General Studies on Hybrid Rice (2004)

The China National Hybrid Rice Research and Development Center (CNHRRDC) in Changsha, China, has hosted eleven high school students since 2004.

Established in 1984, the CNHRRDC's are to eradicate malnutrition and poverty through the development and distribution of new strains of hybrid rice.

The CNHRRDC carries out research and development on hybrid rice.



Interns at the CNHRRDC work alongside renowned international researchers and experts - Dr. Yuan Longping and Dr. Xin Yeyun - in the CNHRRDC's research labs in Changsha.

The students also have the opportunity to travel around China with their host families and colleagues to visit the Yuelu mountain, Hunan Provincial Museum, Chairman Mao's birthplace, Red Leaf Pavilion, Lushan Temple, Yunlu Palace, Zheng Ji Jia canyon, Forbidden City, the Great Wall, and the Summer Palace.
