Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “Japan Tsunami 2011: Strawberry Farmers Use Tech to Revitalize After Disaster” – below is their description.
Since the 2011 Fukushima earthquake, tsunami and nuclear disaster in Japan, rebuilding efforts continue in hard-hit areas like the coastal town of Yamamoto known for its strawberries. Younger, business- and tech-savvy strawberry farmers are giving new hope to the local economy.
These strawberries grow in eight high-tech greenhouses where computers set the temperature and humidity to optimum growing conditions. That’s right, computers ensure the rows of bushes are sprayed with water at precise times.
The farm markets the “Migaki Ichigo” brand strawberries to fancy department stores in Tokyo, where they go for as much as 1,000 yen or about $10 per piece, as well as to customers overseas in other parts of Asia and even the Middle East.
