stated. The newly developed rice variety can also yield from 28 to 38 quintals per hectare, he added.
