On April 25th, a harvest ceremony was held locally for the Fujian’s Aid to East Highlands of Papua New Guinea “JunCao and Upland Rice Technology Program” Undertaken by FAFU. After on-site measurement, the yield of upland rice reached 6.4 tons/ha, as the first batch of 1.5 hectares produced a total of 9.6 tons of high-quality rice. This harvest can be used as seeds to replant about 320 hectares of fields and provide rice seeds for about 2,000 local farmers. Next season, each rice farmer can produce one ton of rice to meet the needs of a whole family for a full year.
