Rice Grown in North Korea Arrives in Incheon

Choson Ilbo

Two tons of rice cultivated on North Korean soil with help from South Korean agriculture experts has reached the South’s port city of Incheon.

The rice came from a one-hundred-hectare field near Pyongyang planted with a mix of South and North Korean rice last year. The paddy yielded over 50,000 tons of rice and the shipment that arrived in Incheon was of the South Korean variety. It will be donated to a number of welfare groups as well as civilians who were displaced during the Korean War.

The project is one of several agricultural and cultural exchanges run by Gyeonggi Province which signed an agreement to cooperate with North Korea in 2004.
