Chinanews, Lanzhou, January 12th (Xu Xue) On the 12th, the Gansu Provincial Corn Seed Industry Research Institute started construction, aiming to establish an open, cooperative, sharing and talent introduction incentive mechanism to attract relevant domestic talent teams, R&D institutions, and advantages Enterprises, focusing on issues such as the development of the corn breeding and seed production industry in Gansu, jointly carry out scientific research and technological innovation.

On the same day, the Gansu Provincial Corn Seed Industry Research Institute Construction Launch Meeting and Gansu Corn Seed Industry Revitalization Theme Report Meeting was held in Lanzhou. Xu Mingliang, a professor at China Agricultural University, said in an online report titled “Excavation and Utilization of High-Yield Genetic Resources for Resistance to Diseases and Insects in Corn” that corn diseases and insect pests are common in the world, and generally reduce yields by 10% to 20%.

“Therefore, it is very necessary to take advantage of the breeding advantages of Gansu seed industry enterprises, combine the excavation of excellent disease resistance and high-yield genes to carry out biological breeding, improve breeding efficiency, and cultivate excellent disease-resistant corn hybrids.” Xu Mingliang said.

At present, Gansu Province has developed into the largest corn seed production base in the country. The reason why Gansu Provincial Corn Seed Industry Research Institute settled in Jiuquan is also based on Jiuquan’s resource advantages.

In recent years, the area of ​​corn seed production in Jiuquan City has stabilized at about 200,000 mu. A national-level corn seed production base and a modern seed industry industrial park in Suzhou District have been built. Gansu Province crop seed industry equipment research and development center has been established, and Dunhuang seed production There are more than 30 leading corn seed enterprises, represented by Pioneer Fine Breeds, etc., with more than 300 corn varieties with independent intellectual property rights, and the annual output of corn seeds accounts for about 10% of the national seed consumption.

Pang Qi, member of the Standing Committee of the Jiuquan Municipal Party Committee and deputy mayor, said that in the future, Jiuquan will focus on the collection and preservation of germplasm resources, biological breeding, and breeding of new corn varieties to carry out scientific research, technological innovation, and R&D services to promote the transfer and transformation of scientific and technological achievements. The Gansu Corn Seed Industry Research Institute has built it into a source of original technology and a demonstration site of applied technology, and built Jiuquan into a highland of corn seed industry in the Hexi Corridor, injecting seed industry strength and technological elements into accelerating the development of agricultural modernization and promoting rural revitalization.

The meeting revealed that the Gansu Provincial Corn Seed Industry Research Institute plans to cultivate more than 30 breakthrough new varieties by 2025, with a cumulative promotion of more than 20 million mu. The comprehensive improved seed breeding technology solution covers more than 30% of the seed production area in the province. The field of application of haploid technology has reached the leading position in China, achieving a breakthrough in biological breeding technology innovation. (Finish)
