One August day Juche 65 (1976), President Kim Il Sung made the rounds of maize field at a farm.

The field had yielded high crops before but that year the ears of the maize did not ripe well.

The officials and farmers tried to find out its reason but in vain.

An official said that draught might stand to reason.

But the President did not agree with him, saying that as the farm had a sprinkler irrigation system, the field must have fully been watered.

After gazing at the maize again, he ascribed its main reason to its seed.

In fact, the farmers planted the new seeds which still had some defects of the original ones, thinking that it would not have effect on maize production.

Even though they observed the growth of the crops every morning and night since the day they planted the new seeds, they failed to find out what was wrong.

But the President, with his encyclopedic knowledge and scientific foresight, pointed out the genetic drawback of the crops at once, to the surprise of all accompanying officials.
