Interview with Kengo Miura
Hokkaido is the country's largest potato producing area with a share of 80% (produced in 2017). The place of origin of potatoes is said to be higher than 3000 meters above sea level in the Central Andes Mountains in South America. It is strong against cold, the temperature of cultivation is 15 to 21 degrees, suitable for cool Hokkaido climate, from spring to autumn. Since the cultivation period can be secured for a long time, the yield is high. Potatoes are rich in nutrients such as vitamins C, B1, potassium and fiber. Vitamin C, which has the effect of strengthening blood vessels, contains about five times the amount of apples, and its main feature is that starch is gelatinized even when heated, making it difficult for vitamin C to be lost. Depending on the application, about 50 varieties such as potatoes and make-in are planted in Hokkaido.

I was not allergic to myself, but I was worried that there were few allergies and atopic children in my childhood when I became a college student, there were several people in class. is. Since I was working in Tokyo, I have visited farmers and asked them how to grow pesticide-free vegetables. I never thought it would work. When I returned to my hometown of Sapporo and was thinking about what to do next, a friend from Hokkaido told me that a farmer would be right. It has been 18 years since I started farming in Chitose City using the new farming system in Hokkaido. I chose Chitose because I had a friend who introduced me to a farmhouse here. Also, I thought about where to sell the produced agricultural products, so I thought it would be better near Sapporo. I started with two hectares of new agriculture standards, but the farmers who made me a chance to become a farmer bought all the things I made, who did not even know the word “no” in agriculture. I think I was very blessed.
