A total of 2000 trays of the "Chaoyouqianhao" super hybrid rice seedlings, which were bred on March 20, is currently transplanting in southwest China's Yunnan Province, with a plan to plant a total of 101 mu (6.73 hectares) there.
The estimated yield of the hybrid rice is projected to each 1,200 kilograms per mu (0.07 hectares), which will set a new world record for super hybrid rice output and break the current record of 1,203.36 kilograms per mu, set by the hybrid rice variant Xiangliangyou 900.
Super hybrid rice "Chaoyouqianhao" developed by Professor Yuan Longping and his team was completed seedling brewing in April 20 in Mengzi city, Honghe Autonomous Prefecture in Yunnan Province, which is now in the process of transplanting rice seedlings, CCTV reported on Wednesday.
This year marks the fifth year that Mengzi city has been cooperating with relevant national organizations to carry out high-yield super hybrid rice research and testing.
Over the past four years, the rice output of the experimental fields has been rising steadily, according to CCTV, adding that the yield per mu has reached more than 1,100 kilograms.
