S1 Farming Homework – Japan

Your task is to write a report on Japanese farming.  Here’s a bit of help…   8)

Your report should answer these questions

1. What are some problems with farming in Japan? (e.g. lack of space to farm, profits falling, climate, hard work, second jobs for farmers, young people not wanting to go into farming)

*Japan’s weekend (!) rice farmers….. CLICK HERE

*Some more problems with Japanese farming – CLICK HERE

2. What will Japanese farming be like in the future?  (This section should focus on ‘Hydroponics’- What is hydroponics?  Is it a good or bad thing? Or both?)

*Have a look at this crazy story about a rice field built in the basement of an office block  (Click the picture)

Finally…GOOD LUCK…any questions? Just see me in G20 or comment on the site  😉
