Pyongyang, June 13 (KCNA) — Rice-transplanting has been finished in the main paddy areas of the DPRK.
It has been wound up in the paddy fields except the first-crop fields and some highland areas of Jagang, Ryanggang and North Hamgyong provinces thanks to the patriotic and devoted work of the agricultural workers, KPA soldiers, government employees, working people and youth and students who turned out in response to the militant appeal of the Workers’ Party of Korea to concentrate and enlist all efforts in agricultural production.
The farms all over the country had hurled themselves into rice-transplanting in right time after making full preparations for spring farming such as repair and readjustment of tractors, rice-transplanting machines, etc.
Rice-transplanting surged into a high tide with the powerful support of the whole party, army and people. When it entered a full-fledged stage, millions of supporters rushed to the cooperative fields every day and gave sincere help in farming.
Transplanting was finished successfully in time in the west coast granaries such as Yonbaek, Jaeryong, Yoldusamcholli and Onchon plains in South Hwanghae and South Phyongan provinces.
Officials made it possible to wind up rice-transplanting in time by giving intensified technical guidance coupled with mobile organization of work and frontline-style economic agitation on the cooperative fields astir with transplanting.
Now the cooperative fields are animated with unabated strivings of agricultural workers and assistants tending transplanted rice seedlings with all care.
