Bayer/China sign rice research agreements

Bayer CropScience and the China National Rice Research Institute (CNRRI) have signed two agreements on rice research and development. Both parties will begin collaboration in trait development and breeding. The deals build on a co-operation framework between Bayer and the Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences (CAAS), which was established in 2008 ( Agrow No 549, p 1). Under the framework, Bayer is engaged in dialogue with CAAS affiliated institutes, such as the CNRRI, on rice, cotton, canola, soybeans and safety assessment. “Rice is the most important crop in China's agricultural production. Through the signing of the agreement, we are looking forward to promoting and boosting food security in China and the world at large," says Dr Huqu Zhai, president of the CAAS.
