Farm benefits from food production cycle

A food production cycle has been created in different parts of the country.

Of them, there is the one at the Sosin Vegetable Farm in Ryokpho District, Pyongyang.

“In order to sustainably increase cereal production, it is important to establish a food production cycle combining cereal and livestock farming so as to improve soil fertility. A compost heap means a heap of rice. We have pushed stockbreeding earnestly for several years,” said the farm manager.

It was hard to take the first step to stockbreeding, he recalled.

Great efforts were required to secure seeds, build animal sheds, solve the problem of feed and change farmers’ understanding.

The farm informed farmers of the advantages of the food production cycle while organizing visits to units benefiting from livestock farming.

Farmers took an active part in this effort with confidence.

High-yielding seeds were secured and sheds were newly built to meet actual conditions in a short time for the livestock workteam and fattening sub-workteams.

Many people are now visiting the farm to learn after the experience of stockbreeding at the farm with a solid foundation.

The farm's combined animal barn raises a lot of goats, pigs, chickens and ducks.

This not-so-big building turns out a large quantity of meat, eggs and milk annually.

The farm produces high-quality manure with animal faeces to spread it on every field.

As a result, the per-hectare yields of vegetables and cereals are steadily on the increase and the farm ranks high in agricultural production not only in the district but also in the city.
