China’s Hybrid Rice Story

Bambi H. Barcelona, Henry Lim Bon Liong


This lecture by Henry Lim Bon Liong focused on the development of the Philippines’ first hybrid rice, SL-8H; a project spearheaded by Henry Lim and his agri-research institute, SL Agritech Corporation. The project sought to help alleviate rice deficiency problems of the Philippines with the help of professional Chinese agriculturist, Professor Yuan Long Ping. The talk highlighted the success of the
production and brought to light the unifying relationship between China and the Philippines during the process of creating this hybrid innovation in local agriculture.
