Optic Technology Aiding Hybrid Rice Breeding

About 600kg of third-generation hybrid rice seeds was sorted at a speed of 20kg/h last week, with the help of a prototype developed by Changchun Institute of Optics, Fine Mechanics and Physics (CIOMP) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences. The prototype, a fluorescence identification and sorting device, can boost the speed and accuracy of seed sorting, a help for agricultural scientists at China National Hybrid Rice R&D Centre (CNHRRDC), where third-generation hybrid rice is being developed.

  • Efficient Remote Sensing Algorithm Proposed for Landslide Monitoring

    Chinese researchers from the Chinese Academy of Sciences have designed an improved remote sensing method for more efficient landslide monitoring. They demonstrated that the SAR remote sensing plays an important role in global landslide monitoring, especially when ground live data are insufficient.

  • Researchers Date Age of China's Oldest-known Forest

    Researchers from China and the United States released the result of a joint study showing China's oldest forest dates back to 371 million years ago. The ancient forest was in Tacheng Prefecture, northwest China's Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, said Professor Xu Honghe of Nanjing Institute of Geology and Palaeontology of Chinese Academy of Sciences, the leader of the research. 

  • Designers Working on New, More Powerful Long March 11 Rocket

    Designers have begun to develop an upgraded version of the Long March 11 carrier rocket called the Long March 11A, which they said will be wider and taller than the current model and have greater thrust. A Long March 11 was launched from the Xichang Satellite Launch Center in Sichuan province for the first time on Saturday, sending two technology demonstration satellites into orbit.
