China launched the State High-tech De­vel­op­ment Plan (863 Pro­gram) in March 1986 in hopes of im­prov­ing the coun­try’s abil­ity to in­no­vate. Many tech­no­log­i­cal achieve­ments in­clud­ing Su­per Hy­brid Rice with an av­er­age yield of 760 kilo­grams per

mu (equal to 0.067 hectares), ge­net­i­cally mod­i­fied cot­ton re­sis­tant to pests, and a home- built su­per server with world- lead­ing func­tions have ben­e­fited from the pro­gram.
