In addition to agro-land accumulation – the ability to cultivate multiple commodities expands the region’s possibilities and the ability to incorporate a small general purpose that supports it

Agricultural land accumulation is completed before the rest of the country. What should we do for the next generation?

Mr. Takashi Katsube, Director of Green Support Co., Ltd.

-The agricultural land was concentrated and expanded very early, but what happened?

The site has been undergoing maintenance projects since 1969 and is now almost 100% complete. It started out as the former mayor of the town promoted labor savings in agricultural work, and used the excess labor generated there to attract companies and make the town rich. First, we expanded 10a-scale agricultural land to 30a scale, and in 1991 we started a large standard field maintenance project, and we are also developing irrigation works.

-I have often heard that land accumulation is difficult, but why was land accumulation completed in Hikawa-cho?

When you are unable to do farm work, you might often think, “I want to ask that person about farmland.” Here, however, the peasants who want to provide arable land must first allot the agricultural land to the Agricultural Corporation, while the dominant farmers try to accumulate by taking over from there. The Hikawa Town Agriculture Corporation serves as an umbrella organization for agricultural land use and builds trusting relationships by executing questionnaires and exchanging opinions with all farmers. people in the area about their future plans and their heirs. I’m.

In the early days of management of a public corporation, there were problems such as scattered land and different quality of fields. So we have put in place a fair system in which the rent varies according to 7 conditions such as drainage and sunshine and a 5-item point system for each area to be able to clarify the rent. to both the lender and the borrower. In addition, since 2002, we have accelerated the replacement and expansion of agricultural land by receiving a “blank power of attorney” with an unspecified lender, and now more than 80% of agricultural land. in Hikawa-cho it was the peasants and the peasants of the village. It is aggregated.

– What role does Green Support Hikawa play in the field maintenance project?

In the old days, Hikawa-cho Agriculture Corporation had a department responsible for accumulation and a department responsible for land management and cultivation owned immediately (agricultural land could not be assigned to the name), but the amount of agricultural land handled increased with each year, and at that time no agricultural activity was allowed, so it established Hikawa Green Support Co., Ltd. as the company support from Agricultural Group. Currently, as an agricultural producer, we are receiving measures to support agriculture (such as subsidies for crops) from the national government, while also supporting farmers. People are industrious and conduct farming activities on about 40 hectares of agricultural land without any people.

– Now that land accumulation has been completed, what do you think about the future?

The national review goal has been completed, but further vision has not been expressed. I myself am at the stage of thinking about many different things, but I am thinking about how to pass on this business to the next generation.

Among them, I am always interested in Agritech in terms of how to reduce the burden on the producer. At Green Support Hikawa, the fields are spaced far apart, so we are using “Agri-Note” to improve efficiency by examining the placement of the fields we work in and managing the plan. employee work and progress. In addition, we are incorporating efficient equipment while testing paddy field sensors, agricultural drones that detect chemical spray, and the latest ICT equipment to measure altitude differences in the field.

Besides, I think it is important to think carefully about the types of cultivation products in the area.* firstNijo barley, soba, soybeans, small beans, as well as various crops such as sweet potatoes and white onions are grown. Right now, I think it’s necessary to think of an inversion in order to positively embrace change.

Therefore, Green Support Hikawa introduced the “Mitsubishi VCH750 Mini Multipurpose Combination Kit”, which allows cutting a variety of different crops by switching attachments, as a combiner can be used in the lips. The school cultivates many items. In Hikawa-cho, where there is a high rate of arable land use, many producers cultivate crops other than wet rice, and it is not enough for individuals to use multipurpose crops.

The main reason for choosing this machine is that it can be mounted on a 4t truck and can move smoothly. The combination I’ve used so far has been moved by a tractor, but the tractor doesn’t speed up causing traffic congestion and takes time to travel.

Historically, combinatorial maneuvering has been the job of a reap veteran who cannot fail, but if you explain “VCH750” to a young employee one day, it will be easy and comfortable to do yourself operated from the next day. The point I worry about after using it is that it takes time to replace and clean the attachments, and I want to cut the taller tree more smoothly. I hope that it will become a better product by incorporating the user’s voice.

Today, we are cutting soba in place. Izumo is soba, but in recent years it has been based on the “No. 1 Shinshu” produced outside the prefecture. Therefore, in order to create a real Izumo soba using the soba grown in Izumo, we plant the original new variety of Shimane “Izumo no Mai” in cooperation with neighboring producers and a one-stop partnership. local soba goods. And sell it. We call this initiative “the sixth industrialization of the region” and believe that collective action will be an important point in the future of agriculture.

I want to pursue a “new form of agriculture” so that information and technological innovation will be chosen so that leadership will not be affected by TPP or rice prices, and the business for the next generation will be successful.

Ask the person in charge of design and technology, the selling point of “Multi-function Mitsubishi compact with VCH750”

Atsushi Kimura, Complex Manager, Design and Development Division, Mitsubishi Mahindra Agricultural Machinery Co., Ltd.

We interviewed Mr. Atsushi Kimura of Mitsubishi Mahindra Agricultural Machinery Co., Ltd. about the selling points of the “VCH750” and its technical commitment.

-First of all, please tell us the features of the VCH750.

The biggest feature is the compact body that can be mounted on 4t trucks and is the smallest multi-purpose hybrid vehicle in Japan. Despite its small body, it has strong performance, effective in cutting Various crops such as wet rice, wheat, soba, soybeans, and rapeseed are also suitable for family conditions where small fields are often scattered. The only public road in Japan* 2It is a general purpose mix that can be used.

* 2 A special large driver’s license is required to drive on public roads.

– Please tell us what you are special about in the development of the VCH750.

The so-called multipurpose machine has the advantage of cutting a variety of crops, but can also be said to be a machine that risks mixing different crops. Therefore, we pay special attention to ease of cleaning. Soba and wheat can cause allergies, so we redesigned or properly opened the lid to clean up places where plants tend to accumulate.

Mr. Hikawa, Green Support, gave us advice on cleaning and replacing attachments, but we wanted to offer ways to make the job easier while it was easy. cleaning is an important point. In process. We also want to provide attachments that will allow us to crop new crops in the future.

In the operation system, we are also special about the newly introduced “ACTIVE TOUCH dashboard”. Equipped with a physical switch that can be operated even when wearing gloves and by incorporating the camera screen in the control panel, you can quickly capture the image of the camera and the situation of the aircraft. Additionally, we have devised a way to avoid confusion by making the levers a system that works similarly to a self-reject combination.

Mitsubishi original technology “Super e-Threscher” was installed in the function of particle removal / sorting. A fluororesin coating has been confirmed to regulate dust transfer automatically, automatically control loads during grain removal and effectively reduce soybean fouling by the Agricultural Research Organization. National Food Industry and Agriculture Technology Research Organization). Waterproof stone flow plate improves work efficiency and performs high precision sorting work. In addition, the automatic sorting control with a float sensor eliminates the need to adjust the opening of the cutting groove when cutting rice and wheat.

– What kind of users do you recommend?

Personally, it is especially recommended for those thinking of a soy-only mix alternative. It is also ideal for those who are thinking of trying out different crops like Hikawa-cho with the advent of “VCH750”. I hope that “VCH750” will be an opportunity to support rice conversion and cultivation.
