Bumper rice crop predicted in Japan
Daily Yomiuri - Tokyo,Japan
The government has released projections for this year's rice harvest and the news is good.
The rice harvest is expected to be good this year in sharp contrast to last year's crop, the poorest in a decade, thanks to the high temperature and ample hours of sunlight especially in western Japan, the Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries Ministry said Wednesday.
According to the projections as of Aug. 15, the rice harvest is expected to be "good" in Oita and three other prefectures, while 35 prefectures will enjoy "fairly good" crops.
Among the 19 prefectures mainly in eastern Japan, which occupy about 70 percent of the nation's rice-field acreage, six prefectures along the Sea of Japan recently hit by torrential rain, including Niigata and Fukui prefectures, will have "an average year," the ministry said. Rice will be harvested soon in the 19 prefectures.
Meanwhile, 26 out of 27 prefectures mainly in western Japan, where rice is harvested later than the 19 prefectures, are expected to enjoy "good" or "fairly good" rice harvests. Tokushima Prefecture, which was affected by Typhoon No. 10, will have "an average year."
The ministry said Okinawa Prefecture, where the rice harvest is expected to be completed by the end of the month, will be the only prefecture whose rice harvest will be worse than average due to a water shortage.
"The rice crop for this year will be as good as the abundant crop in 2001 as long as nothing happens later this year to affect the crop," the ministry said.
