  • Japan - Organic farming

    T/I: 10:39:10 Forty-eight-year-old Yoshinori Kaneko has been farming organically at Ogawa, just ouside Tokyo, for the past 26 years. Throughout the year he grows some 80 different types of fruits and vegetables along with rice and wheat. His produce is popular with consumers who worry about the use of chemicals in agriculture. Mr. Kaneko feeds his livestock with weeds and vegetable scraps. The animals provide eggs and milk for the dinner table, and manure which plays a vital role as compost. The manure from his cows even provides methane gas, which he uses as cooking fuel in his home. It's placed in a fermentation vat underground. Micro-organisms are added to break it down and create gas. In winter, when the micro-organisms are less active, a solar heater warms the vat to encourage...

Close, lettuce in basket LEAD IN A series of food scares on mainland China have boosted sales of organic foods in Hong Kong. Organic production only began in 1988 but farmers are now breaking even. STORYLINE Cheung Din-hung and his colleague are picking organic vegetables in their field at Happy Organic Farm. Din-hung used to have an office job, but he wanted to do his bit for the environment. He rents around five thousand square feet of land in Hong Kong's Tuen Mun district, where he produces organic fruits and vegetables. Mainland China has a very cheap vegetable production and products reach Hong Kong customers at a fraction of Din-hung's prices. But quality issues and recent health scandals have encouraged organic farming. Organic farming has its own tricks and methods.

The stalls do not provide plastic bags. 3. The vegetables sold there are not so "good-lookong" and are not of uniform size and uniform colour. Think of the tomatoes you see in a supermarket, they are usually of amazingly uniform size and colour, which is a bit unnatural. I remember what my mother-in-law, who is a farmer, told me:"If a fruit looks perfect, do not eat it." 4. Although there are only about 10 stalls, quite of lot of varieties of vegetables are sold there, some are hardly seen in a regular vegetable market.

T/I: 10:39:10 Forty-eight-year-old Yoshinori Kaneko has been farming organically at Ogawa, just ouside Tokyo, for the past 26 years. Throughout the year he grows some 80 different types of fruits and vegetables along with rice and wheat. His produce is popular with consumers who worry about the use of chemicals in agriculture. Mr. Kaneko feeds his livestock with weeds and vegetable scraps. The animals provide eggs and milk for the dinner table, and manure which plays a vital role as compost. The manure from his cows even provides methane gas, which he uses as cooking fuel in his home. It's placed in a fermentation vat underground. Micro-organisms are added to break it down and create gas. In winter, when the micro-organisms are less active, a solar heater warms the vat to encourage decomposition. The methane gas is then piped from the vat to the farmhouse kitchen. The gas is similar in quality to that found in the city. After all the methane gas has been released, the liquid by-product from the decomposed manure is spread on the fields as fertilizer. Mr Kaneko enjoys a lifestyle that provides a comfortable relationship with nature. He is frequently visited by students coming to learn about organic farming. He also uses solar generated electricity and wind energy to power water pumps on his farm. And he re-cycles cooking oil as fuel for diesel engines. There are no sulphur oxides in oil so there are no unpleasant odors.
