JA Awa’s largest product is edible rape blossoms, and it also produces fruits such as loquats and strawberries. Flower production is thriving in the Kanbe branch jurisdiction of Tateyama city, and it seems that it accounts for more than half of the sales. The main shipping destinations are the Tokyo metropolitan area, including the Ota Floriculture Market. Celery of the Tateyama Organic Society has established a fertilizer application method that takes into consideration the taste that uses almost no chemical fertilizer, based on many years of cultivation experience such as applying coarse organic matter such as rice straw and rice husks. Soil analysis is conducted every year, the mixing ratio is examined based on the results, and organic compound fertilizer unique to the Organic Society is applied. With many years of cultivation experience, such as applying coarse organic matter such as rice straw and rice husks, it seems that a fertilizer application method that takes into consideration the taste that uses almost no chemical fertilizer has been established.
It was September 8, 2019 that a huge typhoon struck a hellish tragedy in a mild climate of the jurisdiction. Typhoon No. 15 (2019 Boso Peninsula Typhoon), which recorded the highest instantaneous wind speed of 57.5 m / s in the history of observation, is hitting the metropolitan area directly. Greenhouses play a role in avoiding damage to crops due to poor weather, diseases, pests and rain. Crops can be harvested even when it is not in season, and there are many merits for farmers to cultivate and harvest in a stable manner. However, historic natural disasters have gone beyond that common sense. The damage was tremendous and many green houses were destroyed. It seems that various facilities such as heating were also seriously damaged. The damage was particularly large at the place where it hit the path of the gust, and the degree of damage varied depending on the producer, but there was a fact that about half of the green houses were damaged in the entire production subcommittee. Typhoon No. 19 (2019 East Japan Typhoon) occurred from October 12th to 13th to make it even more difficult. Greenhouse was spared from collapse by peeling off the vinyl, but this time it was hit by salt damage. Since the field is close to the sea, it seems that sea salt has fallen due to the stormy wind.
In vacuum precooling, the vacuum cooling device requires a short time for cooling, and cycle operation is possible in a short time. It seems that the quality is maintained even in the rain because it evaporates excess water when it cools. Since it cools evenly even in a boxed state, no special equipment is required other than the cold insulation equipment after vacuum precooling. By introducing the equipment, it will be possible to handle long-distance shipping, and the trade area will be expanded. All work is automated and no special operation is required. A method of carrying in from the entrance and carrying out from the exit on the opposite side. Since loading and unloading can be done almost at the same time, the efficiency of loading and unloading work is high. Adding a stock conveyor to the carry-in / carry-out section tends to improve efficiency. The proper cooling method must be adopted according to the shape and characteristics of the vegetables. Cold air cooling is highly versatile and can be applied to all items. Vacuum cooling seems to be used not only in leafy vegetables, but also in root vegetables. It seems that root vegetables are also considering the effect of removing the washing water adhering to the surface. In the Evaporation Latent Heat, it is necessary to apply heat or the like from the outside in order to make a phase transition from a liquid to a gas or from a solid to a liquid. During the phase change, the temperature of the substance is constant and does not change. For example, water containing ice and stirring keeps a constant temperature at about 0 ° C, and water boiling in atmospheric pressure keeps about 100 ° C. During the phase transition, the applied thermal energy transforms into a structural change in the material, so there is no apparent thermal change. It refers to the heat required when a liquid substance changes to a gaseous state.
