3rd Global Summit on Plant Science
China National Rice Research Institute, China
Lianfeng Zhu conducted researches on rice high yield production and physiology with emphasis on improving nutrient use efficiency, root function and identifying the morphological traits and physiological processes that limit the advance of rice yield potential in the irrigated ecosystem at CNRRI. His group have developed an aerated water irrigation method which has obtained a national invention patent and published papers. His current researches focus on improving the nutrient use efficiency and reducing the nitrogen fertilizer input in rice production. Under the support of National Natural Science Foundation of China and Natural Science Foundation of Zhejiang Province, He conducts experiments to study the regulation mechanism of rhizosphere oxygen on nitrogen transform and nitrogen metabolism of rice. Simultaneously, try to develop a high-yielding rice cultivation technique with reduced nitrogen input and improved nitrogen use efficiency based on the regulation of rhizosphere oxygen concentration.
