Annual grain production in North Korea remains nearly the same as the early-1970s, and the amount of available food per person in the country has dropped approximately 40 percent compared to 40 years ago, according to data from a United Nations food agency.

The total grain production amassed was 4.52 million tons in 2010, which is almost the same amount as four decades ago, as reported by the Food and Agriculture Organization on the Statistics Korea’s website.
