Participating in Study Tour on Advanced Agriculture in Fukushima
In 28-29 November 2019, we participated in the tour of the “Advanced Agricultural Inspection course” hosted by the Fukushima Innovation Coast Plan Promotion Organization.
On Tour, agricultural recovery by using ICT (Iitate village), research for restart of farming (Minami-Soma city), the country elevator which manages the dry-storage-shipment process of rice (Naraha town), the domestic banana cultivation plant (Hirono town), large-scale strawberry factory (Okuma town), the LED light-used vegetable factory (Kawauchi village), and the flower “Kochoran” factory which used the temperature management by AI (Katsurao village).
In Fukushima prefecture, we were able to confirm that a new agricultural initiative aimed at reconstruction after the nuclear power accident was on going, and we are very lucky to know it in the field.
At the same time, I should think and monitor of the future sustainability of these business that is using government subsidies, how to create good relationship with the local community including the return of the displaced, and how to realize agricultural innovation in Fukushima for the international level in the future.
If you are interested in those advanced agriculture sites, please tell us. We try to arrange the study tour with the Fukushima Innovation Coast Plan Promotion Organization.
