Who was it who discovered the ST25 rice variety?
Engineer Ho Quang Cua is the father of the famous ST25 rice today. He was born in Hoa Dong rural poor commune, Vinh Chau coastal town, Soc Trang province. His childhood was associated with the field, the village.
In 1978, graduated in cultivation from Can Tho University, new engineer Ho Quang Cua returned to his hometown, took a position at the Agricultural Department of My Xuyen district. Before retiring, he held the position of Deputy Director of the Department of Agriculture and Rural Development (MARD) of Soc Trang province. It can be said that the life of the engineer Ho Quang Crab has always been closely associated with rice and rice seed.
Since 1991, he has joined the research team of the Mekong Delta Rice Institute (Mekong Delta) and the University of Can Tho to collect and test ancient Vietnamese aromatic rice varieties. At the same time, the Soc Trang soil engineer had the idea of making high-end aromatic rice for Vietnam, but firstly for his homeland. “Back in the day, Soc Trang’s Bai Sa land was famous for its good rice. Therefore, in my mind, I always cultivate hope, set myself the task of promoting the legacy of his father, taking the rice of his homeland further,” he shared.
Exactly 20 years ago, the delicious ST3 rice was recognized by the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development as the national rice variety. So far, although ST3 has ended its role, thanks to the delicious and delicious genetic resources still circulating in ST rice later, in turn, it has been presented, creating important highlights, appreciated by the market. In 2008, the ST19, ST20 variety was popular on the market. The next years are “children” ST21, ST24, ST25… which surprised and conquered the public.
Mr. Cua said what he needed to do, he had already done it and was satisfied about it. Specifically, in the last 5 rice crops, despite the storm, he still sharpened and polished ST25 Vietnamese pearl seeds. Along with this is the completion of the appeal of ST25 brand in the United States; Vietnam rice brand ST24, ST25 has been protected throughout Europe.
Journey to create “the best rice in the world – ST25”
Returning to the birth of the ST vFO rice variety in 1996, in one descent into the field, he discovered that there were strange rice plants, purple roots, very beautiful elongated seeds. When he saw that the rice trees were not the same as the previous ones, he thought he had caught gold. When carrying out the hybridization work, mass breeding of aromatic rice named ST was born.
There were about 1,050 mutants that were first collected by him and his colleagues, then grown experimentally, hybridized in various ways to select the most superior individuals for production. “More than 20 years ago, Thailand announced that it has bred two non-photosensitive aromatic rice varieties that they call yellow seeds. Why did they do it and I didn’t? So I think of the aromatic rice variety for Vietnam and Soc Trang (ST) rice research group was formed”, engineer Ho Quang Cua told.
In 2017, at the 9th International Conference on rice trading organized by The Rice Trader (Rice Trade Organization) in Macau, ST24 rice with outstanding qualities (short days, long grain, white, plastic rice, pineapple leaf aroma…) was honored as one of the 3 best rice types according to world standards; the first prize ST24 organic rice at the III Vietnam Rice Festival – Long An in 2018. In 2019, at the World’s Best Rice Competition in 2019, organized by The Rice Trader from November 10 to 13, 2019, ST25 of Ho Quang private enterprise (Soc Trang) excelled in surpassing Thai rice, winning the first prize in the competition.
According to the engineer Ho Quang Cua, this time, he and his colleagues brought 2 types of rice, ST24 and ST25. As a result, both types of rice are scored simultaneously with each other. Due to a bit of confusion, on the morning of November 12, 2019 (Vietnam time), the jury announced the ST24 variety as the best rice in the world in 2019. However, by the evening of November 12, 2019, the ST25 variety was selected as the best rice at this competition, officially announced on trtworldrice.com. With this result, Vietnam is proud that both ST24 and ST25 rice varieties were rated as the best rice in the world in 2019.
