About GDRRI

 

 

    The Rice Research Institute of Guangdong Academy of Agricultural Sciences (GDRRI), formerly known as Rice Experimental Farm of Sun Yat-sen University, was founded by Professor Ding Ying, the famous agriculturalist in 1930. GDRRI is a non-profit research institution and Guangzhou Sub-center of National Rice Improvement Center, focusing on research, extension & transformation of achievements and technical services including rice germplasm resources, breeding, biotechnology, cultivation and physiological ecology. Currently there are 190 staffs including 105 researchers, 54 experts with senior professional titles and 20 doctors. GDRRI is equipped with National Germplasm Guangzhou Wild Rice Nursery, Guangdong Rice Germplasm Resources Bank, Guangdong Key Laboratory of New Technology in Rice Breeding and Guangdong Excellent Hybrid Rice Seed Production Base and is one of the units of Guangdong Scientific Observation & Experiment Station for Crop Genetic Resources & Germplasm Innovation of China’s Ministry of Agriculture.

    GDRRI dares to keep foraging ahead and works hard to create the brilliant achievements. In the 1950s-1960s, the research team led by Researcher Huang Yaoxiang, the Academician of Chinese Academy of Engineering, bred the first artificial sexual hybrid semidwarf rice variety “Square Dwarf” and applied a number of dwarf seeds to production in large areas to greatly improve the rice yield. It is a great breakthrough in the history of rice breeding. The rice breeding for dwarfness is reputed as the “First Green Revolution”. Our institute is the birthplace of rice breeding for dwarfness. In the 1980s, we started the research on excellent breeding and bred a number of excellent high-yield rice with good comprehensive characters including Qishanzhan, Yuexiangzhan, Fengbazhan, Peizashuangqi and Tianyou 998, which were approved and rapidly applied so that Guangdong’s excellent rice became the mainstream in planting and the excellent breeding was in the forefront of China. In 1996, Academician HuangYaoxiang proposed China’s Ministry of Agriculture to carry out the research of super regular rice, starting the super rice breeding in China. GDRRI became one of the initiators for super rice breeding and has bred 8 types of super rice such as Guinongzhan, Hemeizhan, Tianyou 998 and Wuyou 308, which were approved by the Ministry of Agriculture, accounting for 10% of China’s super rice varieties. To September 2011, GDRRI has achieved 210 awards including 14 state-level ones, 17 authorized patents and 16 types of new plant variety rights and bred 274 varieties that passed the provincial-level or higher approval including 35 by state-level approval. Our institute adheres to equal attention to technology innovation and extension & transformation of achievements. Our variety and technology coverage accounts for over 75% of the total rice growing area all over Guangdong and the transformation rate of achievements reaches over 90%. The varieties with cumulative production above 10 million mu reached 25. GDRRI makes great contributions to rice technology progress, production development and grain safety guarantee and stands at the leading edge of the agricultural research institutions in China in terms of comprehensive strength of scientific research. It ranked fifth among the agricultural research institutions in China in the evaluation of comprehensive capacity in scientific research during the “10th Five-Year Plan”.

    Looking forward to the future, GDRRI will be committed to provide technological support to guarantee grain safety and serve agriculture, rural areas and farmers, make efforts to carry out the basic applied research, applied research and integrated innovative research centering on rice technology and production hotspots & difficulties, further promote the close combination of technology innovation, transformation of achievements and extension services and make new contributions to boosting rice technology progress and guaranteeing grain safety.
