Dr Mohammed Bashir, the National Coordinator for STRASA and Green Super Rice (GSR III) Projects, said this at the workshop on Rice Varietal Replacement Strategies in Abuja.
Bashir said that the new varieties would help rice farmers to increase their yields from two tonnes per hectare to about seven tonnes per hectare.
He said that the move was to enable Nigeria to achieve self-sufficiency in rice production.
“Rice is a staple food which every household in Nigeria consumes but our production is very low; the local varieties produced by farmers are low-yielding and we have some biotic and abiotic challenges that limit the production of our variety.
“We usually produce about two to three tonnes, using the farmers’ varieties and with good intervention of technologies, we now have improved varieties that can yield up to four to seven metric tonnes under good management.
“I recall that in 2012, we experienced floods and most rice farms across the country were washed out.
“The plan of the government was to go to Japan or China to bring in a rice variety that can tolerate submergence or flood.
“AfricaRice and National Cereals Research Institute, Badeggi, under these STRASA and GSR projects, were able to release two prominent flood-tolerant rice varieties called 'Farrow 66’ and 'Farrow 67’,’’ he said.
Dr Francis Nwilene, the Regional Representative of AfricaRice in Nigeria, said that the projects, funded by Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, were to develop rice varieties that were tolerant to the challenges facing rice production in Nigeria and other African countries.
Mr Gary Atlin, the Senior Programme Officer, Crop Productivity Lead, Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, said that the foundation had invested between 40 and 50 million dollars on rice breeding in Africa within the last 10 years. (NAN)
