North Korean fruit and vegetable growers suffer from unseasonably low temperatures

North Korean fruit and vegetable growers have suffered damage to their crops due to unseasonably low temperatures in March and April. Orchards in Kaechon, Yangdok, Pukchang and mountainous areas in South Pyongan Province have experienced serious crop damage, causing growing anxiety among farmers. The damage was especially bad in Kaechon and Pukchang. In Kaechon, orchard work teams at just about every farm reported seeing damage.

Fruit trees bloomed prematurely due to unusually high temperatures in March, and then temperatures dropped dramatically in April. It seems that this extreme fluctuation in the weather is the reason behind the widespread crop damage.
