Since the establishment of Upland Rice Working Group,Exchange and Cooperation Consortium for Agricultural Science and Technology in GMS (ECCAST-GMS) proposed by Yunnan Academy of Agricultural Sciences (YAAS) in 2008, Food Crops Research Institute, YAAS has successively distributed the good quality and high yield upland rice varieties and production techniques to the member countries of Upland Rice Working Group according to the agreement and approval. In 2013, the upland rice variety, Luyin 46, was firstly tested on farm trial of Myanmar. After many years of multi-sites experiments, "Luyin 46" showed high and stable yield, especially in 2018, it increased by 48.84% compared with the local control variety, and stood out from several varieties. In 2020, it was released by the National Seed Committee of Myanmar. This is another GMS nation to approve the upland rice variety "Luyin 46" as the released variety after it was released by Vietnam Ministry of agriculture in 2017.
