Japanese Rice farmers to take leadership
Japanese farmers to take leadership in rice production from FY 2007

(Kyodo) _ The government will allow large-scale farmers and agricultural groups to take the leadership in adjusting rice production from fiscal 2007, one year ahead of schedule, government officials said Tuesday.

The measure will come as the government begins to focus subsidies on productive farmers in the year beginning in April 2007 to help them become competitive, they said at a meeting of an agricultural reform panel advising the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries.

The government has so far controlled farmers' rice production.

At the panel, the representatives of the Tokyo Grain Exchange and Kansai Commodities Exchange gave their plans to reintroduce rice futures trading in Japan for the first time in 70 years.

While rice farmers are afraid that rice futures trading could allow their products to become subject to speculative transactions, the representatives said futures trading will lead to the establishment of benchmark prices and help avoid price fluctuation risks.
