Beijing, August, according to Japanese media reports, in August 2nd, Japan's Ministry of agriculture, forestry and Fisheries released 2015 annual Japanese food self-sufficiency rate (according to the heat calculation) for 6 consecutive years 39%. This level after rice harvest of the year 1993 37%. 2015 annual climate is good, the increase of wheat yield, but saury, scallops yield reduce and rice consumption decline, resulting in the overall growth weak.

Reported that the Japanese government proposed in 2025 before the food self-sufficiency rate increased to 45%. Japan is trying to increase production of feed with rice, to replace imported domestic feed feed, but still can not find a specific way to reach the target.

The grain self-sufficiency rate calculated by heat is easily affected by the supply of grains such as rice and wheat. Japan's main edible rice self-sufficiency rate reached 100%, but the use of imported rice in domestic animal feed. Grain self-sufficiency rate has remained essentially unchanged since 1997.

The Japanese government through the provision of subsidies and other measures to encourage farmers to change from the production of staple food with rice to grow rice. However, the use of grass as the main feed of the cattle breeding industry is limited, the effect is not obvious to improve self-sufficiency rate. High hopes to play a role in stimulating the growth of the soybean grain is only a slight increase, the government's goal to achieve a yellow light from the light.

Production value by the high price of vegetables and animal products, such as the impact of the output value of the 2015 annual calculation of 2014 increased by 2 percentage points, reaching 66%. The reason for the breeding of cattle breeding breeding farmers reduced, the market price of the calf soaring.
