Malaysia to Cultivate Aerobic Rice in 2014
Saturday, 2013/08/03 | 05:38:46

Malaysia's Ministry of Agriculture and Agro-based Industries will cultivate aerobic rice next year to meet the country's rice production. Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob said the researchers from the Malaysian Agricultural Research and Development Institute (MARDI) has developed Aerobic Rice, a paddy variant that is resistant to heat and can be planted in areas with poor water supply.


"Seeds of aerobic type only needs water when there is no rain and the method can be carried out by splashing water to moisten the soil. The seed maturity is shorter and can be harvested after 90 days compared to 110 days of wetland paddy. "The Aerobic Rice maximizes the use of land by planting three times a year and farmer's income is expected to increase between 30 and 50 per cent by 2020, with a GNI contribution of RM1 billion," he said.
