In 2009, Chinese agricultural experts helped build 11 demonstration areas for paddy rice, with a total growing area of 2,000 ha. They bred 530 tonnes of fine strains of rice, which were planted in areas totaling 3,530 ha. Several of the rice strains produced an output three times or more than the original output.
The only source for this record is the Chinese white paper on foreign aid, which reported on aid up to 2009. This could mean the figures above are aggregates of all Chinese agricultural research operations in Guinea-Bissau, not a specific project. Possibly related to ID#16.
