Nitrogen fertilizer in the Senkaku Islands (Ryukyu Shimpo)

Nitrogen fertilizer 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 in Kobito (Kuba Island) in 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, it will reportedly be most suitable for sugar-cane growing areas. It is also highly effective as a fertilizer for lilies, and should also be most efficacious for ordinary agricultural products. (Kobe Shimbun)
