Govt conducting field trials of growing Japonica rice

The Ministry of Agriculture is currently conducting field trials to explore the possibility of growing Japonica rice, and expects to get the full results in three to four years, according to director-general of the Agriculture Ministry’s general directorate of agriculture Hean Vanhan. If Japonica rice can be grown successfully in Cambodia, it can be exported to Japan and South Korea, he said. Demand for Japonica rice accounts for 20% of the total global demand for rice. Because of its high quality, the rice is often sold at a high price. Song Saran, CEO of Amru Rice, said his company and a few other rice producers in Takeo and Prey Veng provinces are also conducting similar field trials. (Source: Khmer Times)
