There are a lot of great people in China. From ancient times to the present, they are very patriotic. I really admire them. Of all the great Chinese, I think Yuan Longping is the greatest.
Yuan Longping is the father of hybrid rice. When it comes to him, most people respect him very much. Yuan Longping listed such a formula: Knowledge + sweat + inspiration + opportunity = success.
In 1960, a rare natural and man-made disaster brought about a serious food famine. All the people were thin and hungry... Yuan Longping also experienced the pain of hunger. He witnessed the harsh reality, remembered the old society and the hardships of the common people, so he wanted to cultivate new varieties of rice with his own wisdom.
In the experimental field, he found a different rice plant, different from ordinary rice. The difference between them lies in the huge difference in rice yield. This discovery surprised Yuan Longping. After careful searching, this was the only one in the huge experimental field. After careful observation and statistical analysis, it is proved that this rice is a "natural hybrid rice" Proved that this kind of rice has obvious heterosis phenomenon, he excitedly made it into a specimen, took a picture and sent it to his assistant, and went outside to look for it.
He and his assistant searched for a long time, and finally found six precious natural rice plants at a water edge. The results of the first cross were not ideal, and new problems came again. Rice is monogamous and self pollinated, so it is difficult to get rid of the male flowers one by one.
In order to overcome the world's problems, he bent down in the experimental field every day, taking good care of rice trees, as if he were his own son. When the next batch of rice was successful, he just walked into the field and rushed out excitedly, looking up and laughing: "I succeeded! My hybrid rice is successful After repeated cultivation, the yield has jumped from 800 Jin / mu to 1600 Jin / mu. By 2020, the yield of rice stem is higher than that of Zizania latifolia, which is more than 2000 Jin / mu.
Yuan Longping has made a great contribution to China, which has fed more than one billion people. It has also made due contributions to the world. Now hybrid rice has been popularized all over the world. I will study hard and repay my motherland in the future.
