Pyongyang, May 10 (KCNA) — All efforts have been concentrated on agriculture to solve the food problem in the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea.
The rural communities across the country have made material and technical preparations for farming such as securing high-yielding seeds, making various kinds of big and small farm implements, producing or repairing farm machines and fertilizing fields.
Despite of sharp temperature disparity between daytime and night and continued gale, they have sowed seeds in time.
Those in some areas of South Hwanghae Province have started transplanting rice-seedlings and all others of the country plan to do it from mid-May.
Potato dibbling is in full swing in Taehongdan and other counties of Ryanggang Province.
New steps to boost the agricultural production considerably this year have been taken in the country.
The Ministry of Agriculture has set up a central office for introducing and expanding scientific farming. It has already redistributed crops to rural communities to suit their topographical conditions.
Great importance is being attached to bean farming, not less than rice farming, so as to solve the issue of edible oil and protein food.
The whole country is out to help the peasants.
Ministries and national institutions have preferentially provided farming materials to the agricultural sector, while officials and workers of industrial establishments have rendered material and labor assistance to the rural communities.
Choe Yong Nam, a department director of the Ministry of Agriculture, told KCNA that the entire Korean people are determined to solve the food problem without fail and thus to significantly celebrate the 60th anniversaries of the Workers’ Party of Korea and the liberation of the country.
