A high-quality lemongrass born from a new experiment in Takeo City, Saga Prefecture.
Takeo City was experiencing an increase in fallow fields due to the aging of the people involved in agriculture. With the aim of utilizing fallow fields, countering the aging population, and revitalizing the region, Takeo City started producing lemongrass, which can be cultivated relatively easily once it has been planted. Cultivation of lemongrass is spreading as an agricultural product that is easy for aging farmers to start producing without overdoing it. In addition, the work of commercializing the harvested lemongrass is also done by the polite work of retired local elderly people. The growing environment is also produced according to JAS organic farming standards. The high-quality lemongrass grown in warm and fertile land is attracting attention as a new local specialty of Takeo City.
