Movements to Secure Fertilizer

The North Korean authorities since the beginning of this year have accelerated securing fertilizers under the slogan ‘agriculture focused line’. There have been orders ‘to keep good exporting of feces activities’ by the North Korean authorities to various regions of the Rural Management Committees of the People’s Unit.

The inside source which viewed this information told the Daily NK on the 26th, “There have been orders to proactively collect farm manure to export by mobilizing personnels to actively participate in this movement”.

The source said, “In conjunction with the farm fertilizer project there have been reports to send used agricultural tools to the farms to help production”, continued, “Apply pressure to reach 700 million tons of grain crops to successfully achieving the preparation for farming.”

North Korea annually following the New Year’s accomplishment address has secured goods and engaged in these fertilizer movements to increase agricultural production. This has been called the first battle of the New Year. The main objective every year was for the people to secure farm equipment, plastics and procuring half ton of feces per person.

And therefore there are competitions among the people to secure feces. The feces amount each person have to secure for agricultural support is limited, people are waiting around in their neighbor home’s bathrooms to secure these fertilizers.

North Korea’s manure checks are very strict. Organized by the city, the members weigh the manure that is collected and give to each resident a confirmed certificate that they did what they were told to do so.

A North Korean defector explained, “North Korea expects 500kg of manure per person” continued, “because there is not enough for everyone generally 200-300kg of feces are created mixed with Nittan found at mountains in a ratio of 1:3.”

The Sources said, “Because Comrade Kim Jong Eun has particular interest in agriculture production, there is an atmosphere to prompt enforcement”, “And because of this agriculture production might increase and some are also hoping that maybe food problems will become better this year”.
