Kim Jong Un Gives Field Guidance to Farm No. 1116 under KPA Unit
Supreme Commander of the Korean People's Army (KPA) Kim Jong Un, first secretary of the Workers' Party of Korea and first chairman of the National Defence Commission of the DPRK, gave field guidance to the Farm No. 1116 under KPA Unit 810.
He said that he came here, very pleased to be told about grass for fodder the farm is cultivating on an experimental basis.
He was very satisfied to see for a long while the grass to be used as fodder growing tall in the field.
It is laudable that the farm succeeded in cultivating nutritious and high-yielding grass on an experimental basis, he noted, naming it "Aegukpul".
He learned in detail about the nutritional feature of the grass and method of its cultivation.
The grass is good for feeding cattle, goats, sheep, rabbits, geese, pigs and other livestock and it can be used as substrate for cultivating mushroom as it contains a lot of crude protein and a sufficient amount of various kinds of microelements, he stressed.
In order to raise grass-eating animals in a big way it is necessary to create grassland under a long-term plan and, at the same time, widely cultivate high-yielding grass, he said, underscoring the need to wage a dynamic drive to widely propagate "Aegukpul" across the country.
He looked at bean crops and high-yielding corn species now under cultivation at the farm on an experimental basis.
The farm is a model, standard bearer and vanguard in carrying out the party's policy for bringing about a radical turn in seed improvement, he noted, adding that it shows eye-opening successes whenever he visits it after hearing exciting news and the longer he goes round the farm, the dearer it looks.
He underlined the need to let leading officials of the Party Central Committee, ministries, national institutions and provinces, cities and counties visit this farm so that they may clearly learn how they should implement the party's policy for bringing about a radical turn in seed improvement.
He expressed expectation and belief that officials, party members and working people of the farm would creditably perform their honorable mission and duty, bearing deep in mind their pride and honor of working on the experimental farm of the Party Central Committee and thus always take the lead in the drive for decisively settling the people's food problem.
