On January 17, 1973, North Korean leader Kim Il Sung, delivered a speech entitled “Bringing about a great conversion in agricultural production” at the agreement meeting of agricultural workers.
A Korean colleague of ours (he is a tour guide but was mobilised to work at a farm during the low season) told us: “Following this, he is credited as giving on-site guidance to cooperative farms across the country, from soil management to plant variety allocation, sowing, seedbed management, transplanting, corn cultivation in nutrition parks, water management , and directly guided all agricultural projects such as fertilisation”.
Through this process, the main agricultural law was born and systematised.
The man is wearing the commemorative Medal of the Three-Revolution Red Flag Movement.
Note: Propaganda is crafted across various studios throughout North Korea. The most renowned manifestation of this is in propaganda posters. In response to the fascination and interest expressed by visitors who accompanied us on Koryo Tours, we have produced meticulously hand-painted replicas of existing posters. We also aim to display originals here for those with an artistic or academic interest. The original propaganda posters are part of the Koryo Studio Collection and are not for sale. Please note that the original propaganda posters were created prior to 2015 and have no affiliation whatsoever with any officially sanctioned entity or artist.
