Rural communities are concentrating efforts on minimizing drought damage in the DPRK.

The drought has persisted in most areas of the country since mid-April this year.

According to a researcher of the Academy of Agricultural Science, now is the heading date of wheat and barley and when they suffer damage from drought, their ripening rate and 1 000-grain weight will go down. If corn suffers drought damage in the early period of growth, there will be gap in the growth and thus will see decrease in the per-hectare yield finally. If there is lack of water, it is impossible to do rice-transplanting qualitatively in time, he added.

South Hwanghae Province, the biggest agricultural province of the country, has taken active measures to limit drought damage.

The provincial rural economy committee surveyed fields vulnerable to drought damage and those where crops are ill-fed and worked out and issued a technical manual so that they could take measures.

All counties in the province, including Anak and Samchon counties, are directing energy to ensuring enough irrigation water by operating pumping and power equipment at full capacity.

Farms made water holes covered with vinyl sheets around fields and fill them with water at the daytime and have been watering in mornings and evenings.

On the other hand, they spray highly-effective nutritious solution and growth promoter to crops while scrupulously organizing work to water fields.

In North Hwanghae Province, all kinds of vehicles and water pumps have been mobilized to give water and apply additional fertilizer for the leaves by effectively using waters of wells, pools and underground reservoirs. Meanwhile, multi-element mineral fertilizer and amino acid microelement compound fertilizer are actively used to improve the growth of crops.

South Hamgyong Province examined the states of existing wells, tube-wells and pools again and urgently repaired the leaking sections of reservoirs.

All the people are out in watering with the faith that they can overcome drought, if they believe in their strength and struggle, and with the awareness that tomorrow is late.
