JA Namegata Shiosai seems to have presented a traffic safety hat and an original contact book to new students in Kashima City, Ibaraki Prefecture on March 29, 2022. The contact book introduces the special product map in the JA jurisdiction and how to cook rice with illustrations so that even first graders can understand. It seems that it has been done since last year to make agriculture widely known. I think it’s a great attempt in the daily reality of the Declining birthrate and aging population, or the Low birthrate and aging society. This is because agriculture, which is the primary industry, is the basis of the economy in the region. From an early age, I would like to pray for the greatness of adults such as parents, grandfathers, grandmothers, and farmers in the neighborhood, and to be able to live in a healthy society. I hope that young people and young children will come closer to Japan where they can live safely and securely. Japanese politics is slow from the top down anyway. The saying goes, not getting a reply. If we are looking for the future in Japan, where there is little sense of crisis, I would like to ask you to take good care of your relatives so that you can survive in this era strongly, and I would like to make a compliment here. In JA Namegata Shiosai jurisdiction, water dropwort, lotus root, facility gardening strawberry and cucumber are cultivated as paddy fields, and in the upland farming area, land use type management by sweet potato and gobo, mizuna green, bok choy, Echalet, Japanese hornwort, edible chrysanthemum, spinach and other lightweight vegetables, year-round shipping-type management, and Ooba-only management, producing more than 80 kinds of vegetables annually, supporting the foundation of Japanese agriculture. As a result, it seems that it is playing a role as a multi-item supply base for fresh food, taking advantage of the area 70 kilometers from the consumption area in the metropolitan area. Established in September 2005 by the merger of Aso Town, Tamatsukuri Town, and Kitaura Town. The city of whereabouts is located in the southeastern part of Ibaraki Prefecture, surrounded by Nishiura and Kitaura in Kasumigaura. It is an area with soil. Hitachi Province (Ibaraki Prefecture) was established by the Taika Reform of 645CE, and there are only five Fudoki in Japan that describe the situation at that time: Hitachi Province, Harima Province, Bizen Province, Bungo Province, and Izumo Province. There is already a description of the whereabouts area in. The city is a region with a warm and mild climate due to the blessings of Kasumigaura and Mt. Tsukuba. In addition, mellow land was formed from many rivers flowing into Kasumigaura. The whereabouts area is a famous place where various agricultural products can be produced regardless of the crop. The sun, water, abundant soil, and areas that have benefited a lot from nature form an industrial system centered on the agriculture, livestock and fisheries industry. As a result, many agricultural, livestock and fishery products can be shipped throughout the year, and it is possible to stably supply foodstuffs to the metropolitan area (consumption area). More than 60 kinds of various products (rice, vegetables, meat (pork, beef, chicken), chicken eggs, river fish) are stably shipped to the Tokyo area throughout the year. In particular, the items with the highest yields are sweet potatoes, potatoes, mizuna, and auction, which maintain the highest yields in Japan. “Hitachi no Kuni Fudoki (description of the culture, climate, etc. of Hitachi province; approx. 720 CE)” : Hitachi is a good country with a large country, far mountains, fertile fields, and cultivated Rangeland. Blessed with the blessings of the sea and mountains, the people are at ease and the houses are full. There is no poor man who cultivates rice fields and spins threads. You can get salt in the mountains on the left and fish in the sea on the right. In addition, Kuwahara（Mulberry field）spreads in the rear field, and hemp is cultivated in the front field. It is a place rich in the fruits of Umikawa Yamano no（海川山野之）. However, since there are few high-quality paddy fields (many wetlands), seedlings may not grow if long rains continue. With just the right amount of sunshine, the grain is rich enough. On May 2; 甲子, 713; 和銅6年, Empress Genmei issued an official order to promote Fudoki to the whole country. At this time, the title “Fudoki” was not official, and it was only an order to submit the customs geography of each country together. After that, in the Heian period, Kiyotsura Miyoshi’s “Twelve Articles of Opinion Sealing”, Kinmochi Yatabe’s “Nihon Shoki Shiki”, and “Fudoki” in 925, etc. It is believed that in the Heian period, it came to be called by the generic name “Fudoki”. The official order of Fudoki is, “Write your favorite characters for the names of the counties of the seven provinces of Kinai. And record the story of the land, the reason for the name of Yamakawa Wilderness, and the old story of the old man’s biography.” To make this official order easier to understand, the name of the county town is written in a favorable character (two kanji characters), a list of minerals such as silver and copper, plants, animals, fish, and insects in the county, the fertile state of the land, the place name of the mountain river wilderness. It describes the origin and the old story that the old man tells. In each country, it is probable that the survey was conducted on a county-by-county basis and submitted by each gunji; district governor (Ritsuryo period: Various institutional designs for running the country are carried out within the legal framework of the Ritsuryo. For example, if it is a famous policy of the Nara period, the state will distribute the cultivated land “allotment of rice paddies for cultivation during the cultivator’s lifetime : The basis of the ancient land system” and “Taxes in kind or service system” to collect taxes from each individual. Province-district-neighbourhood administrative divisions: The whole country was divided into more than 60 countries, and the country was further divided into counties and counties into villages. In the village, 2 to 20 village is one county. The country sends a policy officer (under the ritsuryo system, any of a group of officials, esp. The director) from the capital, and the county assigns the local powerful family to the district governor. Carrots and villages select the influential people there, “chife of village”, and various basic systems up to the military and official positions.) to the Kokushi; provincial governor (under the ritsuryo system, any of a group of officials, esp. the director), who is in charge of compilation. After that, it is thought that the editing of the submitted reports of each county began based on the ideas and compilation intentions of each country, and the climate record for each country was born. Fudoki has been passed down beyond the time of 1300, and now only five countries have been told. You can see how difficult it is to pass on old records to posterity. The five traditions that have been handed down are “Hitachi”, “Harima”, “Izumo”, “Bungo”, and “Hizen” from the east. Of these five Fudoki, the only one that has been handed down in its entirety is “Izumo no Kuni Fudoki”, and the time of creation and the editor are clear. At the end of the book: 天平五年（735年）二月三十日 勘造 秋鹿郡人; アイカノコオリ 神宅臣金太理; かんやけのおみかなたり 国造帯宇郡大領外正六位上勲十二等 出雲臣広嶋とあり: It can be seen that it was created in 733 by the county priest Kanyake no Omikanatari under the supervision of Izumono Omihiroshima. There is also a theory that it is considered to be a reprint because it has been 20 years since the apology was issued. The other four Fudoki are incomplete, but are treated as valuable materials that tell the story of the time. Among them, “Hitachi no Kuni Fudoki” is the only description of the eastern country, and is used as a reference when considering the ancient eastern country. It is thought that Fudoki was created in more than 60 countries nationwide during the Nara period, but nowadays, “Izumo Kuni no Fudoki” (complete), “Hitachi no Kuni Fudoki”, “Harima no Kuni Fudoki”, “Hizen no Kuni Fudoki”, It seems that only the five Fudoki of “Bungo no Kuni Fudoki” (part) are reported. The description varies from country to country, but most of the “Hitachi no Kuni Fudoki” is written in splendid sentences with the 46 Pianwens used in Tang (China) and songs written in Man’yogana. In addition, since it is the only remaining climate record in the eastern country, it seems to be an indispensable document when considering the situation in the eastern country at that time. It is also peculiar that many Japanese Takeru appear and that there are many descriptions of gods, especially the description of Kashima District, where the great god of Kashima is enshrined. This is related to the theory that the center of compilation was Fujiwara no Umakai-Ko. 昔, 難波の長柄の豊崎の大宮に天の下知ろし食しし天皇（孝徳天皇）の御世の白雉四年に, 茨城の国造 小乙下 壬生連麿みぶのむらじまろ、そして那珂の国造: 大建: 壬生直夫子; みぶのあたひをのこらが, 坂東惣領高向大夫; ばんどうたかむこのまえつきみ, 中臣幡織田（連）大夫; なかとみのはとりだのむらじ達に申し出て, 茨城と那珂の郡からそれぞれ八里と七里, 合計: 十五里（七百余戸）の土地を提供して, 郡家を置いて, 『行方郡』としたらしい. A long time ago, when the emperor of Takeru was patrolled under the heavens and turned north from Kasumigaura, when he passed this country and went to Izumi Kiyoizumi in Tsukino, he cleansed his hands with Shimizu and opened a well with a ball. It was a compliment. This is called Kiyoi of Tama, and it is still in the village of whereabouts. In addition, he traveled by car to the country and offered food to God on the hills of Arahara. At that time, the emperor wanted to see all sides and said to the chamberlain. “The scenery you see while walking out of the car is that the mountain ridges and the sea coves cross each other, undulating and winding. The clouds over the peaks and the fog that sets toward the valley. They are lined up in a stunning arrangement and have a delicate beauty. That’s why the name of this country is called a line-up ridge.” Hisashi Namekata later became known as Namekata. 諺に “立雨たちさめふり, 行方の国” といふ. In addition, this hill was named Arahara because it is a hill that can be seen very high from the surroundings. When I went down this hill, went out to the Omasu River, and climbed the river on a small boat, the paddle broke. Therefore, the river is called Mukajigawa River. It is a river that flows through the border between Ibaraki and Namegata. When I went up the Mukaji River to the county border, a duck was about to fly. As soon as the emperor shot the bow, the duck fell to the ground. That place is called Kamano. The soil is thin and there are no living vegetation. To the north of the field, there is a deep forest where Ichii, Kunugi, Kaede, and Japanese cypress grow densely. Masu Pond there was dug during the time of Tayu; Chief actor in a No play Takamukai. In the north, there is a shrine dedicated to the god of Katori, and the mountains beside it are fertile and densely populated with vegetation. There are sea pine trees and salt-burning algae in the sea where you can see from the ferry west of the county, but there are no rare fish and no whales. There is an old indigenous company in the east of the county, which is called the prefecture’s Gion. Shimizu in the forest is called Oi, and people living nearby come to fetch water and use it for drinks. A large tree stands at the south gate of the county house. The northern branch hangs down until it reaches the ground, and then rises into the sky again. This area used to be a swamp of water, so even now, when it rains for a long time, a puddle can form in the garden of the government building. Tachibana trees are also flourishing in the nearby villages. There is Tega no Sato in the northwest of the county. A long time ago, it was named in memory of Saiki, who lived in this area and was named Tega. To the north of the village is a shrine dedicated to the god of Kashima. The surrounding mountains and fields are fertile and rich in chestnuts, bamboo, and chives. To the north of the village of Oga, there is a village of Nun. It was named after Saiki, who lived in this area a long time ago. The station house Umaya is now located, and it is called the Soun Station. 昔, いはれ（石村）の玉穂の宮に大八洲知ろし食しし天皇 : In the reign of Emperor Keitai, there was a man named Mr. Yahazu, who cleared the valley west of the county house and the reclaimed rice field, and healed the newly reclaimed rice field. At that time, the gods of Yatsu appeared in a flock and stood on the left and right, so they could not cultivate the rice fields. (Popularly, a snake is called the god of the night sword. The shape of the body is a snake, but it has a horn on its head. , The house is destroyed and the descendants are gone. Usually, they live in groups in the field beside the county house.) Unable to see it, Mr. Matachi wore armor, took a halberd, and confronted him. Then he set up a wand to mark the moat at the entrance of the mountain, and said, “From today, I will be a priest, in order to make the mountain above here a dwelling place for gods and the village below to be a rice field where people can make. , I will honor God and celebrate the festival until the generations of my descendants, so please do not worship or resent me.” Since then, the descendants of Matachi have continued to take over this festival for generations to this day, the number of newly reclaimed rice field has increased, and more than ten towns have been reclaimed. 後に, 難波の長柄の豊崎の大宮に天の下知ろし食しし天皇 : In the reign of Emperor Kotoku, Mibu no Murajimaro ruled this valley and built a pond bank. At that time, the god of the Yatsu climbed up to the vertebrate tree by the pond and did not leave easily. Maro said in a loud voice, “The purpose of building the embankment is to save the people. I don’t know if it’s a god of heaven or a god of nation, but please listen to the apology.” The snake ran away when he tried to say, “Knock out visible animals and fish insects without fear.” The pond is now called Shiii no Ike（Next to the old man Ikoi’s house in Tamatsukuri Town Izumi）. There is a vertebrate tree on the edge of the pond, and there is also a well where fresh water comes out, which was taken as the name of the pond. This is the overland station road to Kashima. Odaka no Village is located seven Village south of the county. It was named after Saiki, who used to live in this area and was named Odaka. A pond was built during the time of the Hitachi National Guard, Tagima（当麻） chief actor in a No play, and it is still east of the road. In the mountains west of the pond, there are many vegetation and many indigo plants and monkeys. Whale oka, south of the pond, is a place where whales have come all the way to this point and lie down and die. To the north of the pond, there is a shrine dedicated to the god of Katori. It became the name of the pond because there was a large chestnut tree called Kuriya no Ike. In the village of Aso, hemp used to grow at the water’s edge. The hemp was as thick as bamboo, and was more than one length long. Castanopsis, Chestnuts, Zelkova serrata, and Taxus cuspidata flourish, and ino and monkeys live there. Horses that live in the field are for horseback riding. In the reign of the emperor (Emperor Tenmu), who ate at the Omiya of Kiyomihara in Asuka, the life of the county’s university student, Ohofu no Sato, presented the horse in this field to the imperial court. Since then, it has been called the “Missing Horse”. The horse of Ibaraki no Village is called “Ibaraki no Vintage no Horse”. Kasumi no Sato is located 20 ri south of Gunya. In the old biography, Emperor Keiko, the courtier of Shimousa, when he climbed the hill of Torimi, walked slowly and looked at the country, turned to the east and said, “The blue waves in the sea. You can see this country as soon as it springs up from the red haze that flutters on the land,” said the samurai. From this time on, people came to call it “Human Township”. The shrine in the eastern mountain of the village is full of enoki, camellia, camellia, vertebrate, bamboo, salmon, and arrowheads. The island in the sea west of the village is called Niihari’s island. It was named because if you stand on the island and look far north, you can see the mountains of Tsukuba in Small Tsukuba, the country of Niihari. There is a village where you want to come to Ita, located south of Kasuminosato. A station house is placed at a nearby seaside ferry, and it is called Itarai station house. To the west is a forest of celtis sinensis. This is the place where Omi, the king of Omi King, lived in the reign of Asuka Kiyomihara’s emperor (Emperor Tenmu). Many salt-burning algae, sea pine, surf clams, spicy clams, and clams live in the sea. A long time ago, Takekashima Mikoto was sent to the reign of the Emperor Sujin (Emperor Sujin), who ate at the Mizugaki Palace in Shiki, in order to speak to the raging thieves of the eastern country. When Mikoto set up an inn on the island of Aba, while leading the army to the thieves, he saw smoke as he looked far into the eastern ura of the sea. The soldiers suspected that this was a thief army. Mikoto looked up at the heavens and swore, “If it’s the smoke of a heavenly man, come and cover me. If it’s the smoke of a raging thief, go away and go to the sea.” The smoke flowed far towards the sea. Knowing that he was a thief, he ordered all the soldiers to finish breakfast early, and the army crossed the sea. Meanwhile, Kuzu, Yasakashi, Yatsukushiha, and the chief of the thieves, dug a hole, built a small castle, and lived there. When Mikoto fired his troops and expelled them, he fled to the small castle all at once, closing the gate tightly and standing up. Immediately make a plan, select brave soldiers to hide in the depressions of the mountain, build weapons and arrange them in the beach, line up boats, knit rafts, flip the caps of clothing with clouds, and rainbow the flags. Ama no Torikoto and Ama no Torifue sang and danced the first song on Kishima Island for the first time in seven days and seven nights, and enjoyed playing with the sound of the waves. Hearing this fun song and dance, the thieves came out with their families and men and women, and flocked to the beach and laughed happily. Mikoto had his cavalry block the castle, attacking thieves from behind, capturing them, and setting them on fire to destroy them. The place where I said painfully was the town of Taku (Itarai) now, the place where I said that I would slash normally was the village of Futsuna, and the place where I said that I would slash cheaply was the village of Yasukiri, and I often slash. That is Esaki’s eup. In the sea south of Itarai, there is a shore of about 34 villages; 約132 km. In the spring, men and women come from Kashima and whereabouts to pick up clams, surf clams and various other shellfish. Tohoku no native place is located 15 villages to the northeast of the county. A long time ago, when I visited this town during the procession of the Emperor Takeru, Torihi Torihiko, whose name was Saeki, rebelled against his life and defeated him. He then headed for Yagatano’s Book Palace, but the road was narrow, rugged (rough), and rough, hence the name Toma. The soil in the field is thin, but purple grows. There are also two companies, Katori and Kashima. In the surrounding mountains, there are forests of wild boars, hahaso, chestnuts, and shiba, and many wild boars, monkeys, and wolves live there. To the south of Toma, there is the art capital, Kitsunosato. A long time ago, there were two Kuzu, Kitsuhiko and Kitsuhime. In front of the emperor’s pilgrimage, the princess turned against Mikoto, disobeyed herself, and behaved in a very rude manner, so she was killed with a sword. The princess was terrified and fell down on the side of the road with a white flag, and welcomed the emperor. The emperor mercifully gave her grace and forgave her house. As she goes further on her ride and goes to Onukino’s palace, she takes her sister with her, and she does her true heart on rainy and windy days. I finished it in the morning and evening. The emperor was delighted with his lonely appearance, and his love became a stain, so he called this field Uruhashi Ono no. There is a rice field village to the south of the art capital village. In the reign of Empress Jingu, a person named Kotsuhikoto was sent to Korea three times. It became the name because it was given a rice field for its achievements. The field of Hazumuno no was named after Yuhazu was built in the temporary palace of the emperor of Takeru. There is a branch of the god of Kashima on the seaside north of the field. The soil is thin, and elms, elms, elms, bamboo, etc. are sparsely grown. There are Auka and Oho villages to the south of the rice field village. A long time ago, when the emperor of Takeru stayed at Kazakinomiya in front of the hill of Auka, he built Ohido no on the urabe and connected small boats to go to Gozaisho as a bridge. He named Ohohikara, Oho. Also, Ohotachibana no Mikoto, who was after the emperor of Takeru, came down from Yamato and met the emperor here, so it is called Afuka’s eup. Tanakiyonoi : According to the whereabouts of “Hitachi no kuni Fudoki”, “Hunting under the heavens of Emperor Yamato Takeru and conquering the north of the sea. Fortunately, he faced the water, washed his hands, and prospered the well with balls. He is still in the village of whereabouts and is called Tamakiyoi.” Even though it is a well, it is now like a pond in a garden. According to the monument of “Tamakiyoi” by Mr. Tsutomu KURITA, which stands nearby, it is said that it was dug by the villagers during the famine of Tenmei. 常陸国風土記の記載内容-行方郡-A long time ago, when the emperor of Takeru was patrolled under the heavens and turned north from Kasumigaura, when he passed this country and went out to Shimizu in Tsukino, he cleansed his hands with Shimizu and opened a well with a ball. It was a compliment. This is called Kiyoi of Tama, and it is still in the village of Namegata. It belongs to the same category as the mustard greens and red leaf mustard of Western mustard greens, which are popular as baby leaf, and the traditional Kaga vegetable, Futatsuka mustard greens. Cultivation of “wasabi greens” in Namegata City was started in 2005 by four farmers as part of the efforts of the Agricultural Revitalization Committee of the Kitaura Kuwagashira Conference. At that time, the committee introduced the new variety “Wasabina” from the seed company that purchased the seeds of ‘Angelica keiskei’, which was cultivated as a crop for the elderly. In 2007, the number of producers increased to 39 and the shipment volume increased significantly, so in April 2008, it became independent as ‘Namegata Wasabina Category’. In recognition of these activities, it was designated as the Ibaraki prefecture brand production area for “Wasabi greens” in December of the same year, and has now developed into a production area with 48 producers. The subcommittee has positioned wasabi greens, which are relatively easy to cultivate, as crops for the elderly and part-time farmers, and is working to popularize them. It is the cultivation of “sweet potato” by Konyo Aoki, which was carried out during the reign of Yoshimune TOKUGAWA in the middle of the Edo period. Not only did this save the famine of the time, but it also spreads this excellent agricultural product, known as a “famine crop” in western Japan, to eastern Japan. However, it seems that Shizuoka Prefecture has a long history of introducing sweet potatoes to Ibaraki. In the spring of 1766 (Meiwa 3), it seems that a Satsuma ship was distressed off the coast of Omaezaki, Suruga Province. It seems that a certain Osawa who lives nearby saved the life of a sailor. He takes over the sweet potatoes as a thank-you and asks him to teach him how to grow them. After that, it seems that sweet potatoes began to be made in the village of the plateau. In the jurisdiction, the sweet potato subcommittee was established in the whereabouts agricultural cooperative from 1976. In the city, sweet potato production will start in earnest from here. Namegata Plateau is a volcanic ash soil of the Kanto Loam Formation, and it seems that sweet potatoes, which are as good as the Kagoshima area, which is the home of excellent sweet potatoes, are produced. “Benimasari sweet potato: From the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries variety registration website, application number 14068, application date 2001/11/15, application publication date 2002/03/22, registration number 12964, registration date 2005/03/23, breeder 20 years of duration of rights, extinction date of breeder’s rights Name and address of cultivar registrant, National Research and Development Corporation Agriculture and Food Industry Technology Research Organization (Kannondai, Tsukuba City, Ibaraki Prefecture) , Mr. Osamu Yamakawa, Mr. Kazutami Tsukuda, Mr. Tadahiro Sonoda, Mr. Misao Hidaka, Mr. Toru Kumagai, Ms. Yu Yoshinaga, Ms. Yumi Kai, Mr. Koji Ishiguro, Restrictions on exports, no designated countries, restrictions on productions Outline of characteristics This variety was bred by crossing breeding lines owned by the applicant, and the plant type is slightly 匍 匐, the leaves are heart-shaped, the skin color of the potato is red, and the flesh color is pale yellow. It is a suitable variety. The plant type is slightly stubborn, the grass vigor is slightly strong, there is no curl, the plant height is slightly high, the stem color and knot color are not, the stem thickness is slightly thick, the stem length, the number of branches, and the internode length. And the hair mushroom on the stem is medium, the apical leaf color is light green, the leaf color is green, the leaf shape is heart-shaped, the size of the leaf is medium, the leaf vein color is absent, and the honey gland color is slight. The length of the tuber is medium, the strength is slightly strong, the shape of the potato is spindle-shaped, the size is medium, the basic color of the skin color is red, there is no auxiliary color, the shade of the skin color is medium, the distribution is uniform, and the flesh color is Light yellow, fine groove, no flesh veins, slightly higher appearance, slightly faster sprouting growth, slightly more sprouting and slightly more heavy potatoes per round, no carotene, resistance to black spot disease Slightly strong, Meloidogyne resistance is medium. Compared to “Kokei No. 14 sweet potato”, the leaf shape is heart-shaped, there is no skin color (auxiliary color) of sweet potato, and the black leaf speck resistance is stronger, so compared to “Beniotome sweet potato”. , No knot color and leaf vein color, and the flesh color of sweet potato is pale yellow. If you are a nationwide fan who has been cultivating sweet potatoes with the motto of choosing a land in a place where sweet potatoes have been cultivated for a long time and making it with your heart, there should be no one who does not know it. Since 2005, we have started a baked sweet potato strategy to provide delicious baked sweet potatoes throughout the year. In recognition of this initiative, we received the prestigious Emperor’s Cup at the 56th “Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries Festival Diversified Management Division” in 2017. Until the 1965s, the intentions of individual producers have been handed down from the time when they made their own products and selected them individually to the present.
The flesh color is deep yellow, the flesh is slightly sticky, and the taste is good. In addition, it has a high yield and seems to be suitable for early digging. Good sprouting and storability. For fruits and vegetables, it seems to be suitable for Kansho cultivation areas nationwide. In 1992, it was selected by mating “Kyushu No. 104 sweet potato” as a mother and “Kyushu 87010-21 sweet potato” as a father.
This excellent agricultural product developed by the Kyushu Okinawa Agricultural Research Center seems to have the drawbacks of weak resistance to pests, reduced yields and loss of shape. In addition, the taste has moderate sweetness and meat quality, but it differs due to the diversification of taste orientation in recent years, and it seems that varieties are particularly desired because they are sticky and sweet. Revolutionary cultivation of fruit and vegetable varieties with excellent yield, taste, and pest resistance. Kansho Norin 55 is a strain selected by artificial mating in 1992. Since 1998, the system name is “Kyushu No. 130 sweet potato”, and it is the result of examining regional suitability and processing suitability at public agricultural testing and research institutes.
In the jurisdiction, when cultivating fruits and vegetables, as an environmentally friendly agricultural initiative, we are promptly promoting the spread of pesticide-reducing cultivation technology such as proper control of pesticides and installation of insect repellent nets. As a result, all producers have received Ibaraki Prefecture’s eco-farmer certification and are working on pesticide-reduced and chemical-reduced fertilizer cultivation.
