Max Armstrong shares news of a Chinese rice program using a salt tolerant strain

Max Armstrong reports on a program in China to raise seawater rice in an area of the country where the water is salty. The breakthrough in production comes from a rice strain bred to thrive in highly salty conditions. China is working on ways to boost its production of food crops and reduce imports from other countries.
