The amount of output is the highest in Chiba prefecture. It is small, thin and can be eaten with seeds, and is rich in vitamin C and carotene. In addition, many farmers feel that the reduction of labor from cultivation to pest control is the greatest. Shishito green pepper is a crop with a high unit of land measurement unit price, but it takes time to harvest and select fruits, so it seems that it contributes greatly to labor saving. In addition, by reducing the frequency of spraying pesticides, the impact on people and the environment is also taken into consideration.
The excellent variety “Tsubaki Green shishito green peppers”, which is popular in Asahi City, Chiba Prefecture and bears many fruits, is famous. It seems that heat insulation such as vinyl tunnels is required for open-field cultivation. According to Musashino Seedling Garden Co., Ltd. (Minamiikebukuro, Toshima Ward, Tokyo), which sells seedlings, it is an excellent seed with an outstanding lineup and a 20 to 30% increase in sales. As a characteristic, the grass is strong and the branches are vigorous, so it seems to be suitable for long-term cultivation. The fruits are slightly slender, the shoulders are stroking, the matching is excellent, and the rate is high, and it seems that the amount will increase by 20 to 30%. It has excellent low-temperature extensibility and fruit-bearing hypertrophy, and it seems that the occurrence of stone fruits is extremely small. Even in the high temperature season in summer, the excellent product rate is high without lowering the rate. Since the roots are very strong, it seems to be suitable for long-term cultivation, open-field cultivation and a wide range of cropping types. In addition, since the grass is strong and there are many branches, pruning should be done diligently to improve lighting and ventilation. Drying and running out of fertilizer cause stagnant growth, disturb the fruit set cycle, and reduce the total yield, so it seems better to add fertilizer and irrigation in a timely manner to maintain the grass vigor.
The specially cultivated agricultural products are described in the labeling guidelines of the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries of Japan as follows: Is 50% or less, and the amount of chemical fertilizer used is 50% or less in terms of nitrogen content. ”Agricultural products are displayed as“ specially cultivated agricultural products ”. In the previous “Guidelines for Organic Agricultural Products and Specially Cultivated Agricultural Products” of the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries, “Pesticide-Reduced Cultivated Agricultural Products”, “Reduced Chemical Fertilizer Cultivated Agricultural Products”, “Pesticide-Free Cultivated Agricultural Products”, and “Chemical Fertilizer Cultivated Agricultural Products” are displayed. there were. This was an acceptable label for agricultural products with less chemical fertilizers and synthetic pesticides than conventional cultivation levels. However, there are criticisms from consumers that it is easy to confuse “pesticide-free cultivated agricultural products” with “organic cultivated agricultural products” that are cultivated more severely. Amendments have been made, such as quitting the term “specially cultivated agricultural products” and changing the name to “specially cultivated agricultural products”, which has been in effect since April 2004. In the 2003 amendment, agricultural products to which the guidelines apply are “specially cultivated agricultural products” from the viewpoint of further promoting environment-friendly agriculture, (1) reducing the use of chemically synthesized pesticides and fertilizers, and (2). We adopted a cultivation method that maximized the productivity of agricultural land derived from the nature of the soil and (3) reduced the burden on the environment derived from agricultural production as much as possible. Both are defined as agricultural products produced by a cultivation method with 50% or less of the conventional level. Furthermore, in March 2007, amendments were made such as excluding pesticides that can be used in the JAS standard for organic agricultural products from chemically synthesized pesticides to be reduced, and they have been implemented immediately from April of the following month.
