Pyongyang, May 18 (KCNA) -- Rice-transplanting started in the rural areas of the DPRK.

Officials and working people in the field of agriculture have turned out as one in the rice-transplanting campaign, an important farming process to attain the goal of grain production this year.

The agricultural workers in South Hwanghae Province have buckled down to the rice-transplanting after growing healthy rice seedlings despite the unfavorable weather, finishing the overhaul of farming machines, etc. to make full preparations.

The agricultural workers in North Hwanghae Province fulfill their daily quotas by giving priority to drawing water into rice paddies and harrowing fields while bringing the removal of rice seedlings from seedbeds and their transportation in step with other processes.

Farms in cities and counties of North Phyongan Province transplant rice seedlings in hundreds of hectares every day by properly setting the rice-transplanting season and concentrating all forces on rice transplanting.

The farms in Pyongyang effect a collective innovation while actively introducing advanced scientific farming methods and ensuring speed and quality in rice-transplanting.

The agricultural workers in South Hamgyong Province and Nampho City busy themselves with rice-transplanting while increasing the proportion of farm work done by machines and ensuring the correct numbers of rice seedlings per phyong and per clump. -0-
