By Yoshimi Kuroda

Kuroda makes use of quantitative measures to enquire the rice construction constitution and results of agricultural guidelines in Japan over the second one 1/2 the twentieth century. just about all regulations have performed adverse roles in moving paddy lands from small- to large-scale farms, which has bogged down to modernize the rice region.

Higgs, Supersymmetry and Dark Matter After Run I of the LHC

This paintings used to be nominated as a superb PhD thesis by way of the LPSC, Université Grenoble Alpes, France. The LHC Run 1 was once a milestone in particle physics, resulting in the invention of the Higgs boson, the final lacking piece of the so-called "Standard version" (SM), and to big constraints on new physics, which problem renowned theories like weak-scale supersymmetry.

Much more than this, Professor Sawada used to tell me that rice-producing agriculture is the basis of Japanese culture; the English word agri-“culture” shows it. I was deeply impressed by his teachings and had a strong interest and even love for studying agricultural economics. While I was studying hard as a graduate student at Kyushu University, the late Professor Sawada recommended that I study at the Food Research Institute of Stanford University. Consequently, I submitted my application to Stanford in November 1969.

On the other hand, although production of vegetables, fruit, and livestock consistently increased during 1956–97, it was far less than that of rice. 2 indicates a decreasing trend in rice production (though with some fluctuation). On the other hand, the share of vegetables, fruit and livestock increased between 1956 and 1993 but returned a decreasing trend from 1993 onwards. 1 in Chapter 1). So, although the share of rice production in Tohoku had a decreasing trend and the share of livestock had an increasing trend over time, the share of rice absolutely overwhelmed the share of livestock for the entire study period 1956–97.

Behind such movements in the real total output, production of livestock and vegetables sharply increased from the early-1960s through to around the mid-1980s; in the case of fruit, however, production reached its peak around the late-1970s. 1 Changes in the indexes of total output, total crops, rice, vegetables, fruit, other crops, and livestock for 1960–2004 at 2000 prices: all Japan Source: The statistical Department.
