Cho Jae-ho, head of the Rural Development Administration, said on the 19th, “We are working to develop technology that can stably produce field crops in rice paddies to improve food self-sufficiency and stabilize rice supply and demand.” Commissioner Cho visited the wheat and soybean cultivation area in Gimje, Jeollabuk-do and said, “If we cultivate double-cropped soybean ‘Seonyu No. 2’ at a density of 1.5 times higher than conventional, mechanization stability and quantity can be improved.” After harvesting wheat, he visited a place where soybeans were planted in double crops and examined the state of wheat cultivation. Next, we met with farmers at the collaborative research farm and reviewed technical support. Collaborative farms are farms selected by the Rural Development Administration to improve field applicability through research collaboration. Commissioner Cho said, “We will continue to promote collaborative research farms and field research so that newly developed ...
