This is the VOA Special English Agriculture Report.

White rice is the world's most popular form of rice, but it goes through a million process that removes many nutrients. As a result, people who eat a poor diet based on white rice may not get enough vitamin A. Each year, an estimated 250,000 to half a million children go blind from vitamin A deficiency. The World Health Organization says half of them die within a year of losing their sight. Vitamin A deficiency is a problem especially in Africa and Southeast Asia. So scientists thought of an answer. They combined white rice with plant compounds that the body can change into vitamin A. The rice contains beta-carotene and other carotenoids. These plant carotenes give the rice a golden color. The scientists also thought of a plan to give away this golden rice for free to poor farmers. But the rice is genetically engineered. They say it cannot be made using traditional methods to breed plants. The scientists worked for ten years until 1990 to develop the technology to add genes to rice. Then it took 9 more years to get the genes they wanted into the seed. The first a few tests took place in 2004 at Louisiana State University in the United States. Golden rice is currently being tested in the Philippines. It is still not available for general use. Co-inventor Ingo Potrykus says rice with two added genes will be available in 2013. One gene comes from maize or corn and the other from a soil bacterium. Mr. Potrykus is retired from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology. He blames the delays on two many rules about genetically modified crops. Opponents say such crops may cause environmental damage by breeding with conventional plants. Opponents also question the safety of bio-tech foods. Mr. Potrykus says golden rice has never been shown to be unsafe for the environment or people. Many agricultural organizations support the project. But there are also critics, including researchers for the environmental group Green Peace. Several months ago, they questioned whether golden rice could do much for vitamin A deficiency. They said releasing genetically modified rice in Asia could permanently change traditional rice varieties and wild ancestors of rice.

White rice is the world's most popular form of rice. When it goes through a million process, every moves, many nutrients. As a result, people who eat a poor diet based on white rice may not get enough Vitamin A.
Each year, estimated 250,000 to half a million children go blind from Vitamin A deficiency. The WHO says half of them die within a year of losing their sight. Vitamin A deficiency is a problem especially in Africa and South east Asia.
So, scientists thought of an answer. They combined white rice with plant compounds that body can change into Vitamin A. The rice contains basic carotin and other carotenases. These plant carotin gives rice a golden color.

White rice is the world's most popular form of rice, but it goes through a milling process that removes many nutrients. As a result, people who eat a poor diet base on white rice may not get enough Vitamin A. Each year, an estimated 250,000 to half a million children go blind from Vitamin A deficiency.

So, Scientists thought of an answer. They combined white rice with plant compounds that the body can change into Vitamin A. The rice contains β-Carotene and other Carotenoids. These plant colorings give the rice a golden color. The scientists also thought of a plan to give away this golden rice for free to poor farmers. But the rice is genetically engineered. They say it cannot be made using traditional methods to breed plants. The scientists worked for ten years until 1990 to develop the technology to add genes to rice, then it took 9 more years to get the genes they wanted into the seed.

Co-inventor Ingo Potrykus says rices with two added genes will be available in 2013. One gene comes from maize or corn and the other from a soil bacterium.

Mr. Park says retire from the Swiss Federal institute of techolonogy. he blames they delays on too many roads about genetically medal find crops. Pauls say such crops may cause environmental damaged by planting with conventional plant. Parls also question the safty of biotech food. Mr. Park say golden rice has never been choice to be unsafty for environment or people. Many agriculture or organizations support the project, but there are also creatives including researching for the environmental group, green piece.

White rice is the world's most popular form of rice.When it go through a million process that removes many nutrients. As a result,people who eat a poor diet base on white rice may not get enough vitamin A.Each year,an estimated two hundred fifty thousand to half a million children go blind from Vitamin A deficiency.The World Health Organization says half of them died within a year of losing their sight. Vitamin A deficiency is a problem,especially,in Africa and Southeast Asia.So scientists brought an answer they combined white rice with plant compounds that the body can change into Vitamin A.The rice comtain beta carotene and other caritinoids.This plant colorings give the rice a golden color.The scientists also throught of plan to give away this golden rice for free for farmers.But the rice is genetically engineered.They say they can not be made using traditional methods to breed plants.The scientists work for ten years until 1990 to develop the technology to add genes to rice.Then is took nine more years to get the genes they want it into the seeds.The first field tests took place in 2004 at L state University in the United States.Golden rice is currently being tested in the Philippines.It is still not a avilable for general use.C says rice with two added genes will be available in 2030.One gene comes from maize or corn and the other from a soil bacterial.Mr.P retired from the Swedish federal institute of technology.He blames the delays on too many rules about genetically modify crops.Opponents say such crops may cause environmental damage by breeding with conventional plants.Opponents also requisiton the safty of bio-tech foods. Mr.P says Golden rice has never been showed to be unsafe for the environment and people.Many agricultural organizations support the project.But there are critics including researchers from the environmental group Green Peace.Several month ago they question whether golden rice could do much for Vitamin A deficiency.They said relseasing genetical modify rice in Asia could permanently change traditional rice varieties and wild ancesters of rice.
