Pyongyang, May 17 (KCNA) -- Rural communities in the DPRK are concentrating their efforts on immediate farm works as part of the efforts to implement the tasks of the April 2018 Plenary Meeting of the Central Committee of the Workers' Party of Korea.
The Ministry of Agriculture has sent multimedia and technical data of scientific farming methods to affiliated units, while encouraging rural communities to introduce high-yielding species and advanced methods of rice-seedling cultivation.
Various nutritive accelerants and growth promoters made with locally available raw materials have been supplied to rural areas and deep attention paid to setting an appropriate time for rice transplantation in keeping with leaf age of rice seedlings.
Due measures have been taken to promote the growth of earlier crops for double-cropping by taking good care of their nutrition and protect them against harmful insects by using natural enemies and vegetable insecticides.
Meanwhile, several farm machine factories have sent efficient rice-transplanting machines to rural communities, while repair and technical reconstruction of existing rice-transplanting machines are being carried out.
Efforts have also been paid to securing enough water in reservoirs for irrigation and making preparations for moving pumping equipment to necessary places. -0-
