Super Wild Rice

Perennial Plant

Hybrid rice needs to be planted every year. After each harvest, the roots need to be removed from the field and new young seedlings need to be set again. It also needs to be harvested in time to prevent lodging from happening.

Unlike hybrid rice, Super Wild Rice is a perennial plant. Setting young seedlings is only needed once at the beginning and no more after. The wild rice will grow itself year after year even after being harvested. It does not have lodging problem, saves labour cost, provides the environment to produce companion products such as fishes and ducks, and converts the fields to ecological environment for sustainable agriculture.

Relying on its wild nature, Super Wild Rice does not require weeding or chemical fertilizer. It has a natural resistance to more pests and diseases comparing to hybrid rice. It can grow in a temperature below minus. Its stalk stands strong even in wind and does not have lodging problem. Because no chemical fertilizer, the paddy soil condition is improved year after year

The First Super Wild Rice

The first Super Wild Rice was discovered in Chongqing, China

Extended Nursery

More seedlings are fostered via extended nursery year after year.

10 Years After

10 year after, there are currently over 6000 hectare Super Wild Rice paddy fields in China.

Growth in Different Years

The 1st Year

The first harvest in the first year after setting seedling.

The 5th Year

The same paddy field being harvested three times each year, after five years, from the initial seedling set five years ago.

Non-stop Growing Roots

This Super Wild Rice has been harvested 9 times in the past 3 years. Its roots keep growing and never stop. The white roots are the new ones and therefore new seedlings keep growing themselves from the new roots. The withered rice stalk was cut from the last harvest, and new green leaves are the new seedlings.

Resistance to Lodging

Hybrid rice has lodging problem. Lodging occurs when an ear stalk falls over in the wind and rots on the ground.

Super Wild Rice does not have lodging problem because of its strong stalk. Even if the harvest date is missed, its stalk still stands strong.

Wild Nature

For hybrid rice, killing weeds requires herbicides. Super Wild Rice does not need herbicides. Just flood the paddy fields with water, and the weeds will be killed but the Super Wild Rice is left intact. Super Wild Rice has its wild nature that does not require chemical fertilizer either.

High Production

The production of Super Wild Rice is no less than hybrid rice. On average, the paddy field produces about 10 tones of grain per hectare, 6 tonnes of rice per hectare, 3 harvest seasons every year. It reduces labour costs significantly comparing to hybrid rice because it's a perennial plant, and there is no need for setting seedling annually. It saves the cost of chemical fertilizers and herbicides, and its paddy field can be used to raise companion products such as fishes and ducks at the same time. The rice is sweet, rich in selenium and high in protein.

Resistance to Pests

Super Wild Rice has strong resistance to more pests and diseases, and requires much less pesticides comparing to what hybrid rice requires.

Saving Labour

In Asia, it's currently very common that more young generations move to urban areas, leaving older people alone in the paddy field. There is often not enough labour to grow rice and many paddy fields are left barren. The Super Wild Rice minimizes labour cost and turns the barren paddy fields to production lands.
