Le 2018 Table ronde agriculteur mondiale est prévue pour octobre 16-17 à Des Moines, Iowa – coïncidant avec la semaine de la World Food prix Dialogue Borlaug et Colloque International.

L’approche de la table ronde GFN met en place les participants de cette année. So let’s get to know a little bit about Atsumi (Amy) Goto, and she happens to be the first GFR participant from Japan…

 

Farmer: Atsumi (Amy) Goto

Pays: Japon

Où se trouve votre ferme?

My family farm is located on the southern tip of Japan in Kumamoto Prefecture. All of our fields are located with a 28 km radius of our hometown

À quoi ressemble votre ferme? Quelle est la taille de votre exploitation agricole? Ce qui vous poussent ou soulever?

I work with my father and two older brothers on our family farm. I currently produce Japanese Green tea on 10 ha with the traditional method called Kamairi-cha. We also raise about 20 beef cattle -for breeding – which feed on forage as well as homemade rice silage.

Que recherchez-vous le plus hâte que vous vous préparez à participer à la 2018 Table ronde mondiale Farmer?

I believe that the Roundtable will be an awesome experience. It is exciting to learn about the agricultural scene in various parts of the world.

Atsumi is the first person from Japan to attend the Global Farmer Roundtable. The field is green tea.
