Men of the people: A wheat expert dedicated to feeding more people
Ru Zhengang is a leading Chinese expert in hybrid wheat who has devoted his entire career to developing high-yield varieties over the past 40 years. He has experienced hunger before, so he knows how important food is. His aspiration is to keep people away from hunger and to have enough to eat.
On June 11, 1984, Ru joined the Communist Party of China (CPC). Being a CPC member for 37 years, he has never forgotten his original aspiration and mission, and carries the heavy burden of food security on his shoulders.
