More treasures revealed in the Senkaku Islands

For some years, Professor and Doctor of Agriculture Tsuneto has been enthusiastically mediating in the excavation of 100,000 tsubo (about 330 km2) of nitrogen fertilizer deposits on Kobito (Kuba Island). This island boasts one of the richest stores of resources in the whole of the Senkaku Islands, belonging to the business operated by Koga Tatsushiro. According to recent reports, Mr Koga has now concluded a contract for excavation and sale with a certain fertilizer company.
Once a sales route for this fertilizer is opened, prominent experts say that the fertilizer will have positive effects on agriculture. Thus, based on firm assurances by Dr Tsuneto, an authority in this field, it is clear that the business should undoubtedly be very profitable in terms of agricultural output.
