为什么中国在偷美国的玉米种子?

Three years ago, a security guard working for seed company Pioneer Hi-Bred came across something unusual on a road in Iowa: Just off the pavement, a man was on his knees, digging in a field.

3年前,一个先锋良种公司的保安在爱荷华州的公路上碰巧发现了一个不寻常的现象,一个人在人行道旁正跪在地上挖着什么。

Challenged by the guard, Mo Hailong claimed to be an employee of the University of Iowa who was traveling to a nearby conference. He jumped back in his car and sped away.

面对保安的质询,莫海龙声称他是爱荷华州立大学的雇员正在赶往附近的一场会议,他迅速的跳回了车里,然后跑掉了。

U.S. authorities would later accuse Hailong, and five other Chinese nationals, of stealing corn seeds and attempting to smuggle them back to China.

美国当局稍晚些指控莫海龙和其他五个中国公民偷窃美国玉米种子,并试图把他们运回中国。

A seventh defendant, Mo Yun, was arrested and charged Wednesday with stealing trade secrets for her husband's seed company -- the Beijing Dabeinong Technology Group Company.

第七位被告,莫云,已被逮捕,并在周三被指控为其丈夫的公司,北京北大农科技集团窃取商业机密。

The details of the case, laid out by prosecutors, underscore the difficulty of safeguarding U.S. intellectual property, and the determination of some foreign rivals to acquire technology by illicit means.

检察官透露了案子的一些细节,他强调了保护美国的知识产权的难度,因为一些外国竞争对手下决心通过非法手段获取技术。

For six years, the Chinese nationals hopscotched across rural Iowa and Illinois, stealing valuable inbred corn seed from Pioneer, Monsanto (MON) and LG Seeds, prosecutors said in an updated indictment. The group rented storage facilities, bought their own testing field and concocted elaborate cover stories.

6年间,中国公民一直在偷取先锋,孟山都,LG种业的有价值的玉米原种,并且从爱荷华的农村一直偷到伊利诺伊州的农村。检察官指出在最新的指控中,这些人租来了储存设施,买了他们自己的试验用地,精心包装了他们的真实用意。

"These are actually very serious offenses," one of the accused said during a recorded conversation reproduced in the indictment. "They could treat us as spies," his colleague replied.

“实际上这些都是非常严重的犯罪”其中一名被告在起诉书中的笔录上说到“他们把我们当作间谍”他的同事回答道

Three members of the group tried to smuggle the stolen goods out of the U.S. in 2012, concealing hundreds of seeds in Orville Redenbacher popcorn boxes and Subway napkins. One tried to reach Canada; the others boarded aircraft bound for Beijing

团伙的三名成员2012年试图走私美国赃物,他们把数以百计的种子藏在Orville Redenbacher爆米花盒和地铁餐巾纸中,其中一人试图到加拿大,其他人登机回北京。

The Chinese nationals weren't risking imprisonment for just any corn -- they were after inbred seeds used to create the hybrids that are then sold to farmers.

这些中国公民不会为了这些种子冒险进监狱的,他们用这些原种进行杂交,然后卖给农民。

Inbreds are closely guarded secrets. Companies spend tens of millions of dollars on research to produce strains that boost yields and are resistant to drought and insects.

原种是至高机密。种子公司会花费数千万美元研究生产菌株,以提高产量和耐旱,耐虫效果。

China has become a major corn importer in recent years, and the stolen technology could have played a role in boosting domestic production.

近年来,中国已成为主要的玉米进口国,这些偷来的技术可以在提高其国内玉米生产量上起到了一定作用。

The case is the latest in a series of incidents involving Chinese nationals working in the U.S. Some are accused of stealing rice technology and aerospace secrets for China.

此案时对在美中国公民一系列指控的最新一起,还有一些人被指控为中国偷窃美国的大米和航天技术。

"Identifying and deterring those focused on stealing trade secrets, propriety and confidential information or national security information is the number two priority for the FBI second only to terrorism," FBI special agent Thomas Metz said in a statement

“识别和阻止那些专注于窃取商业机密,其所需机密信息或国家安全信息的行为是FBI的两个优先事物之一,且仅次于恐怖主义,“FBI特工托马斯·梅茨在一份声明中说到。

Beijing Dabeinong Technology Group Company, and its subsidiary, Beijing Kings Nower Seed, did not respond to requests for comment.

北京大北农科技集团和它的子公司,北京金色农华种业,没有回应记者的采访请求。

Analysts say that Beijing's use of economic espionage can be attributed in part to its drive to modernize the country in recent decades.

分析人士指出,北京的经济间谍活动可以部分归因于其近几十年来驱动国家现代化的努力。

The illicit acquisition of technology has helped China accelerate the process, bypassing problems that would otherwise require years of research to resolve. It's an issue that has drawn the attention of the White House.

非法的技术收购帮助中国加快了这一进程,使其绕过问题,否则就需要多年的研究才能解决。这个问题引起了白宫的注意。

President Obama has raised the issue with his Chinese counterpart, Xi Jinping. But his arguments have carried less weight following revelations by Edward Snowden that U.S. agencies were attempting to monitorChinese telecommunications company Huawei.

奥巴马总统已经向中国国家主席Xi提出了这个问题,。但他的理由与爱德华·斯诺登所揭露的,美国机构试图监视中国电信公司华为相比分量要少的多。

Chinese officials have been quick to levy charges of hypocrisy against the U.S. An official at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said in May that the U.S. was engaged in theft of secrets and snooping on companies, politicians and others.

中国官员迅速伪善地回击了美国,5月份中国外交部的一位官员表示,美国正在从事窃取秘密和探听公司,政治家和一些其他人的活动。

So maybe it's time to cut back our immigration quotas, both legal and illegal. Do we really need to keep letting more and more people in? What are we really accomplishing ?

你妈的 不要 骗低能儿啦-----你家玉米种在人行道上啊?太可笑拉! 想好了再编~~~~~~~~~~~~~


“杂交玉米之父”李登海被确定为泰山学者特聘专家

日前,山东省委、省政府从海内外知名学者专家中选拔确定47人为山东省泰山学者特聘专家教授。我国著名育种专家李登海,被确定为山东登海种业股份有限公司玉米遗传育种与栽培学岗位泰山学者特聘专家。


李登海从上世纪七十年代初起步,从事玉米育种30多年间,先后选育玉米高产新品种30多个,6次开创和刷新了我国夏玉米的高产纪录,目前世界夏玉米亩产1402.86千克的高产记录就是他在2005年创造的。这些新品种获得了大面积的推广,创造了极大的经济效益和社会效益。据农业部统计,登海公司选育品种年最大推广面积占全国玉米种植面积的1/3以上,累计推广9.7亿亩,增加社会经济效益1000多亿元,为解决“三农”问题和国家粮食安全做出了重大贡献。


李登海在杂交玉米领域特别是在紧凑型玉米育种和高产栽培方面所具有的自主创新能力和做出的突出贡献,得到了社会各界的承认和尊重。2004年2月20日,在全国科技奖励大会上,李登海主持选育的紧凑型玉米新品种“掖单13号”荣获国家科技进步一等奖



前几年的新闻。我偷你maB偷! 你们那点东西值得我们这么来偷?


一个强盗、抢劫犯、强奸犯还好意思到处乱咬人。

扯淡都不会,区区玉米种子还用鬼鬼祟祟地跑到地里去挖?顺便驳一句,美帝的棱镜计划几乎把全世界都扒光了,别告诉我这计划只是用来偷窥偷听用的!

放屁!那个家伙是美国人,他有美国国籍。为什么他在中国不偷,到了美国就偷?说明美国就是一群偷儿组成的,就是一个盗窃的国度,中国叫“桔生淮南则为枳”

西方偷中国的不计其数。

欧洲人当年迷恋喝茶,但欧洲乃至其殖民地都不喝茶,咋办?有“旅行家”到中国福建偷茶种,跑到印度,于是印度红茶出现了。

欧洲人当年迷恋中国瓷器,但欧洲不知道这种神奇美丽光滑的器皿的制作方法,咋办?跑到景德镇“旅游”,回家时带着瓷器全套资料。

西方人爱穿光滑的中国丝绸,但谁也不知道这些丝绸从哪里来的,拜占庭人偷了中国的养蚕技术,于是丝绸之路被废了。
