AMDA's newest project, AMDA Food Program
AMDA Food Program is a program aiming to spread organic farming in Asia, based on the motto, "Food is the source of life".
AMDA Notoro Farm opened in Notoro district in Shinjo Village, Okayama Prefecture in April 2011, in a village that established an ordinance "Asian Organic Agricultural Platform Promotion" in 2010.
We hope to transfer our agricultural technology to different Asian countries in the future. In the autumn of the first year, AFP harvested 2 tons of rice. This year's harvest was about 1.6 tons.
In October this year, in order to introduce and promote our new project, an AFP project officer and the mayor of Shinjo Village visited Tokyo to deliver the new harvested rice and Shinjo Village products to the Embassies of Bolivia, Cambodia, Honduras, Albania and Taiwan. They plan to go back this month to visit the Embassies of Malaysia, Turkey, Bangladesh, and India with the agricultural products.
As part of their future event in 2013, AFP is planning to open an AMDA Farm in Indonesia, and Shinjo Village is planning to receive farmers from Indonesia for organic agriculture training.
