Regions Asai Nursery has been involved in addressing challenges

Case 01

Establishment of a sustainable agricultural model that completely eliminates the use of fossil fuels.

Matsusaka City, Mie Prefecture
Establishment of Ureshino Agri Co., Ltd.

In 2013, Tsuji Oil Co., Ltd., Mitsui & Co., Ltd., and Asai Nursery jointly established a company(Inochio Holdings Inc. has joined in 2015).
By utilizing biomass boilers using thinned wood chips from Mie Prefecture and efficiently harnessing the heat energy from the vegetable oil and fat plant, a sustainable agricultural model was developed that completely eliminated the use of fossil fuels for greenhouse heating.


# Next-Generation Agriculture Development Independent of Fossil Fuels


Utilizing biomass boilers powered by thinned wood chips and harnessing waste heat energy from the factory to cultivate tomatoes in greenhouses.

Case 03

Development of a large-scale kiwifruit plantation by effectively utilizing fallow farmland.

Tamaki Town, Mie Prefecture
Development of Kiwifruit Plantation

In Tamaki Town, we consolidated approximately 60% of its farmland (approximately 7 hectares) lying fallow with administrative cooperation and obtained the consent of 52 landowners to develop a kiwifruit plantation. Following the Tamaki plantation, the development of another approximately 6 hectares of fields in Takano-o Town as the second plantation is underway.
Going forward, we will continue to inherit agricultural techniques while effectively utilizing fallow farmland to safeguard the foundation of food production.


# Increase in Abandoned Farmland


Collaborating with Zespri, the world's leading kiwifruit seller, and with administrative support, we are developing a highly productive large-scale kiwifruit plantation. This initiative aims to create regional employment opportunities and establish a foundation for future generations.

Case 04

Supporting the revival of businesses and the revitalization of Fukushima's regional agriculture through the training of managers and remote cultivation technology support.

Minamisoma City, Fukushima Prefecture
Achievement of target yields, cultivation manager development, and achieving profitability in management.

Minamisoma Fukko Agri was established in January 2013 with the aim of revitalizing agriculture in Minamisoma, which suffered from reputational damage owing to the impact of the Great East Japan Earthquake. It began shipments in 2016 with a cultivated area of approximately 1.5 hectares. In 2019, the Wago Group acquired the business, and Asai Nursery participated in supporting the business revival. After conducting cultivation training at Asai Nursery's Mie Farm, cultivation consulting (on-site and remote), improvements in varieties, cultivation techniques, and procurement processes for materials were implemented, contributing to increased productivity and improved management. Using common KPIs within the group, remote monitoring and regular meetings are conducted to support cultivation management and managerial development.
