Message from Rice Producer

In recent years, the concern for the safety of agricultural and livestock products has grown enormously.
The modernization and productivity improvement principal of agriculture from the postwar era turned agriculture products into chemical-based products, so consumers will have to pay for the consequence.
Considering those backgrounds, the price might be cheap although it is in large quantity.

Meanwhile in present, people become more consumptive.
Maybe it is best to not only concerned about the taste and quality, but also about the food safety as well.
Because there are people who are concerned about the food safety, agricultural products such as “pesticide-free” are currently in trend.
However, there are standards for those "pesticide-free" products. And there are many different cultivation methods.
We are building a safe and delicious farming method from many of those methods that are pesticide-free and doesn't use any chemical fertilizer.

  • 1. Keep on maintaining the field's fertility to make the constitution of rice stronger.
    It will make the rice plant become strong against diseases and pests.
  • 2. Reduce the number of chemical fertilizers and use natural fertilizer instead to harvest rich and nutritious food.

It is The Suda Corporation's way of thinking about agriculture.

Rice can actually grow even without pesticides and fertilizers.
It can grow with the original power from the rice, and it can still grow without human's hands.
That is the awaken power from the plants.

Besides, if you give only natural fertilizers to it, you can make safe rice grown only with substances that exist in nature.
