종자혁명은 농업생산력증대의 필요성으로 부터 2001년 1월 1일 《당·군·청년보》 신년 공동사설에서 제시되였다.국토의 많은 부분이 산림으로 덮여있어 토양이 비옥하지 않은 땅에서도 잘 자라는 종자혁명을 강조하고 있다.

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.
