  In the Five "Top-Ten" Contests organized by China Association for Science and Technology, Hunanese Yuan Longping, "Father of Hybrid Rice", is ranked in the "top 10 disseminator of technology", while his successful breeding and wide application of hybrid rice is rated as the "top-ten most influential technologies in China". A popular science reading "Whys in Masterpieces (Natural Science)", created by Sui Guoqing, Director-General of Hunan Science Writer Association, a noted popular science writer, is rated among the "top-ten favorite popular science readings".

  The ten outstanding disseminators of technology are Yuan Longping, Qian Xuesen, Hua Luogeng, Mao Yisheng, Ye Zhishan, Deng Jiaxian, Qian Sanqiang, Zhu Kezhen, Li Siguang and Wang Xuan. Yuan’s achievements in scientific research of the breeding of short-stalked rice, hybrid rice and super hybrid rice have been keeping the leading level of its kind in the world for three times since 1960s. With the wide application of the first two research results, the single yield of paddy rice has been raised to about 600 kilos from 400 kilos before, contributing an amazing increase of over 300 billion kilos for the recent 20 years.

  Sui's popular science reading "Whys in Masterpieces (Natural Science)" is informative, interesting and reader-friendly, and mainly describes anecdotes of Chinese and foreign masters in composing their masterpieces as well as their far-reaching influences to the future generations.
