In the village, in addition to efforts to protect the rural environment such as repair of farm roads, weeding of waterways, legal mowing, flower bed building etc. through the discussion of the project participants, we carry out business leading to the maintenance and development of regional agriculture, I am using it.
Cultivating agricultural land on sloping land brings about various effects such as not only production of agricultural produce but also prevention of flooding and earth erosion.
However, since such land is less agricultural land with lower working efficiency and inferior productivity than the flat area, the occurrence of abandoned cultivation and the excellent function of farmland are easily lost.
Therefore, in this system, it is aimed at supporting such disadvantaged areas and to protect the excellent functions of agricultural land.
Niseko Town, we started using this system in 2000 and have been working on it as a fourth measure for 5 years from 2015 to 2019.
