etc.In recent years it is known as a fossil gusset. Forests are characterized by steep slopes and complex terrain with small rivers and streams. To make effective use of rich forest operation : Need a solid work path network to overcome difficult terrain. Invited Yukio TANABE, one of the leading forest work road opened technicians in the town. “Tanabe style strip road” ; First, a homogeneous road body is created by the embankment method. Accelerate slope planting by using topsoil and root stock, and reduce the cutting width as much as possible. This is an environmentally and economically good road. Technology created by Mr. Tanabe in Shimanto, Kochi Prefecture, which is a steep slope and typhoon-prone area : Promote efforts to improve to Northern Hokkaido in cooperation with engineers. “Hawk-eagle wind feathers” – Biodiversity indicator-Located at the top of the food chain. Inhabitation of the mountain hawk eagle, also known as the umbrella species (umbrella species) : Means the richness and soundness of the biota under its umbrella. Numerous Rare birds of prey nest and reveal a rich forest ecosystem. The existence of bamboo grass is indispensable as one of the factors that hinder the natural regeneration of trees. A very, very strong competitor for the species of trees in Northern Hokkaido. Therefore, the bamboo grass is removed together with the topsoil to expose the hard soil. This is work to support the germination and growth of cambers-Raise-Small area Performed in logging and undeveloped land : We carry out operations mainly for the purpose of renewing cambers. “Shimokawa Town, Kamikawa District”, A pioneer hoe is put in 1901. The fertile land of the Nayoro River basin, abundant nature and blessed forest resources : Overcome many difficults with the wisdom and untiling efforts of our predecessors. And it has developed steadily. The tree in the town is Abies sachalinensis. It was established on January 1, 1978 – The flower of the town is gentian. The environment surrounding local governments remains harsh. Supporting existing industries and new entrepreneurs : A city with moisture and vitality, safe and secure for children and the elderly : The most happy city in Japan where you can have a purpose to live. Residents play a leading role in actively working on human resource development and attracting human resources. Create a town where you can play an active role : Creating “Shimokawa” now and in the future through collaborative work between residents and the government. Promote community development aimed at increasing the happy population. “Agriculture” : The Nayoro River runs east to west through the central part of the area. The climate has a continental appearance and is relatively hot in summer. Focusing on rice cultivation and dairy farming, taking advantage of the location conditions. Rice cultivation has shifted to upland farming due to the establishment of conversion. The planted area in recent years is about 70 ha, and the total amount is glutinous rice – Recent years. Formed one of Hokkaido’s leading production areas with neighboring municipalities. Upland farming is mainly done with wheat and buckwheat. In recent years, we have shifted to the production of high-value-added agricultural products. Institutional garden crops that are not easily affected by weather conditions are being introduced. フルーツトマト, スナップエンドウ, キヌサヤエンドウ, グリーンアスパラガス, “White asparagus” : Production is being expanded as one of the leading production areas in Hokkaido. Dairy accounts for 70% of the town’s agricultural production.In addition, the annual milk production has reached 14,200 tons. In recent years, some corporations have introduced milking robots. Also, for the purpose of reducing feed production labor and producing high quality feed : The TMR Center was established in 2005 to stabilize management. Established with investment from each farmer. Its main role is to supply food. “Exclusive-use facilities” – Make a large amount of feed – Stable with less burden than when making food at each farm – A mechanism that makes it easier to produce high-quality feed. The number of members of the Center depends on the size. In Hokkaido, one consists ; TMR of several to 30 dairy farmers. 北はるかの“ホワイトアスパラガス”, Twenty producers are planting about 3.4 ha. It stores nutrients in Autumn and grows as soon as the snow melts. Therefore, it has a lot of water and has excellent sweetness. Also, since it is cultivated in a house, it is white and beautiful like snow. Inside a pitch-black house covered with a special light-shielding film that blocks 99.9% sunlight : It grows while touching the air, not the soil.Since the temperature is controlled in the house, there are few pests and pests can be grown safely. A delicious vegetable that is soft, slightly thick, has a pronounced sweetness, and is chewy. The harvest time is short, from mid-April to late May. So precious. A taste that can only be experienced all year round. Since there is no unique “Lye”, there is no need to remove lye. Can be cooked as easily as green asparagus. At first, ‘White Asparagus’ for canning for export to Europe and the United States is the mainstream. Spread to ordinary homes and widely used are eventsies, 1960s. When the harvest is at its peak-One date It will be harvested every day because it will grow more than five centimeters. Make the picked stems edible. A white one that is covered with soil.The green ones that are normally grown are Green Asparagus. Green and White are in the cultivation method, and there is no difference between the varieties. Embankment with a height of about 25 cm: Cultivated so that the young shoots are not exposed to light. Cut from the root before the buds come out on the ground, yellowish white. Strains with male flowers and Strains with female flowers: Male and Female strains.You can get multiple stems with appropriate thickness and tight tips-Dioecious（Male plant）. Males and females are indistinguishable by appearance, so you have to wait until the flowers bloom. There are houses in the northern, central and southern parts of Miyaki Town. Not only Spring buds but also summer buds are harvested and devised for long-term shipping. Most of the agricultural land that spreads on flat land is excellent agricultural land with a well-established foundation. It is also designated as an agricultural promotion area. Agricultural Products are known for rice, wheat, and industrial crops (rush). Reformation into well-drained paddy field: Vegetables such as strawberries, onions, tomatoes, and small green onion are actively taken in. It is useful as an alternative to rice and wheat. In particular, asparagus is highly expected as cropable crops even for women and elderly. Pioneer Immigration Policy: In 1869, the new government changed Ezo to “Hokkaido” and established the Pioneer Agency, dividing Hokkaido into 86 counties in 11 countries. At the beginning of the Hokkaido Development Commission, the powers of each clan of the former Shogunate were requested to set up a territory and cultivate it. The control policy will be abolished. From 1874, the agricultural soldiers system, which doubles as northern security and reclamation, was introduced, and in May 1875, colonization began in Kotonihei Village, a suburb of Sapporo. In addition, Kiyotaka Kuroda, the Secretary of the Development Commission, will invite Horace Capron from the United States. Accepted the appeal of Kiyotaka, who had traveled to the United States in 1871 when he was the Secretary of Agriculture of the United States Government, accepted the invitation after resigning from his current position, and visited Japan in the same year until he returned to Japan in May 1875. Has made a great contribution to the development of. He made constructive proposals in various fields such as road construction, industry, and agriculture, and these measures seem to be the starting point for building the foundation for the development of Hokkaido as well as Sapporo today. During his stay in Japan, he proposed many projects, especially Sapporo Agricultural College, Pioneer Brewery, etc., which is one of the big projects for Sapporo, leaving many footprints in the development of Sapporo today. At Odori Park 10-chome, statues of Horace Capron and Kiyotaka are erected side by side, and they continue to look at the future of Sapporo, the capital city that continues to develop toward the east. Capron is highly regarded as one of the ancestors who built the history of Sapporo.
Shining white in a pitch-black greenhouse, JA Kita-haruka’s white asparagus seems to grow in a pitch-black greenhouse covered with a special light-shielding film that blocks 99.9% sunlight, touching the air instead of the soil. Since the temperature is strictly controlled, it seems that the plants are grown safely with few outbreaks of pests. By not touching the soil, it seems to be a pure white asparagus with almost no harshness. It is cultivated, harvested and shipped from the shading green house from April to June every year.
I’ve heard that the temperature of a greenhouse can reach 30 degrees Celsius during the day, so harvesting can only be done early in the morning when the temperature settles down. Originally, the green and white of asparagus are the same, the one cultivated by blocking the sunlight is white, and the one exposed to the sun is green. Compared to green, white is thicker and has a slightly thicker skin, and the sweetness stands out. It has a crispy and chewy impression. It is a precious seasonal taste that can only be tasted all year round.
