|Members of the WomenCrossDMZ group attend a news conference before they leave for North Korea's capital Pyongyang Ecco Leather Australia , at a hotel in Beijing, China, May 19, 2015. REUTERS With tears, songs and laughter, 30 women activists set off from Beijing on Tuesday on a controversial trip to North Korea, where they will cross the heavily fortified demilitarized zone (DMZ) to the South in a call for peace on the divided peninsula.
The activists, including veteran American women's rights campaigner Gloria Steinem Ecco Sneakers Australia , plan two peace walks and a peace symposium in North Korea, said Christine Ahn, international coordinator for the group called WomenCrossDMZ.
North and South Korea are technically still at war after the 1950-53 Korea War ended in a truce, not a peace treaty. The North has been slapped with sanctions for its nuclear weapons tests and a U.N. inquiry has detailed wide-ranging abuses in the country.
Ahn, a Korean-American, said it was time to try a different approach to solving the crisis, brushing off criticism that the walk is a naive publicity stunt.
"We have no illusions that our walk can basically erase the conflict that has endured for seven decades," Ahn told reporters Ecco Sandals Australia , brushing away tears at one point.
"I believe that we are, basically by crossing the DMZ, breaking through this mental state that this is a permanent division," she said.
Despite its name, the DMZ is one of the most heavily militarized borders in the world. There are just three official inter-Korean border checkpoints where it is possible to cross between the two Koreas, although such crossings are rare.
Both the North and the South have given the women permission for the walk on May 24, International Women's Day for Peace and Disarmament. But the group had yet to hear from the United Nations Command, in charge of the Panmunjom border crossing where North and South Korean soldiers stand across from each other in a daily face-off.
The activists would "meet hundreds of North Korean women" Ecco Dress Shoes Australia , tour a maternity hospital, a children's preschool and a women's factory in Pyongyang, Ahn said.
Steinem said the women were engaging with the North because "it seems to me that the past of no contact has not worked".
"Ronald Reagan stood outside the Berlin Wall and said: 'Take down this wall'," she said. "We are saying: 'Take down this isolation.'"
Long coastline an advantage for large-scale cultivation
China's long coastline provides a big opportunity for cultivation of sea-rice but more research is needed to optimize the species, experts said, after China's "father of hybrid rice," Yuan Longping, revealed that a plan to cultivate rice near the coast is being researched by his team.
Yuan Ecco Slip On Shoes Australia , 86, head of the sea-rice research and development center, delivered a speech at the World Life Science Conference in Beijing on Wednesday, saying that a newly founded research center in Qingdao, East China's Shandong Province, planned to expand the yield of sea-rice to 200 kilograms per mu (0.067 hectare) within three years, the Xinhua News Agency reported.
Wild sea-rice is sometimes found in saline-alkaline soil at the junctures where rivers join the sea. The plant is resistant to pests, diseases Ecco Fusion Slip On Shoes Australia , salt and alkali and does not need fertilizer. But its unit output is only around 75 kilograms, Xinhua reported.
Compared with other countries, China has a natural advantage in cultivating sea-rice, as the wild rice growing at the estuary of long rivers could provide valuable scientific data, said Yuan.
"The sea-rice could expand the source of food and arable area by making use of China's long shoreline," Lu Baorong, a biology professor at Fudan University, told the Global Times.
"The main problem in cultivating sea-rice lies in the salt-tolerance capability Ecco Classic Moc 2.0 Shoes Australia ," Lu noted.
The Qingdao research center will use gene sequencing to cultivate new, high-yield strains of sea-rice that can grow with saline water, but the technology is a challenge, Yuan said.
However, he noted that China has more than 1 billion mu of saline-alkali land that has not been cultivated so far, together with some 10 million mu of intertidal zone. "The cultivation of sea-rice is very promising."
The target yield of sea-rice is 300 kilograms per mu, he revealed.
In response to a comment that the hybrid rice is of "high quantity with low quality" during the Wednesday conference, Yuan said that the combination of "high quality" and "high quantity" is very difficult Ecco Howell Shoes Australia , but they are not necessarily contradictory, Xinhua reported.
"Some people have a bias against hybrid rice, claiming that high quantity cannot come with high quality," Yuan said, adding that "in the last century, the main goal was to solve the subsistence problem, so we needed to prioritize quantity; but now, we are also focusing on quality."
Yuan said that China has a huge population with a small per capita cultivated land and in order to ensure food security Ecco boots australia , the country has to increase the yield per unit area, instead of striving for quality.
Over the past decades, Chinese scientists, led by Yuan, have worked out new approaches to significantly increasing the yield of rice, Xinhua reported
