Institute for Kuma agriculture
The last update date:
In Institute for Kuma agriculture, we study cultivation technology for kohinshitsuyasuteitashuseisan which is correct in the weather, land peculiar to Kuma area, ordinary crops, vegetables, tea suitable for management condition, the excellence kind choice of fallen leaves fruit tree and the characteristic.
Furthermore, we examine the saving of labor, low cost production engineering and study mainly on applied assembling proof for the spread, practical use of new technology.
Summary of test and research
Rice field product section
The choice of rice field crops (paddy-rice, soybean, wheat) excellence kind suitable for Kuma area
- We choose paddy-rice and soybean suitable for climate of Kuma area, excellent new kind of wheat and examine about the cultivation method.
- We investigate the growth situation of kind that is cultivated a lot in Kuma area and check relations with the weather and provide as local instruction information.
Paddy-rice examination rice field
Local adaptability and tashugijutsu such as feed stored rice enabling use of altitude of rice field
- We choose excellent variety that it is for non-staple food suitable for Kuma area (the one for shochu, feed) of rice and examine about rice-transplanting time or way of manure.
- About kind to be suitable for non-staple food stored rice, we examine about rice-transplanting time by cigarette raising the second crop and way of manure.
Non-staple food stored rice
Tea business section
The choice of tea excellence kind corresponding to the mechanization management system of Kuma area
- We choose excellent kind of tea which fitted Kuma area.
- We investigate growth and the vermination situation of tea and use for judgment of the crops of the year and provide as local instruction material.
The growth situation of sprout of tea
Proof of improvement in quality technology by tea plantation environment improvement in Kuma area
Condition of the soil considerably gets worse around tea plantation which we went ahead through of the age of a tree and reduces quality of tea.
Therefore we examine the cause in the soil improvement by the soil diagnosis result.
In addition, we perform including the cultivation method to coat tea tree in kanrei* ten days ago from crop 7th and consider about improvement in quality effect by them.

Fruit tree section
The choice of premature delivery peach excellence kind suitable for greenhouse culture of Kuma area
We choose excellent kind of premature delivery peach suitable for tunnel house cultivation and examine about the cultivation management.
The excellent kind choice of premature delivery peach
It is high quality and is developed technique low cost in premature delivery peach greenhouse culture of Kuma area
We examine about harvest of premature delivery peaches proper time in tunnel house cultivation.
Tunnel house cultivation of peach
Development of high-quality production engineering corresponding to consumers needs of chestnut in Kuma area
The weather, kind, the age of a tree, growing power of a tree, crop sort fruits and, about putrefactive cause of chestnut, are checking relations with shipment methods.
fuhaika of chestnut
Establishment of the production, use technology of nihonguri "porotan" where the inner skin is easy to come off
About new kind "porotan", we examine about method and method of the pruning to have of narienka early.
Chestnut new article class "porotan"
