China awards pesticide creation projects

Two Chinese pesticide creation projects have been awarded a state science and technology prize, reports China’s Ministry of Science and Technology. The projects each received science and technology progress awards from China’s State Council, the country’s chief administrative authority. The first was for a project to research and develop a pesticide to prevent mosaic virus on crops and control insect vectors, jointly undertaken by (among other institutions) Guizhou University and the National Agricultural Technology Extension and Service Center. The other award was given to a project to research and develop a new agricultural-use fungicide from a natural anthraquinone compound, undertaken by (among others) Hubei Academy of Agricultural Sciences and China Agricultural University. Over 150 projects received progress awards, across all industries.
