Thanks to the tireless efforts of Kim Jong Il precious experience was gained in scientific farming and examples were set in potato farming, double cropping and bean farming, socialist spectacular sceneries in the era of Songun such as autumnal landscape in Migok Plain and landscape in the Taedonggang Combined Fruit Farm were unfolded and ideal villages were built in different parts of the country last year, he noted.

He underscored the need to successfully honor the plan for agricultural production by putting spurs to it once again this year and smoothly settle the food shortage of the country, the food problem of the people.
