Chinese agricultural technology to help boost Pakistan’s rice

The 24-year-old agrarian, who is working as a research manager at a rice farmhouse in Punjab province, is learning how to double the crop fabrication by using the Chinese hybrid rice technology. “On average we have cultivated more than 4 tons per acre rice using the hybrid technology while the traditional species yield just 2 tons per acre,” said Wasim, a graduate of agronomy from the Agriculture University of Faisalabad. He said that they sow around 15,000 varieties of rice for research purpose whose data was used to select the best five types for the national trial, supervised by the Federal Seed Certification and Registration Department.  Wasim is quite hopeful that three varieties would be approved this year. “One has already been allowed to market earlier this year.”
