Innovation, Agricultural Productivity and Sustainability in Japan

image of Innovation, Agricultural Productivity and Sustainability in Japan

In Japan, agriculture has been treated differently from other parts of the national economy. However, policy needs to evolve with new agricultural structures and the global trend towards more integrated value chains, enabling innovation and entrepreneurship in agriculture, and imposing a greater environmental responsibility on producers. Modern agriculture is a technology- and data-intensive industry, and Japan is well-positioned to introduce its competitive technology and skills to agriculture through building more collaborative agricultural innovation system.

Foreword

Innovation, Agricultural Productivity and Sustainability in Japan is a part of the OECD Food and Agricultural Reviews series. It examines the conditions in which farms and businesses in Japan undertake innovation in the food and agriculture sector to become more productive and environmentally sustainable. The review starts with an overview of the food and agriculture sector and outlines development challenges and opportunities (Chapter 2). It then considers a broad spectrum of policies according to the main channels or incentive areas through which they affect productivity growth and the sustainable use of resources (Chapter 3); the agricultural policy environment (Chapter 4); the agricultural innovation system (Chapter 5); and human capital development in agriculture (Chapter 6). Chapter 1 summarises the findings of this review and provides policy recommendations.
