Participants were amazed by the study tour. “I’ve never seen upland rice cultivation. When I saw the upland rice grew by Chinese experts, I was amazed they grew goods well and I hope the Chinese experts can teach us how to grow upland rice in our community.” said Emma KAHENGA, farmer representative from Mukulubwe rice pilot area.

“The government of DRC should introduce light upland rice cultivation technologies and ‘adaptable and fast grown’ crops such as millet. Chinese upland rice and millet should be popularized to promote food security.” said Mouyi, graduate student from University of Lubumbashi.

“Now that the micro vegetable program is fully funded, I hope that Chinese experts could come to surrounding areas to provide guidance in growing vegetable.” said John MUTUNDA, expert from FAO.

“I’m honored to work at the Demonstration park, and I’m happy to see the huge effects made by the agricultural technologies promoted by Chinese experts. It raises hope to develop agriculture and achieve food security here.” said Arnaud LUELA, farm engineer at a television interview.

According to Mr. NDOKO, the success of this activity would greatly promote the next stage of the SSC project. Several farmers invited Chinese experts to their farms for production guide at the activity.
