Domination of nature
Harmony with nature
Organic farming is the method of crop and livestock production that involves much more than choosing not to use pesticides, fertilizers, genetically modified organisms, antibiotics and growth hormones. In other words, it is referred to as, low input farming and uses natural sources of nutrients such as compost, crop residues and manure, and natural methods of crop and weed control, instead of using synthetic or inorganic agrochemicals.
- To increase genetic diversity
- To promote more usage of natural pesticides
- Ensure the right soil cultivation at the right time
- Keep and build good soil structure and fertility
- Control pests, diseases and weeds
Integrated farming (also known as mixed farming) is a farming system with simultaneous activities involving crop and animal. Integrated agriculture involves farming systems with environmental, economic, social, and intergenerational sustainability. In an integrated, sustainable agriculture system, the goal is not necessarily producing immediate outputs, but rather maintaining a system of healthful production, over time. The major components of a sustainable system include economy, environment, and community. This mixed farming system recycles all wastes so that little is thrown away: one’s waste is indeed another’s food.
The resource that must be managed in such a system takes all of these related components into account. Economically, the farm operations fulfill the financial needs of the farmers and those employed by the operations. The practices in the agricultural system are executed in an environmentally sound manner, with the preservation of natural resources including soil, water, and air. The operations also sustainably provide access to food to individuals in the community, which allows for opportunities for cooperative relationships .

Productive Agriculture and Organic farming methods combine the scientific knowledge of ecology and modern technology with traditional farming practices based on naturally occurring biological processes. Relatively recent innovations in seeds, chemicals and fertilizers have enabled agricultural producers to meet the ever-growing demands of a hungry world population. Even with the rapid increases in agricultural productivity, however, challenges for the agriculture industry to supply the growing global economy with sufficient supplies of agricultural staples are greater now than ever before.
Scope and importance
The basic principle in the organic farming system is to produce maximum yield with the highest possible quality. At the same time, it should not affect the soil fertility, soil health, and environment. Due to the extensive use of chemical fertilizers, there is a huge toll on humans with the poisonous effects. Hands more and more people are in search of organic fruits and vegetables. Hence there is a steep increasing the demand of organic farming system for Organic fruits, vegetables, and foods.
The scope of organic farming in Japan has been tremendously increasing. This is mainly due to the new researches made in the field of agriculture. It has facilitated the farmers with new measures for more production eliminating the activity of bypass methods. New techniques which are being innovated are purely related to soil health during organic farming. Apart from these reasons, the discovery of various new diseases arising out of artificial production of fruits and vegetables have clearly set the minds of people for a shift to organic farming.
Health conscious is another important factor for this huge transformation. It could also be named as the race in the new lifestyle. Consumption of organic products basically spreads from one person to other. To make it clear, people have reshaped health into lifestyle. This opens up opportunities for many new entrepreneurs in Japan with a huge response from the consumers.
With regards to Food Safety Commission , Consumer Affairs Agency, Food Education program triggered far-reaching changes in the regulatory framework of food safety Food, agriculture and risk in contemporary Japan’ attempts to set the background to the theme by addressing trends and changes in the global agri-food system. Previous village-bounded studies of Japanese rural society emphasized cultural continuity, the masterful blending of modernity and tradition, and the stoic acquiescence of villagers to externally-imposed change; found organic farmers’ groups revitalizing rural economies; forming direct-marketing relations with urban consumers; linking up with farmers in the Third World. Consumers including academics, agricultural scientists, medical doctors, journalists, and others involved in various aspects of the organic farming movement in Japan, comprise more than three-quarters of the membership. It is critical of Japanese agricultural policies and of U.S. agricultural surplus export policies.
The economic importance of agriculture in Japan has rapidly declined since 1950, with the sector constituting 1.7% of national GDP and employing 4.6% of the total labour force. A striking feature of Japanese agriculture is the shortage of farmland. Japan is thus a major importer of food.
According to IFOAM & FiBL (2006), the area under organic management in Japan is 29,150 hectares, which constitutes 0.56% of the total agricultural land. There are currently 4.539 organic farms registered in Japan. Certified organic produce from Japan includes: rice, green vegetables, green tea, sweet potato, taro, pumpkin, potatoes, citrus and other fruits. Potentially, Japan can be an enormous organic food market. Currently, consumer demand exceeds domestic supply and most organic products are imported. The demand for organic food is growing rapidly in Japan and it is expected that this will continue in the future.
Young farmers emerged in qualitative fieldwork as ‘occupational edge-workers,’ crisscrossing binaries such as urban/rural, mind/body, and economic/moral. They manage risks and navigate uncertainties of natural forces, traditional village practices, neoliberal pressures to be entrepreneurial in the market, and judgment of older, purer organic farmers.
The world's third-largest economy has a mere fraction of the global market of around $90 billion and is dwarfed by the US ($45 billion), Germany ($11 billion), France ($8 billion) and China ($7 billion). According to the Ministry of Agriculture, Fishery and Forestry (MAFF), the rate of organic food is only 0.17%. Domestic organic produce is 48,596 ton, while imported organic produce is 1,295,266 ton annually. This means that domestic organic produce only has 3.6% of the market. Domestic organic processed food is 187,455 ton, while imported organic processed food is 67,777 ton. In Japan, consumers care about the safety of the products, and buy organic food only when the quality of the vegetables is excellent.

The relatively higher industrialized countries such as Australia, New Zealand, Japan, Singapore, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and the Korea are major retail markets for organic foods.
Why to Attend ???
The significance of agriculture in human life is significant. Agriculture and agricultural products are essential for us. Food, energy, medicine and so many things we are able to get from agriculture. This conference seeks to bring all such scientist, Noble Laureate, researcher, research scholar, students and people together who are involved in this field and provide them to discuss their innovation, exchange ideas and interact with each other.
- The Asia region is a decisive component in the global food chain, accounting for 19% of total global food and agriculture exports and 31% of total food and agriculture imports
- Asia’s large and growing population, coupled with rising incomes and a burgeoning middle class, will continue to drive demand for food & agricultural commodities and resources
- On the other hand, Asia cannot produce enough to support itself. Limited arable land, inadequate water and poor resource management, low farm yields, environmental and soil degradation and infrastructure inadequacy are limiting production. Consequently, Asia and especially China’s need for imports and investment locally and abroad is likely to increase
- Asia agribusiness and food & agriculture companies are likely to grow in size and scope to meet the increasing demand, national policies, rising organisational capabilities, and integration and consolidation throughout the value and supply chains
Factors limiting the agricultural production potential
Limited arable land and inadequate water resources in Asia form a natural ceiling to agricultural supply. Consolidation of farmland and better water management have the potential to boost production. At the same time, conflicting demands in land usage and water pollution act as constraints. Given a growing population and increasing demand for cereals for both food and feed, sustained increases in yields are required in Asia. However, factors such as changes in cropping patterns and diminishing returns on modern seed varieties have led to a stagnation of production growth in the last two decades. Increased use of fertilisers as farmers try to maintain productivity is also progressively degrading soil quality in many places. Increased usage of chemical pesticides has further compounded the issue of soil quality and environmental pollution. Here below are some of the major limiting Factors
- Small and fragmented holding size
- Water will be a key limiting factor
- Self-sufficiency policy
- Rising rural wages
- Impact of climate change
- The region lags in R&D spend in agriculture
- Investment in physical infrastructure (roads, ports, railway terminals)
- Storage and cold chain logistics
- Technology investment to improve farm productivity and farm-business connectivity
