Japan: MAFF Increases Crop Diversification Payments

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

The Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries (MAFF) set Japan's 2021 recommended table rice production at 6.93 million metric tons (brown rice basis), a 300,000 ton reduction from 2020 and the first time the MAFF has set this number below 7 million tons. To accelerate the production shift from table rice to other crops MAFF increased support payments for producers that convert acres to vegetables, wheat, soybeans, rice for feed, or rice for export. Local governments across Japan are highlighting potential revenue increases for converting rice paddy production to supported crops.
