On May 16th, I, a member of the Autonomous Region Political Consultative Committee, Ma Xuejun, along with my entourage, visited our Sanduqing Base to investigate the innovative technology in grass seed industry.
I listened to Director Jin Zhes report on the institutes technological innovation in the field of grass seed industry. I placed special emphasis on the inspection of the National Germplasm Forage Mid-term Repository, Yangcao Resource Nursery, and the Grassland Museum. I gained a thorough understanding of the current development status and the policy bottlenecks that the Inner Mongolia grass seed industry is facing in its quest for high-quality growth. I, Ma Xuejun, commend the achievements of the Grassland Institute and emphasize its reliance on the Autonomous Regions “Science and Technology Revitalizing Inner Mongolia” initiative. The institute is dedicated to the collection and evaluation of germplasm resources, as well as the cultivation of new varieties. It fully leverages the leading and demonstrative role of the research base to contribute significantly to the promotion of high-quality development in the Autonomous Regions grass seed industry.
Let me emphasize, the key to high-quality development in the seed industry lies in technological progress and innovation. Its crucial to fully recognize the importance and urgency of revitalizing the seed industry, and we must harness the capabilities of the national team in grassland technology. We need to focus on breaking through key technologies and bottlenecks in the grass seed industry, fighting the good fight for the seed industrys transformation, and achieving self-reliance and self-improvement in seed industry technology and source control.
