The City Rural Economy Committee took such practical measures as the introduction of advanced methods for culture of seedlings whereby to raise healthy seedlings in less seedbeds. And a work is being conducted to remodel rice-transplanting machines in keeping with the extensive introduction of humus-potted seedlings.
