It is said that farming is done for a year.

At the Fourth Plenary Meeting of the Eighth Central Committee of the Workers' Party of Korea held in December Juche 110(2021), the respected Comrade Kim Jong Un called for attaching special importance to this year's farming and bringing about good results.

2022 is the first year when the structure of grain production of the country was changed for the sustainable development of the agricultural production.

Ri Chong Il, Department Head of the Agricultural Commission, says:

"A year's farming depends on rice-transplantation.

Unfortunately, an emergency situation such as inroads of COVID-19 into our country was created as soon as the rice-transplantation started. It was too much for us.

There is a saying that one day in spring is like ten days in autumn. If we miss the right time for rice-transplantation, we cannot expect a good yield in autumn.

Just at the time, the respected General Secretary Kim Jong Un took specific measures for every work, production and living unit to work and produce in spite of tight closure.

So, the rice-transplantation was promoted as scheduled and finished in the main on a nationwide scale on June 10. And the farming of wheat and barley planted as first crops could be finished with success."

The Democratic People's Republic of Korea is also affected by the disastrous abnormal weather which has been lasting in recent years. This year witnessed several warnings against severe drought and much rain and strong wind fraught with downpour.

Kim Jong Un showed an orientation and ways to minimize any damages caused by the disastrous abnormal weather, making it a fait accompli.

He ensured that advanced farming techniques needed for establishing scientific farming system and method were studied and applied and took necessary measures to make preparations for harvesting and next year's farming according to a well thought-out plan.

He paid special attention to making South Hwanghae Province, the largest province for farming in the country, take the van in the agricultural production.

In May and June last, he sent medicines he prepared with his family to the people in South Hwanghae Province playing a big role in agriculture on two occasions so that they could get over the illness as soon as possible. He also made painstaking efforts to provide the local agricultural workers with more farm machines.

As a result, 5,500 farm machines of different kinds were sent to South Hwanghae Province on September 25.

South Hwanghae Province finished harvesting and threshing with those farm machines in a short span of time and it is directing efforts to making preparations for next year's farming.

In order to make ours a country with superfluous rice, Kim Jong Un has been always concerned about farming together with the agricultural workers while frequently learning about farming throughout the year; deep at night and early in the morning.
