Tokachi is one of leading large-scale field crop areas in Japan. Here, we are engaged in efficient farming that makes efficient use of large farm machinery and ICT, which cannot be found anywhere else in the country. However, with the number of farm households decreasing year by year and the aging of farmers, there are concerns about labor shortages. In addition, high-precision working techniques are required to improve crop yields and quality, and further automation and robotization are required.
I am developing a new smart system to solve the challenges facing Tokachi, which is the same environment as the standard agriculture in the world. And I want to share that technology with the world.
