13th TARF Open House

The JIRCAS Tropical Agriculture Research Front (TARF) conducts research that contributes to the sustainability of agriculture and the stable production of agricultural products in tropical and subtropical developing regions of the world. For Japan, which depends on foreign countries for most of its food, the development of agricultural technology for sustainable agricultural production in developing regions is extremely important. Solutions to the world's agricultural problems are only obtained through cooperation among countries.

TARF has been conducting many research activities overseas in collaboration with research institutes in the Pacific island region and Southeast Asia. Therefore, at the Open House, we will introduce the research activities of TARF conducted overseas and in Japan, including information on the target crops and local conditions.

The 13th TARF Open House will feature a variety of events to demonstrate some of our research activities under our new logo and new catchphrase, "For the Future of the Earth and Food”. In particular, for this year's event to introduce our research, we have created new exhibits and prepared contents that can be enjoyed by both children and adults. In addition, we have increased the number of events that allow visitors to learn through hands-on experience, so that both children and adults can enjoy the whole experience of seeing, touching, and experiencing.

We hope that your participation will be an opportunity to deepen the relationship between the TARF and the public, and that the research and other information provided by TARF will be useful to the public, as well as a chance to come into contact with and understand agriculture.
