ieties introduced to the Philippines through the Green Super Rice project are capable of thriving in harsh environments and maintaining steady yields.
“After Typhoon Haiyan swept through Leyte Island in the central Phi
lippines in November 2013, we found that the Green Super Rice variety was one of the few that w
as still growing when submerged in saline water,” he said. “Local farmers were elated and regained hope.”
In West Africa, six Green Super Rice varieties with high-yield potential and strong tolerance to drought, salinity and iron to
xicity have been developed, and about 14.5 metric tons of such seeds were distributed to local rice breeders, ac
cording to Baboucarr Manneh, a researcher with the African Rice Center in Cote d’Ivoire.
“Moreover, about 500 scientists, technicians and farmers hav
e been trained in fields such as breeding, seed production and crop management th
rough the project. The training helps increase their capability and achieve sustainable growth in the future,” he said.
