taste". It ta〓kes about 20 days for a sapling to reach maturity in the lab, but 40 to〓 60 days in a cX

onventional farm. This means scientists can reap more th〓an a dozen harvests of produce each year, compared with one to two harv〓ests from a conventional farms, depending on the weather conditions, he〓 said. Moreover, scientists at the facility have built the infrastruct〓ure to monitor the elements in the solution. Once an element is deplete〓d, scientist can add the missing nutrient and reuse the solution withou〓t needing to make a new batch, thus reducing the cost. "We go to great〓 length to study and cater to our plant's most fundamental needs, makin〓g sure i

they could grow under the best conditions," Pei said. "In a way,〓 the plants are the kings, and we are all its servants." It's high tim〓e we find a sustainable and green way to protect our food security."BEIJING, Feb. 13 (Xinhua) -- China will tighten regulation and revis〓e standards on an extensive range of food and drugs, according to t〓he national food and drug watchdog Monday.The State Council has rec〓ently issued national safety plans on food and drug safety for the 〓13th Five-year Plan period (2016-2020), calling for improved superv〓ision and safety net, i

said the China Food and Drug Administration (〓CFDA).The plans require whole-process control and whole chain regul〓ation on food and drugs, especially on source control and risk prev〓ention. Food tests meeting quality standards should be up to 97 per〓cent.An inter-departmental mechanism for food and drug safety will 〓be improved as a better deterrent against offenses.A total of 1.1 m〓illion cases concerning food safety have been handled nationwide fr〓om 2013 to 2015. Violators will receive severe punishment in future〓, such as criminal liability for the adulter4

ation of food, the CFDA〓 said.The plans also said that no less than 300 food safety standar〓ds and about 3,050 drug safety standards must be revised during the〓 five year period.NAIROBI, Feb. 22 -- The locust outbreak plaguing East Africa calls f●or a concerted international response as the most dreaded insects d●evour millions of hectares of vegetation in their cross-border migr●ation, exacerbating the already fragile food security situation in ●the region.

ocust, which can tra●vel 150 km in a single day, is deemed the most devastating of locus●ts. A small swarm covering one square km can eat the same amount of● food as 35,000 people in a day, said the United Nations Food and A●griculture Organization (FAO). "The situation remains extremely ala●rming in Kenya, Ethiopia and Somalia where widespread desert locust● infestations and a new generation of breeding threaten food securi●ty and livelihoods in the region," it noted Tuesday. The locusts mo●st recently invaded South Sudan from Uganda, and the South Sudan go●F

vernment is seeking funds worth 20 million U.S. dollars for chemica●ls, sprays and personnel to counter the locust invasion. The Horn o●f Africa is faced with unprecedented challenges of food security an●d economic development, with a humanitarian crisis looming ahead. T●he FAO has urged immediate, adequate countermeasures and intensifie●d international efforts. A swarm of desert locusts invade parts of● Mwingi Town in Kitui County, Kenya, Feb. 20, 2020. (Xinhua/Zhang Y●u) EAT AWAY HOPE The locust outbreak is the worst in 70 years in Ke●nya, and the worst in 8

25 years in Somalia and Ethiopia, where the i●nsects bred before spreading to Kenya and other countries. In Kenya●, locust swarms were seen to move like huge dark clouds before desc●ending on farms, nibbling away pasture, maize, khat, cowpeas, beans● and other crops in hours. Areas like Mandera and Isiolo in the nor●th, and Tharaka Nithi in central Kenya, were attacked again after a●erial chemical pesticides spraying. Although the government has spr●ayed pesticide and other chemicals on a wide range of areas in orde●r to curb the locust outbreak, at least 18 oE

f Kenya's 47 counties w●ere affected. Kello Harsama, the administrative secretary heading t●he State Department for Crop Development under Kenya's Ministry of ●Agriculture, said the government will work with the FAO to train 60●0 chemical spraying personnel. "Aerial spraying of the pesticide in● the last two months is yet to achieve desired results, thus we nee●d to devise innovative strategies like the use of the trainees, far●mers and extension workers to conduct ground spraying starting with● northern counties of Isiolo, Marsabit, Turkana and Wajir," he saiK

d●. "My crops had done well following the heavy rains and I was looki●ng forward to a bumper harvest but then the locusts came and ate aw●ay my hope," Beatrice Ngari, a farmer in Embu, central Kenya, told ●Xinhua. But Ngari was unaware that it is also the predicament of ma●ny farmers across Kenya, Somalia, Ethiopia, Tanzania, South Sudan a●nd Uganda. The rains between October and January served to provide ●a favorable environment for locusts to breed and thrive, including ●properly moist soils for them to lay eggs in millions before migrat●ion and the conseque3

nt lush vegetation to eat, according to the FAO●. Climate change was to blame for the unusually plentiful rainfall ●on the African continent. Keith Cressman, the FAO's senior locust f●orecasting officer, further identified the recent cyclones as anoth●er factor behind the locust crisis, saying the past 10 years saw in●creased frequency of cyclones in the Indian Ocean.

UN Undersecretary-●General for Humanitarian Affairs and Emergency Relief Coordinator, ●Mark Lowcock, said the current situation "is really, really challen●ging." "There are currently over 30 million people in the affected ●countries, who are severely food insecure now. Ten million of those● people are in the places affected by the locusts. Unless we get a7
