Kim Tok Hun, member of the Presidium of the Political Bureau of the Central Committee of the Workers' Party of Korea, vice-president of the State Affairs Commission of the DPRK and premier of the Cabinet, inspected the agricultural sector.
Going round farms in South Phyongan, North Hwanghae and South Hwanghae provinces, he gave pep talks to the agricultural workers doing the immediate farming work to implement the decisions of the plenary meetings of the Party Central Committee, and acquainted himself with the farming situation.
He learned in detail about the state of harvesting of the earlier crops at the Phungthan Farm in Sunchon City, the Sinsang Farm in Hwangju County, the Paeksok Farm in Sinchon County, the Sinchang Farm in Unchon County and other farms, and called for making preparations for winter wheat and barley farming in a far-sighted way on the basis of the successes and experience gained in the farming of the first crops.
He also called on farms to concentrate efforts on manuring and cultivating paddy rice and maize well in the rainy season, take timely technical measures to prevent damage by insects and do all other farming work in a meticulous way so as to attain this year's goal of grain production without fail.
He underscored the need for the agricultural sector to bring the technical guidance over farming closer to reality under the uplifted banner of scientific farming and, in particular, for the agricultural scientific research units to solve in time the scientific and technological problems arising in increasing grain production.
Looking round irrigation and drainage facilities in the relevant areas, he called on the officials of agricultural guidance organs at all levels to always pay close attention to the work for coping with the disastrous meteorological climate like severe heat and heavy rain and to operate irrigation facilities, improve rivers and repair embankments in a responsible manner.
The field consultative meetings discussed the issue for the officials of the agricultural guidance organs to plan and command farming work in a scientific way and the issue for relevant units including construction inspection organs to give effective guidance to irrigation construction.
