Pyongyang, January 19 (KCNA) — Last year nearly 10,000 solar heat greenhouses covering a space of 930,000 square metres were built in a little more than six months at factories, enterprises and cooperative farms across the country.
Vegetables for winter are growing well at the greenhouses.
The Kanggye Forestry Station situated in the northern mountainous area built solar heat greenhouses in every working place to raise vegetables, such as spinach, crown daisy and scallion. Now these fresh, green and appetizing vegetables give joy to the forestry workers.
The Jangsuwon Cooperative Farm in Samsok District, Pyongyang, built 6 greenhouses, each covering a space of over 200 square metres.
Shelves were put up in every greenhouse and vegetables were grown layer upon layer to make use of the greenhouses in a three-dimentional way.
The Ungchon Cooperative Farm in Pongchon County, south Hwanghae Province, produces large quantities of vegetables, including cabbage, lettuce and crown daisy by making effective use of the greenhouses.
Furrows were cut in the vegetable plots to sow fast-growing lettuce and then cabbage between these furrows. In addition, per-unit-area vegetable yield is being increased markedly by introducing a rational crop rotation system.
