    Pyongyang, March 14 (KCNA) -- A brisk campaign for rendering assistance to the countryside is being conducted in the DPRK. The ministries and national institutions stand in the van of the campaign in response to the joint New Year editorial calling for mobilizing and concentrating all the efforts to agriculture. They have sent a lot of farming materials including some 1,200 pieces in 28 kinds of tractor accessories and 79,900-odd pieces in 20 kinds of medium and small-sized farming implements and more than 24,400 tons of manure to rural communities.
    Officials of the Ministry of Food Procurement and Administration went out to the Sinhung Co-op Farm in Jungsan County, South Phyongan Province, and dug up over 1,000 tons of peat to carpet fields.
    And those of the Ministry of Post and Telecommunications and the Ministry of Machine-Building Industries acquainted themselves with farming preparations in relevant farms and provided them with the materials needed. Cities and counties of North Phyongan Province, who had already carried more than 955,000 tons of compost to co-op farms, have continued to help farmers increase fertility of paddy and non-paddy fields in the province with the resolution to yield a bumper crop this year.
    Cities, counties and industrial establishments in North Hamgyong Province have tapped the inner reserves to render assistance, moral and material, to the countryside. People in Musan County sent the farming materials including over 20 kinds of medium and small-sized farming implements to farms, energetically inspiring agricultural working people.
