PYONGYANG, May 11 (Itar-Tass) - The DPRK’s Prime Minister Pak Bong-ju pointed to the importance of timely and quality work to finish planting rice - the Koreans’ main food.
The premier visited agricultural companies and stressed it is important to implement in the agriculture modern technologies, to raise production of fertilisers in the country.
“Rice means socialism,” the local media quote Pak Bong-ju as saying. The prime minister was appointed to the position in April. He called on the agricultural companies to fight for big crops despite any difficulties.
The country’s Rodong Sinmum stresses “the current situation requires the DPRK’s absolute food independence.” The newspaper continues writing that if the republic produces enough food, it would continue making the economic progress and to improve the nuclear deterrent forces “in spite of the counterstand from the United States and their confederates against Pyongyang and other countries.”
The media stress the importance of wise use of equipment. Newspapers repeat that the country’s priority in the economy is the agriculture. Thus, they stress it necessary to “rely on creative abilities and strength of the people, to use science-proven methods under current conditions.”
The agricultural companies are receiving spare parts for their equipment, and consumer goods. The workers prick off either by using special equipment or by hands. The locals use free time, which is not much, for their private gardens where they grow corn, cabbage, beans, zucchini, onion and garlic.
As for the grain, rice is taking the biggest part of the fields. First of all, it gives more crops, which is explained by the fact that seeding grows first in dry closed soil. The Koreans have been using this method for millenniums. The main secret is they do not plant seeds into the water-full fields, but use ready sprouts for that. Use of this method raises the main product’s crops in the country, which lacks rich soil.
