Business overview:
We expect that competition of new products and
technology development will get fierce. We also
forecast that competition between production regions
will be intensified. This is because of
internationalization of agriculture, progress of
biotechnology, and diversification of food consumption.
Under these circumstances, we need to develop new
products and technology unique to Ibaraki Prefecture,
and spread them quickly in order to help Ibaraki
production regions to be more competitive. We also
aim to foster excellent farmers. We can vigorously
develop agriculture in Ibaraki Prefecture that way.
Ibaraki Agricultural Center* was set up in July, 1992
to conduct research, technology diffusion, and
education together effectively, which are the main
activities of agricultural technology administration.
Administrative support to solve the problems was
supposed to increase that way. Now the Center is
operating effectively in order to achieve the goal.
