China News Service, Shaanxi, Yangling, August 5th (Li Yifan and Zhang Yichen) "Many of my students come from countries along the 'Belt and Road', and I hope they will bring technology from Yangling and China back to their hometowns, so that China's 'seed' can take root. Hai Jiangbo, associate professor of Northwest A&F University and director of the African Studies Center, told a reporter from Chinanews.com on the 5th.

  Yangling is an important birthplace of Chinese farming civilization. Today, Yangling is one of the important agricultural scientific research and education bases in China and is known as China's "Agricultural Science City".

With the advancement of the "Belt and Road" construction, Yangling has gradually become a platform for international agricultural cooperation with its advantages in technology and talents.

  A reporter from Chinanews.com saw in the Yangling Smart Agriculture Demonstration Park, the training base of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (hereinafter referred to as: SCO) agricultural technology exchange and training demonstration base, that there are intelligent greenhouses designed according to the climate characteristics of the SCO countries. , different plants are precisely "cared for", and there are many new varieties of fruits, vegetables and flowers.

At the same time, technological elements such as the intelligent agricultural cloud management and control system and the environmental intelligent control system in the base have already “infiltrated” into agricultural production.

  Chen Long, deputy director of the SCO Agricultural Technology Exchange and Training Demonstration Base Work Office, said that the region, relying on Northwest A&F University, initiated the establishment of the Silk Road Agricultural Education Technology Innovation Alliance, attracting 95 scientific and educational institutions and enterprises from 18 countries to join.

It has successively established 15 agricultural science and technology demonstration parks in Kazakhstan, Belarus and other countries, providing a rich carrier for China to deepen international cooperation and exchanges in the agricultural field.

  In recent years, Yangling has successively established cooperative relations with more than 60 countries around the world in the field of modern agriculture, and established 13 international scientific and technological cooperation platforms such as the China-US Soil and Water Conservation and Environmental Protection Research Center, and the China-Pakistan (Pakistan) Agricultural Biological Resources Research Center. It has opened up channels for exchanges and cooperation with countries along the “Belt and Road” and countries around the world.

At the same time, it has also contributed a lot of "good seeds" to the development of modern agriculture.

  According to reports, the cutting-edge agricultural technology from Yangling provides a "Chinese solution" for global food security.

For example, the research results of wheat stripe rust are known as "the template for international wheat stripe rust control", and have been promoted in Kenya, Ethiopia and other countries successively, and the average annual loss of wheat has been restored by 2 billion kilograms.

  "In some countries along the 'Belt and Road', there is an urgent need for animal and plant inspection and quarantine technologies, as well as talents, experts and professional training."
