Lettuce Greenhouse Farmers Facing Sales Decrease in Fukushima

17 Mar 2014
A lot of lettuce is being cultured in the green houses of Ishii Farm. Even though the cesium check of their lettuce is negative, the sales has decreased to 80% even at the unattended shops after the disaster.

However, as a result of improving the soil using EM Bokashi, swine excrement and botanical material fermented with EM, more customers started to give positive feedbacks such as it is tender and sweet, and has no bitterness.

They are planning to enlarge the greenhouse farm, weighing much on the cycle of local production for local consumption for the years ahead. Their main produce is cucumber in summer, and lettuce in winter, and the produce is always labeled with EM Bokashi Cultured sticker upon shipping.
