Stevia farming is one of the organic farming methods that uses natural ingredients from the Asteraceae plant called Stevia. For example, the farming method used for sweet fruits such as tomatoes, mandarins, pears, peaches, strawberries, blueberries, and melons is said to be more delicious. In addition, it seems that the crops produced by this farming method will have a long shelf life, high nutrients, and are good for the body. One answer is that it is used in foodstuffs in Japan as a sugar substitute sweetener, but it seems to be a banned sweetener in the United States and China. Mixing this stevia with the soil has the advantage of eliminating bad bacteria and increasing the number of good bacteria, so it seems that soil can be improved without relying on chemical fertilizers and the sugar content of crops will increase dramatically.
According to the research results of the Ibaragi Prefectural Agricultural Research Center Horticultural Research Institute in Kasama City, announced in 2014, in the controlled cultivation cherry tomato, selection of effective chemicals according to the outbreak of pests, cultivated / physical control and soil diagnosis fertilization for basal fertilization By using liquid fertilizer containing 50% organic N, the topdressing fertilizer is below the Ibaragi Prefecture Specially Cultivated Agricultural Products Certification Usage Standards (according to the national “Laboring Guidelines for Specially Cultivated Agricultural Products”, pesticides subject to reduction in the production process of the agricultural products, etc. The number of times (including soil disinfectants, herbicides, etc.) is used and the amount of nitrogen component of the chemical fertilizer used is generated below the standard set by the prefecture with respect to the customary standard, and sold to an unspecified number of consumers. The Ibaragi Prefecture Specially Cultivated Agricultural Products Certification Implementation Guidelines were partially revised on March 30, 2021 and came into effect on April 1, 2021. The main contents of the revision are the abolition of stamps and It seems that the style has changed due to this. It seems that the previous example can still be used for 7 months from the date of enforcement. With this system, the prefecture will increase consumer confidence in agricultural products produced in Ibaragi prefecture and will be safer. We are trying to expand agricultural production to meet consumer needs for safe agricultural products and environment-friendly agricultural products.) It seems that the yield was almost the same as that of conventional cultivation.
Like the large ball tomatoes, it is native to South America, and it seems that it was introduced to Mexico and other places due to the migration of its predecessor Indians, and then spread to various parts of Europe. After entering the Edo period for ornamental use in Japan, it seems that the variety was improved and changed to edible. By the way, it seems that cherry tomatoes were originally called cherry tomatoes. It seems that cherry tomatoes became so popular in the 1975s.
