The Jangchon Vegetable Cooperative Farm in Sadong District of Pyongyang produces large quantities of such vegetable-fruits as cucumber and tomato and such leaf vegetables as lettuce, crown daisy and spinach.

The farm put greenhouse vegetable farming on a scientific and intensive basis to supply Pyongyang citizens with fresh vegetables all the year round.

Anyone who visits it to learn from its experience is struck with admiration for the work attitude of its employees who boost vegetable production by introducing advanced cultivation technologies.

Hundreds of standardized arch-style, semi-arched and arched interlocking greenhouses are heated solely by solar energy.

They are furnished with solar panels and solar water heaters which help accelerate the growth of vegetables and increase their output.

The solar panels are used to operate a general greenhouse environment measuring device which monitors in real time the temperature, humidity, value of solar radiation and concentration of carbon dioxide in greenhouses, and the solar water heaters produce hot water to be used for hydroponic cultivation and growing of seedlings. The heat accumulating pipes installed on the walls are always filled with water, which is warmed up by the temperature in the greenhouses and used to grow vegetables.

The farm makes rational use of all possible spaces apart from the main areas. Basket- or box-type patches are seen on the interior walls of greenhouses and stair-style patches on the exterior walls.

It also produces some vegetables with different production cycles in a block by combining such tall vegetables as cucumber and tomato with intercrops.

The farm also developed nourishing solutions for growing crops.

“We have produced a large quantity of vegetables and supplied them to the citizens even in the top emergency anti-epidemic period,” said Cha Chol Jin, vice-chairman of the farm management board.
