Application of EM technology to long periods of rain, lack of sunshine, storms, heavy rains, etc. 

The level of abnormal weather is increasing year by year. From the level of energy from the sun and beyond the Earth this is not unusual, even if it occurs frequently, but the problem should be considered as a decrease in the energy rectification power of the earth.

I have discussed many times the natural disaster countermeasures using EM technology, and the basic principle this is based on is the total power of EM, which has antioxidant and non-ionizing effects, and the ability to convert harmful energy into detoxified or useful energy through a catalytic function.

Through this series of articles and in DND (Digital New Deal), I have introduced the effects of EM on suppressing the absorption of radioactivity and extinguishing radioactivity, which were also published in international magazines, and how most of the problems with radioactivity in Fukushima were solved by utilizing EM.

Therefore, Fukushima’s next challenge is for the region to develop into a global organic farming area and at the same time make it the best health resort that takes advantage of the hormesis effect of low doses of radioactivity.  

I have repeatedly talked about this in the environmental forum, “Utsukushima EM Paradise,” and Fukushima Prefecture is also beginning to show an awareness of the path to organic farming, as reported by the Fukushima Minpo newspaper.

The case of Fukushima introduced this time connects up with the “Oishi 3-chan Club,” which I introduced in the 158th of DND, but it should be shared as EM information on measures against long periods of rain and lack of sunshine. The following are comments provided Mr. Shintani and Mr. Okumoto.

 

Sakura Farmers (a cooperative group of several local farms) and the Oishi 3-chan Club, whom Mr. Okumoto is instructing in EM technology as part of the Fukushima organic farming promotion project, exhibited at the Fukushima Summer Festival in Station Square 2020, held on Sunday, August 8th, where they sold EM grown vegetables. This was well received, and they sold 90% of the vegetables they brought. Mr. Kazuyuki Sato of Sakura Farmers made an excellent poster, and here we include the text of the poster and the newspaper article related to the content.

"The rainy season in 2020 has brought many rainy days, and shipments of vegetables are low all over the country, with prices rising to levels not previously seen. However, at EM Sato Farm we use EM and do not use any chemical fertilizers or pesticides, and we have achieved high quality and an abundant harvest. We are selling potatoes and cucumbers for only 100 yen per bag to thank our customers who support us, the Sakura Farmers.”

This year, despite the poor growth of agricultural products due to bad weather, EM Sato Farm has been able to produce and ship high-quality vegetables by utilizing EM technology, which is  welcome news, and we thought it was a good example to convey the merits of EM to farmers and consumers.

Supporting Producers of Organic Agricultural Products 
-Prefectural Policy

Targeting Demand of Stay-at-Home Customers/
Marketing to the Greater Tokyo Area in Autumn

The prefecture will increase support for producers to expand the market for organic agricultural products, as a move to dispel rumors regarding agricultural products produced in Fukushima prefecture. This fall, they will hold the first business meetings and sales events in Tokyo that will bring together restaurants and wholesalers to showcase the appeal of organic agricultural products produced in Fukushima. They will accelerate sales to the Tokyo metropolitan area in light of the increasing orders for agricultural products due to the demand from “stay-at-home people” resulting from the novel coronavirus pandemic.

After assessing the status of the novel coronavirus infection, Fukushima prefecture is planning to hold business meetings from September to November with about twenty producers of rice, vegetables, and mushrooms in the prefecture, and about twenty businesses such as wholesalers, restaurants and lodgings in the Tokyo metropolitan area. They are also going to hold a sales event for general consumers, aiming to create an opportunity for regular purchases of organic agricultural products produced in Fukushima prefecture.

According to the prefecture’s analysis, orders for food products via the Internet have increased due to the spread of the coronavirus, and attention has been focused on organic agricultural products produced in the prefecture. First, the prefecture will support the expansion of sales markets in the Tokyo metropolitan area and support production activities.

At Nitsuma Organic Farm in Hirono town, which grows organic rice, the average number of online orders from February to March this year was just under 300 per month, which is about five times that of the average year. President Ryohei Nitsuma (61) said, “Selling organic agricultural products is effective in introducing what delicious and high-quality products we grow here, and in attracting people to Fukushima-grown products. I look forward to collaborating with related organizations and expanding our markets even further.”

Cultivated areas are decreasing

The cultivated area of organic agricultural products in the prefecture is decreasing year by year.
The transition is shown in the graph. The area was 282 hectares in 2010, but dropped to 157 hectares in 2019.

In principle, organic agricultural products are cultivated without pesticides or chemical fertilizers, and it takes more time and effort to control harmful insects and weeds.
The prefecture considers that the decrease was caused by the suspension of farming due to the effects of the Great East Japan Earthquake and the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant accident, and the abandonment of farming due to the aging of producers.

As a support measure, the prefecture is subsidizing new applications and renewal costs for obtaining Organic JAS certification. Once certified, the product can be labeled with the word “organic” using either the Japanese or the English term in Katakana.

The following is EM information about what is happening in Okinawa.


Typhoons No. 8, 9 and 10 all passed outside the barrier line centered on the main island of Okinawa, as I have discussed before. The Meteorological Observatory explains that Typhoon No. 10 did not develop until a warning was given because Typhoons No. 8 and No. 9 stirred the sea and the seawater subsequently temperature dropped. That seems only natural, but the reality is that typhoons that have approached Okinawa and touched the huge barriers of Okinawa are rectified, so shock waves are less likely to occur, and there is only minimal damage despite the wind speeds.

In other words, typhoons last year and two years ago that did not approach Okinawa have caused unimaginable damage to the Kansai and Kanto regions. A long period of follow up observation, is needed, but we note that this has been the case since 2014.

Typhoon No.10
No special warning issued

Meteorological Observatory states “Typhoon No. 8 and 9 stirred up the sea”

Typhoon No.10, which was expected to be a record storm of “special warning-class force,” moved away from the Okinawa region without developing as much as forecast. It is believed that the reason is that the sea surface temperature, which was considered to be the cause of the development of Typhoon No.10, has dropped. It is possible that Typhoon No. 8 and 9 that approached just before stirred up the seawater and suppressed the rise in sea surface temperature. (Reported by Shogo Mitsuzumi of the local news section)

As of 9 am on the 4th, Typhoon No.10 was forecast to have a central pressure of 915 hectopascals, a maximum wind speed of 55 meters near the center, and a maximum instantaneous wind speed of 80 meters at 9 am on the 6th. The Daito Islands region was expected to have a maximum wind speed of 50 to 60 meters and a maximum instantaneous wind speed of 70 to 85 meters on the 6th. It was expected to approach with ferocious force, however it did not develop to that extent and no special warning was announced.

The Meteorological Observatory believed that the reason for this lies in the relationship between Typhoons No. 8 and 9 and the sea surface temperature. As the sea surface temperature rises, the amount of water vapor increases, so typhoons develop using water vapor as energy. Looking at the sea surface temperature data of the Japan Meteorological Agency, the water temperature was
higher than normal in the sea near Okinawa on the 2nd, while it was lower than normal on the 5th to 6th when the Daito Islands entered the storm zone.

This decrease in sea surface temperature is thought to have suppressed the development of Typhoon No.10. It is possible that the strong winds of Typhoons No.8 and 9, which proceeded in a different path from Typhoon No.10, lowered the sea surface temperature by stirring the seawater and lifting up colder seawater. The Meteorological Observatory also thinks that Typhoon No.10 took in the dry air in the upper atmosphere, which is also the reason why it did not develop.

Even if the sea surface temperature temporarily drops due to the passage of a typhoon, it is said that the water temperature will return to normal after a certain period of time, and the Meteorological Observatory is calling for close attention being paid to future typhoons.
