Environmental Crop Science


Research for understanding crop and environment based on the agricultural field research


Our laboratory is located in Field Science Center,in Naruko Onsen, Osaki, Miyagi Prefecture, which is about 70 km north of Sendai. We focus on the development of environmentally friendly crop production technology based on agricultural field research.

More specifically, we study the nutrient dynamics in agroecosystems and the effects on crops, the rice farming system for maintaining and improving biodiversity, and the role of plant roots in crop productin and environmental impacts.
