Recently, from the Central African countries Burundi came the good news: China’s aid Burundi third senior agricultural expert group demonstration Tian Feng harvest, up to 924 kilograms per mu, the average yield of 725.3 kilograms per mu, refresh the high yield of rice in Africa record.
Under the framework of the China-Africa Cooperation Forum, China and Africa are carrying out a series of pragmatic and efficient agricultural cooperation. Chinese agricultural experts and African farmers have changed the local agricultural production.
Local farmers say that China’s “out of poverty” gives them new hope of getting rich.
1129998871111219982387 The Great Lakes region is a traditional agricultural area in eastern Africa.
It is located on the plateau, with good climatic conditions and the most densely populated area in Africa.
However, food issues have been a difficult constraint to local development.
Recently, China’s third group of high-level agricultural experts in Burundi has been harvested in the rice demonstration field of InBev plain in Bubanza province, Burundi.
Among the four rice varieties introduced, the yield of “Y Liangyou 900” was 924 kg, and the average yield per all of the cultivars was 725.3 kg, which was more than 3 times of the local average yield. Not only did the high yield record of Burundi,
Also set a record of high yield of African rice.

The average yield per local paddy field in Burundi is 200-250 kilograms.
At the beginning of the demonstration field project, farmers are hesitant to try Chinese rice.
In order to mobilize the enthusiasm of farmers, Chinese agricultural experts promised to increase rice yield to 350 kg or more, provided that the technical requirements in accordance with the experts.
In order to dispel the concerns of farmers, the Chinese agricultural expert group almost every day in the paddy fields, found the problem to help farmers to correct in a timely manner, the Chinese experts skin are tan dark.

harvest season, the first demonstration field let the local farmers tasted the sweetness: demonstration field per hectare output in 9.5 tons (about 633 kilograms per mu) above, while the demonstration field next to the local farmers planted rice per hectare yield only
3 tons.
Burundi agricultural technology expert Evra Enida Kai Kai admitted that in the local rice can be said to be not money, because the output is low, less income.
However, the output of the demonstration field shows that the agricultural potential of Burundi is “very large”. “Our farmers here say that Chinese rice is a fast-paced rice.”
Nida Kayeza wrote a budget for journalists, a farmer with 0.5 hectares of paddy fields, harvesting about 14 tons of rice a year, removing the input, with an annual income of nearly 7 million Burundian francs (about 29,000
Yuan), and in the local area of ​​an area of ​​more than 80 square meters of brick houses only 6 million Burundian francs, “people have rich hope”.

China Demonstration of rice production not only in the production of a breakthrough, but also in quality is also better than the local varieties.
China’s aid Burundi third senior agricultural expert group leader, rice expert Yang Huade told this reporter, the rice output of rice can replace imported rice, and can be exported to Congo (gold), Rwanda and other neighboring countries.

Local brewed farmer Setoma relies on 1 hectare demonstration field, after a quarter of income of 7.5 million Burundian francs.
See the belly drum up the plug, the local farmers enthusiastically enrolled, want to taste the sweetness of high-yielding rice, but also compiled a jingle: “a year to build a new house, two years to marry the bride.”

farmers income more, buy a motorcycle, built a new house
“to show the fields of farmers flocked, we pull me to learn more about China’s rice varieties and planting techniques.” Nida Kai Kai introduced
Burundi is well placed in nature and is well suited for growing rice.
However, although the primary industry accounted for more than 40% of the country’s gross domestic product, agriculture and animal husbandry practitioners accounted for more than Jiucheng, but the food gap is still more than 30%.
According to the United Nations Food Program, Burundi is one of the world’s most hungry and malnourished countries, and last year the country also banned the export of food to foreign countries to cope with the drought caused by climate change.

Minister of Agriculture, Burundi, said: “China’s demonstration field of rice production is more than three times the local, which will be included in the history of agricultural development in Burundi, China’s rice development a new chapter, and more firm
We rely on China’s hybrid rice and Chinese technology to develop the confidence of rice industry. “He said,” If the country’s rice production can reach this level, then the Burundian farmers do not lack food, can really rich,

Management of 10 million mu of paddy field production and operation of the Burundian InBev social development association also expressed the hope that the expansion of China’s hybrid rice in the local cultivation, other rice planting provinces in Burundi want to invite Chinese experts to guide.
Yang Huade said, demonstration field led the enthusiasm of the villagers, they have asked to participate in the next test species.
In addition to “granting people to fish”, Chinese experts pay more attention to “granting people to fish”, the future will be in a number of regions to promote China’s hybrid rice, and allow Burundi technical staff to participate in the whole, focusing on training a number of local technical backbone,
The complementary advantages of the cloth together promote the long-term promotion of hybrid rice in the local area.
It is understood that China’s high-quality hybrid rice varieties will help Burundi to alleviate the problem of food shortages in the future, after China will also build agricultural technology demonstration center in Burundi, animal husbandry, fisheries, agricultural products processing and demonstration in Burundi cooperation.

Burundi is only a microcosm of the rapid development of China-Africa cooperation.
At present, from East Africa to West Africa, from the Sahara Desert to the Victoria Falls, Sino-African agricultural cooperation is benefiting more and more African people. Practice has proved that China’s agricultural development experience and advanced agricultural technology can help Africa to increase crop yields.

China to help Benin agricultural demonstration center director Huang Jianping said that the center has 10 cities in Benin to promote China’s high-yielding cultivation techniques of corn, training farmers 1500 people, through them to drive the surrounding farmers, corn production per hectare from 1 ton to 5
Ton, planting area of ​​5,000 hectares.
Farmers have more income, bought a motorcycle, built a new house.

Last year, under the guidance of the Chinese experts, the village of Guinea, the village of Gia, in the northern province of Senegal, increased from 150 kilograms to 620 kilograms.

In a seminar on “Africa can learn from the Chinese agricultural revolution,” Professor Paul Azama, a professor at the University of Nigeria, said that the Green Revolution began in East Asia in the 1960s, significantly increasing the production of agricultural products on the unit land.
Is the yield of wheat and rice.
Between 1970 and 1995, the East Asian region achieved a doubling of grain production on the basis of a 4 per cent increase in arable land, mainly due to localized levels of mechanization, fertilizer use and irrigation efficiency.
Participants generally agreed that African countries could learn from agricultural experience in East Asia, especially China, to increase agricultural production.

Yang Huade that the status quo of rural agriculture in Africa and decades ago, similar to China, “We are the creators of China’s agricultural miracle and witnesses, China’s experience in Africa for reference, Africa’s agricultural potential.”

reporter visited the African countries found that many people lamented the fertility of African land, but because of backward technology, poor infrastructure, lack of agricultural materials, low level of planting technology and other factors, African agricultural development has been constrained, and the resulting
Poverty and famine.
