N. Korean Leader Inspects Military Farm

North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has visited a farm affiliated with a military unit.
The North's official Korean Central News Agency(KCNA) said Saturday the leader visited Farm No. 1116 under the control of the Korean People's Army Unit 810 and toured a newly built research institution.
The field inspection is viewed as a gesture to appease the military ahead of the Chuseok thanksgiving holiday.
Inspecting the same farm in September last year, Kim had ordered the establishment of a high-tech agricultural and science think tank. 
In his latest visit, the young leader also coined a name for a new vegetable that succeeded in its trial cultivation. Noting its high productivity and rich nutrients, Kim named the crop "Danbaekcho" for having abundant protein. "Danbaek" refers to protein and "cho" means plant.
He also ordered the crop to be grown nationwide.
