Brassica oleracea L. convar. botrytis (L.) Alef. var. cymosa Duch. x Brassica oleracea L. var. sabellica L.
The original vegetables are kale; borecole and broccoli. Since the origin of broccoli is Italy and the origin of kale is Turkey, it seems that it was named to be a fashionable name with a foreign style. Also, since it was developed in Mie Prefecture, it is also distributed under the names “Mie greens” and “Mie brassica napus”.
On March 11, 2022, the 8th day of the Beijing Olympics, Ms. Momoka MURAOKA from Fukaya City, Saitama Prefecture, won the gold medal, which is the third honorary record of the tournament, in the sitting and sliding class of the Alpine Skiing Women’s University. In a giant slalom competing for a total of two times, she took the first place in second place, faced the second time in the afternoon, developed a good time run from the beginning with skillful chair ski operation, and was in first place in the first time. Reversed Chinese Liǔ shí tán player. This is the second gold medal in Giant Slalom following the previous Pyeongchang Games, and this is the third crown following Downhill and Super-G. Muraoka, who won the fourth gold medal in the Winter Paralympics, will face the alpine skiing women’s turn on March 12 with the fifth gold medal. Let’s support the whole of Japan. The Fukaya Agricultural Cooperative supports the purpose of the “Children’s Support Network Saitama” whose secretariat is the prefecture, and has been actively working to support children’s whereabouts, such as donating fresh vegetables to the children’s cafeteria. There seems to be. It seems that the warehouse is rented out to the Saitama Food Pantry Network free of charge as a further support measure for groups working for children in the area. The only daily meal is school lunch. I always eat dinner alone. For financial reasons, I can’t go on a school trip and can’t participate in club activities. I can’t attend a cram school, and my chances of going on to higher education are narrowed. Due to the family environment in which the children grew up, there are many children who are unable to live a “normal” life, give up what they want to do, and feel lonely. However, it seems that many adults are asking, Is there such a child in this era? Children’s poverty is hard to see and cannot be noticed, and there are many things that have been overlooked. The awareness of adults is the first step in changing the difficult situation surrounding children. Children are “an important treasure of society” and the next generation of bearers. In order to be a society with hope for the future, it is important that the future of children is not influenced by the environment in which they were born and raised. Children cannot choose the “environment in which they are born”. It’s true, and it’s clear that it will affect your educational background. You cannot change the “environment where you grow up” yourself. It is also difficult to say help by yourself. Childhood poverty has a negative impact on adult income and employment status, creating what is known as the “chain of poverty” that will be passed down to the next generation. Narrowing children’s potential through poverty is a huge loss to both themselves and society. It is our responsibility as adults to protect children so that they can spend their days with peace of mind and smiles. Under these circumstances, efforts to “create a place for children” such as children’s cafeterias, free cram schools, and play parks, which are trying to help children around us, are spreading in various ways with the help of local people. That’s it. It seems that the people in the area who noticed the existence of children who could not live a natural life started thinking about what they could do. Everyone enjoys eating delicious rice. Know the joy of learning. Get in touch with many adults and friends. And, through these experiences, I regain the confidence that I can do it. By involving children in the community, children acquire the power to open up their lives, and adults receive a lot of energy from their smiles. Children’s Support Network Saitama: A network of organizations, companies and individuals engaged in social contribution activities to eliminate the chain of poverty. It seems that Saitama Prefecture will jointly launch with the founder. It seems that we aim to create a society where all children can become wonderful adults with opportunities and hopes by making the best use of the fields that the members are good at and thinking and doing what they can do for themselves. JA Fukaya is one of the leading broccoli producing areas in Japan. Broccoli consumption seems to be increasing while fresh vegetable consumption is flat to declining. The acreage and shipment volume have also reached record highs since 2018, and both production and consumption are increasing. Saitama Prefecture seems to have the fourth largest shipment of broccoli in Japan and the third largest agricultural output in Japan. Agriculture is widely practiced in the suburbs of large consumption areas. In addition to broccoli, spinach and taro are the most shipped in Japan, turnips, Japanese mustard spinach, green onions are second, and cucumbers are third. (Achievements in 2019). The agricultural output of vegetables is the 8th largest in the country, and it seems to account for 47% of the total agricultural output of the prefecture. Broccoli production is particularly active in Saitama Prefecture, under the jurisdiction of Fukaya Agricultural Cooperative, which has jurisdiction over Fukaya City and Yorii Town in the northwestern part of the prefecture. JA Harusawa (JA Zenno Saitama brand “Saishoku Bijin”), which was in the jurisdiction of the former Hanzawa village in Fukaya city, which is one of the leading broccoli producing areas in Japan, has been certified by all broccoli farmers in the jurisdiction since 1990. It seems that the production was done using the compost provided by the beef cattle fattening farmer. The compost is not sprayed individually by the broccoli farmer, but the required amount for each farmer in the jurisdiction is collected and sprayed (operator). ). The operator sprays ripe compost, which is made by fermenting cow manure discharged from a local beef broccoli farmer for about a year, using a special machine called a manual spreader. For broccoli farmers, the input of compost improves the drainage of the field and increases the sweetness, which improves the quality of broccoli, and for livestock farmers, the sale of compost has the advantage of covering the cost of manure processing. It seems that it merged with in April 2019 to become the largest broccoli producing area in eastern Japan. National highway No. 17, JR Takasaki line, and Joetsu Shinkansen run through the jurisdiction from east to west, and it is within 75 km from Tokyo, so it is convenient for transportation, and the entire area seems to be in a flat and blessed location. It was a sericulture area until the 1965s, but it seems that the sericulture industry was forced to change due to the decline of the silk reeling industry due to the raw silk market. Therefore, taking the opportunity of land infrastructure development from 1973 to 1978, he improved the land and promoted the cultivation of open-field vegetables for paddy field conversion along with the conversion from sericulture. When selecting the crops to be introduced, it seems that broccoli was selected by repeating market inspections and market research and searching for items whose demand will grow in the future. In the 1985s, we built a vacuum pre-cooling facility to expand shipments, while excavating excellent varieties, side-packing 8 kg boxes for labor saving from the latter half of October during the farming season, and dispensing until then is possible. It seems that it has taken advanced activities ahead of other production areas, such as improving the efficiency of shipping by properly using corrugated cardboard and distributing fruit selection tables to producers, such as vertically packed 4 kg boxes. Broccoli is a vegetable that eats buds (flower buds), so its freshness deteriorates quickly. Since the respiration of flower buds is intense, it is difficult to control the temperature, and if not properly controlled, the flower buds will quickly turn yellow and deteriorate. For this reason, when the temperature is high, it seems that a freshness-preserving bag is placed inside the cardboard to perform vacuum pre-cooling to cool the core of the flower buds so that the freshness does not drop to the sales floor. I hear that these efforts have now established a broccoli producing area that is one of the best in Japan in terms of quality. In addition to being close to the metropolitan area, the northwestern part of Saitama Prefecture has many sunny days and fertile soil, making it a suitable area for broccoli cultivation. We are making further efforts to improve quality. A variety comparison field designated by the Saitama Prefecture Headquarters of the National Federation of Agricultural Cooperatives has been set up in the jurisdiction, and it seems that various varieties are being cultivated on a trial basis. It seems that Zennoh Saitama, seedling makers, related organizations, JAs and producers from all over the prefecture participate in the study meeting three times a year. At JA Fukaya, based on these results, producers play a central role in discussions, reviewing varieties every year, and introducing better varieties. It seems that the newly selected varieties will spread throughout Saitama prefecture in a few years. So to speak, it seems to be a “breed transmission base” that produces “the tip of the epidemic of species”. Broccoli cultivation in Saitama Prefecture seems to have two main types: spring-summer and autumn-winter. Before planting each crop type, soil analysis is always conducted for each field, fertilization guidance sessions are held twice a year, and individual interviews are held with farmers of spring broccoli and autumn / winter broccoli twice a year. It seems that they are trying to achieve high-level cultivation by thoroughly instructing them according to the cultivation calendar. JA Fukaya seems to recommend that producers use organic fertilizers such as compost, recognizing that “increasing soil fertility improves crop quality”. It seems that it acts as an intermediary between livestock farmers and vegetable farmers in the area so that a lot of compost can be used. It seems that such efforts have significantly increased the distribution of compost in the region. Zen-Noh Saitama ships and sells vegetables produced under the following conditions under the “Saishoku Bijin（Requirements for rapeseed beauty type 1 (JA Zen-Noh Saitama standard product / prefecture certified product): JA and the producer establish the following cultivation agreements by region and item. Unify varieties, sowing, and planting for each cropping type. Clarify soil preparation measures and main materials (50% reduction from local standards for chemical fertilizers). Conducting soil diagnosis and holding fertilization consultation meetings. Based on the cultivation agreement, we will unify and jointly purchase production and shipping materials (fertilizers, pesticides, seeds, cardboard, etc.). The producer keeps a production control book for cultivation outline, fertilization, and control. Producers strive for planned production and planned shipment based on the cultivation agreement. Shipped products shall be based on the specified standard selection criteria. In particular (it seems that all producers in the jurisdiction are obliged to input compost in order to clarify the main materials for soil preparation measures and to meet the requirement of 50% reduction from the local standard for chemical fertilizers.）” brand mentioned earlier. Some producers receive this designation and ship it as branded vegetables. Vegetables under the “Saishoku Bijin” brand seem to be highly evaluated by the market and mass retailers. Unify the variety, sowing time, and planting time for each cropping type. Clarify the main materials (50% reduction in local standard costs for chemical fertilizers), conduct soil diagnosis and hold fertilizer application guidance sessions. Unify fertilizers, pesticides, seeds, etc. based on the cultivation agreement. Cultivation outline, fertilization, and production control bookkeeping for control. It seems that the shipped products will be based on the specified standard selection criteria. Connection of natural resources: Straw and harvest waste after harvesting agricultural products such as rice and vegetables feed livestock, and compost is made from the manure of the livestock, and the compost grows agricultural products. In this way, the activity of producing agricultural products while circulating organic resources is an ideal agricultural system that maintains fertility and is highly sustainable. However, the dependence on chemical fertilizers and pesticides has increased, and in some areas the cultivated land has become thinner year by year due to the extreme depletion of organic substances such as compost. The question is whether agriculture that supports our food can be sustained in the future. Under these circumstances, there are movements in various regions to effectively utilize livestock and agricultural waste as local organic resources and to work on environment-friendly and sustainable agriculture, so-called resource-recycling agriculture. I heard that. “Fukaya City, Saitama Prefecture”, The 9th post station of 69 Stations of the Nakasendo（A highway that was developed along with the other four highways (Tokaido, Nikko Highway, Oshu Highway, Koshu Highway) in the seven years from 1601.）, counting from Edo: Fukaya-juku. It has the Hanazono IC on the Kanetsu Expressway and Route 17, and is a key point of transportation to the city center and the Chichibu area. Utilizing the fertile land formed by the Tone and Arakawa rivers, it is famous as one of the prefecture’s leading agricultural areas. Production of vegetables, chicken eggs, flowers（The production of cut flowers of lilies and tulips is one of the highest in the country.）, etc. is thriving. Mr. Eichi Shibusawa: November, the aniversary of Eichi’s death, was specified as Eichi SHIBUSAWA memorial month in Fukaya City and some events are held every year. It is also known as his fabric that laid the foundation of the modern Japanese economy. Founded First National Bank (currently Mizuho Bank, Limited) in 1873 which is Japan’s first national bank (Meiji period). It’s a well-known story. Besides, there are several related facilities in the city, including a memorial hall.Image character: Born on June 28, 2010, “Fukka-chan” is now widely loved across generations. In the New Year of 2006, Fukaya City, Okabe, Kawamoto and Hanazono were born together. Located in the northwestern part of Saitama prefecture, 70 km from central Tokyo. Kumagaya City in the east, Ranzan town and Yorii town in the south. To the west is Misato town and Honjo City. The north borders Ota City and Isesaki City in Gunma Prefecture. The northern part of the city is a lowland of the Tone River system. The southern part is a flat terrain where the Arakawa River flowing from the Chichibu Mountains forms a fan-shaped plateau. There is a lot of precipitation from summer to autumn, and in winter the monsoon from the north is strong and dry. Along with the characteristics of the climate on the Pacific side, it also has the characteristics of an inland climate. For this reason, the difference in average temperature between summer and winter is large, and it is hot during the day and cool at night. In this area where the temperature difference is large during the day, there are many thunderstorms, and I hear that thunderstorms are one of the causes of high rainfall in summer. Famous for its nationwide brand of fresh vegetables such as onions（leek）, broccoli, and corn. Blessed natural environment such as Arakawa and Tonegawa, where swans fly. It has various cultural heritage such as Seishido（In 2003, it was a national important cultural property.）and Seifutei. In 2004, it was designated as a tangible cultural property designated by Saitama Prefecture. Asakusa Shrine（Taito Ward, Tokyo）: Due to the Shinto and Buddhist decree issued by the Meiji government, the company name was changed to Sansha Myo Shrine in 1868, the shrine was listed as a town shrine in 1872, and sochinju (local Shinto) in Asakusa township in 1873. It seems that it was designated as the current Asakusa Shrine as deity). Even now, it seems that the shrine parishioners are familiar with the “three companies” because of their remnants. Takabatake rice harvesting was held at Asakusa Shrine “Mikanda” in Fukaya City, Saitama Prefecture. The rice planted in June grew well and reached a fruitful autumn. We appreciate the blessings of nature and experience the joy of interacting with the soil and the joy of harvesting. From the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries Variety Registration Homepage (Japanese name: Broccoli variant × Kale Saverica variant) Name of registered variety Aletta: Variety name at the time of publication of application Application number 21692, date of application 2007/11/16, date of publication of application 2008/03/04, Registration number 20556, Registration date 2011/03/15, Duration of breeder’s right 25 years, Extinction date of breeder’s right Name and address of variety registrant, Atsushi Higashimura (Yatomi City, Aichi Prefecture) Shimoroku, Uguiura Town: Representative Director of Nacos Co., Ltd., Mr. Atsushi 東村, Inaba Town, Tsu City, Mie Prefecture): Name of the person who bred the registered varieties, Mr. Yusuke 東村. Leaf color is dark green, yes axis color is medium purple, grass height is medium, stem thickness is thick, stem length is medium, side branch development is medium, total number of leaves is extremely large, leaf length Slightly long, leaf wide, leaf shape obovate, leaf tip shape round, leaf curve flat, leaf edge wavy, leaf edge notch less, leaf color dark green, leaf pigment Light and waxy are medium, the shape of the flower sphere is round, the unevenness of the flower sphere is medium, the weight of the flower sphere is small, the diameter of the flower sphere is extremely small, the height of the flower sphere is medium, and the basics of the flower sphere. The color is green, the flower-like bulb green division is green, the flower-like grain size is medium, the occurrence of leafy leaves is small, the length of the flower-like bulb stem is quite short, the thickness of the flower-like bulb stem is quite thin, The color of the flower-like bulb stem is light green, the greenness of the inner stem of the flower-like bulb is light green, the occurrence of side branch flower-like leaves is frequent, and the harvest period is extremely late. The application cultivar “Aletta” is distinguished from the control cultivar “Sticksenor” by the fact that the color of the hypocotyl is medium purple and the harvest time is extremely late. Compared to the control variety “Green Voice”, the color of the hypocotyl is medium purple, and the harvest time is extremely late, which makes it distinctive. It is characterized by its rich sweetness, beautiful dark green color, fearlessly shaped buds, and elongated stems. In the middle and warm regions, it tends to grow in the cold from seeds to autumn and winter in summer, and buds are attached to the side branches one after another. It has a richer sweetness than nabana, and is useful as a versatile vegetable that can be eaten not only with buds but also with leaves and stems.
FUKAYA is famous for producing delicious vegetables such as green onions and broccoli. Aletta (navanas), which has recently appeared, is an excellent Brassicaceae vegetable that can be eaten with leaves, stems, and flower buds, made by crossing broccoli and kale. Compared to broccoli, there are few places to throw away, and the buds contain about three times as much carotene and vitamin K, which is kind to the body. It also contains more calcium, potassium and vitamin A. The taste is not habitual, and you can enjoy a wide range of cooking uses such as dish dressed with sesame sauce, fried food, tempura, and stew. Every year from November to March, it seems that agricultural products that the producers have worked hard on are sold at JA Fukaya and direct sales offices Gurumai House and Kawamoto Agricultural Products etc.
From Fukaya City to Chichibu City via Prefectural Road 62, Nishi-Kanto Road, and National Road 140. JA Chichibu Agricultural and Economic Affairs Department seems to have confirmed the growth status of contract cultivation of garlic, which is the first attempt of this year, in the Chichibu area on March 23, 2017, one year before the corona disaster. It seems that some contract farmers rent idle farmland and grow garlic. It seems that JA staff and three JA Zennoh SAITAMA staff visited each field of the contract farmer and confirmed the growth status and the management status of the field. In 2017, although there was insufficient rainfall, it seems that most of the fields were growing well. The area seems to be suitable for growing garlic. In addition, the garlic cultivated by consignment cultivation from JA Zennoh SAITAMA Fruit and Vegetable Station was provided by the contractor. The variety seems to be “Katei (Shanghai)”, which has a strong scent and is close to the original species. At that time, 11 farmers seemed to cultivate it at about 54.5 a.
On November 14, 1992 (Prefectural Citizen’s Day), “Sai no Kuni” was selected as the nickname of Saitama Prefecture in order to increase familiarity and attachment to Saitama. “SAI” is a word that expresses color and beauty, and seems to describe Saitama Prefecture, a diverse country that is blessed with colorful nature in each season and develops in various fields such as industry, culture, and academia. The “Sai no Kuni Campaign Mark” was selected on November 14, 1993 to further popularize the nickname. This mark expresses the image of three people holding their hands, crossing their shoulders, and trying to move forward happily and energetically. Each color is full of dreams (blue, full of energy (red), and nature. I’ve heard from a friend of the prefecture that a lot represents (green).
