There is a vegetable research and production base with a hundred and tens of hectares of area in Pyongyang, the capital of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea. It is the Pyongyang Vegetable Science Institute under the Academy of Agricultural Science.
The institute has been fully equipped with modern hydroponic hothouses and vinyl sheet hothouses whose processes are controlled by computer and with latest facilities for research of bioengineering. It has put the greenhouse vegetable farming on a highly scientific and intensive footing, producing hundreds of tons of vegetables per hectare.
The respected Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un gave field guidance to the institute several times so that it could be built into a leading vegetable research and production base.
He visited it in September Juche 101 (2012) and in July Juche 104 (2015), when he was very pleased, saying it is really wonderful and it seems to be a sea of greenhouses.
Ri Myong Song, Vice-Director of the Pyongyang Vegetable Science Institute under the Academy of Agricultural Science, says:
“In fact, the change of our institute is unthinkable apart from the wise guidance of the respected Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un.
At the beginning of the capacity expansion project he saw that all necessary conditions were provided and learning about it frequently, solved all problems.
Thanks to his meticulous guidance, our institute could be built into a leading greenhouse vegetable research and production base with all conditions.”
The Korean people can never forget the painstaking efforts of Kim Jong Un who visited the institute time and again as he was so pleased to learn that it can produce different kinds of tasty and nutritious vegetables in all seasons.
