The maximum yield of hybrid rice has reached 1123.87 kilograms per mu (0.07 hectare) in a test field in Xingyi city in Guizhou province, creating a new record for the province, according to Rice Research Institute of Guizhou Academy of Agricultural Sciences.

The planting area of the test field is around 110 mu this year.
