The Jangchon Vegetable Cooperative Farm in Sadong District, Pyongyang, the capital city of the DPRK, plays a big role in improving the citizens’ diet.
The farm consisting of 100-odd blocks of semi-vaulted and vaulted greenhouses has produced hundreds of tons of vegetables per hectare annually through 4-6 cropping. It also produces 100-odd more tons of vegetables by installing plastic baskets and column tubes in spaces of the greenhouses.
Among the cultivated vegetables are new species of nutritive vegetables like mallow, tanbaekcho and chive.
The modernization of the farm would have been unthinkable without the devoted efforts of Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un.
In June Juche 103 (2014), the Supreme Leader went round various places of the farm to learn in detail about vegetable farming. The farm is associated with the traces of President Kim Il Sung and Chairman Kim Jong Il who had always worked heart and soul to provide the citizens with fresh vegetables.
He gave detailed instructions on developing the vegetable cultivation technology, providing vegetable seeds and raising the productivity by putting the greenhouse vegetable cultivation on a scientific and intensive basis of higher level. And he took a revolutionary step to turn the farm into a better socialist cultural village.
The farm is now taking the lead in the country’s greenhouse vegetable production.
