President Moon Jae-in said on the 26th Farmers’ Day on the 11th that “Although the climate crisis and supply chain crisis are also affecting agriculture, the government will do its best to make our agriculture more competitive.” It is interpreted as referring to a situation in which concerns about the supply and demand of urea fertilizers are rising along with the recent shortage of urea water. President Moon said through SNS on the same day, “There has been no easy year in farming, but the hard work of farmers this year was greater due to corona, abnormal climate, and bird flu. Thanks to this, we were able to protect the economy and quarantine along with safe food,” he said. President Moon continued, “Although the climate crisis and supply chain crisis are also affecting agriculture, the government will do its best to make our agriculture more competitive. We will also speed up management advancement and consumption promotion.” The supply chain crisis along with the difficulty of growing crops due to the climate crisis is interpreted as a statement that the supply chain will be well prepared for agricultural supplies, such as urea, which has recently been in short supply. Earlier, urea fertilizer ran out in some Nonghyup nationwide. However, the Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs explained, “There is an aspect that difficulties in supply and demand have been aggravated due to the demand for fertilizers.” President Moon also said, “In preparation for carbon neutrality, we will actively support the creation of eco-friendly agricultural districts, expansion of distribution networks in mountainous areas, and creation of clean livestock farms. We will work together to create attractive jobs and jobs with sufficient income.” Last year, the number of return-to-farm households reached 357,000, the highest since the statistical survey, and about 1,400 households in their 30s or younger returned to the farm. President Moon said, “We plan to establish a second comprehensive plan to support returning to rural areas in December.” Reporter Lee Wan [email protected]
