Local Production of Terracottem Realized in DPRK
Pyongyang, May 17 (KCNA) -- A research group of Kim Il Sung University in the DPRK succeeded in local production of Terracottem, a highly effective agent for land amelioration and moisture keeping.

The group developed a new inorganic compound in substitution for acrylamide, an essential element of Terracottem, and settled scientific problems to use it in liquid condition.

It also found a method of mass-refining acrylic acid, a main component of Terracottem.

The newly-developed Terracottem helps raise the rooting rate of saplings up to over 90 percent and grow trees healthier with less consumption of water and manpower.

The use of fertilizer coated with this agent can considerably increase the yield of crops while reducing the fertilizer consumption 40 percent and manpower one third.
