Seeds needed for disaster relief have been collected from multiple resources to ensure the supply for grain production recovery after fatal floods battered Central China's Henan province, the Ministry of Agricultural and Rural Affairs said on Tuesday.

China is prepared to deploy seeds from the national reserve for the special supply in Henan, including 100,000 kilograms of vegetable seeds that could be planted in an area of 16,000 hectares, and 50,000 kilograms of mung beans.

Authorities and enterprises from 16 provinces and cities, including Shandong, Sichuan and Beijing, have provided seeds for disaster relief that could be planted in an area of 91,333 hectares, the ministry said. 

Companies within Henan province played a key role in seed supply, ensuring a planting area of 224,000 hectares.

Enterprises outside Henan also donated 7,200 kilograms of seed to support production recovery after the serious loss in agriculture resulting from the torrential rain.
