global warming creats a new kind of rice

Recently, I have learned a new kind of rice that was developed by a laboratory in Fukuoka prefecture. The rice's name is "geknki-tsukushi", and its feature is to resist hot summer and to produce good amount of rice with good taste.

These days, I often feel the influence of climate change. But, I am impressed with the effort of engineers in laboratory to develop the new rice that adjusts to climate change.

I have already eaten the rice, it is very good, I think.

I try to translate this Japanese sentence on the labeling information into English.


""geniki-tuskushis" is rice that is strong against global warming and tastes very good. In recent years, it has continued that the temperature in every August and September is higher than usual years under global warming. We have recognized a tendency that the shortage of rice piece makes rice's quality and taste. So, the agricultural laboratory in Fukuoka prefecture 【in my direct translation】(福岡県農業総合試験場) had started to develop a new kind of rice since 1998(平成20年), as the result of its efforts, the new rice that is strong against hot weather and good taste was born."

I'm sorry that it took me a while to reply to this. It's interesting that there's a new type of rice available now. I think it's interesting that you undertook that translation challenge. I should try this sort of thing sometime.
