Wise Giken Co., Ltd.
Y’s Giken, which promotes agricultural DX, has established a regional revitalization promotion business base in Tsubaki-cho, Anan City, Tokushima Prefecture, through “”Agricultural DX to Show”” and “Agriculture-Related Population Creation”.
Y’s Giken, which promotes agricultural DX as SkyFarm (R) ︎ (Sky Farm), has opened “Live Tech Farm Tokushima” with the aim of creating a related population in the agricultural area, taking advantage of the attention that is focused on the introduction of technology to the agricultural area.
On November 20, 2022, in Tsubaki-cho, Anan City, Tokushima Prefecture, Y’s Giken Co., Ltd. (Headquarters: Shibuya-ku, Tokyo; Representative Director: Satoshi Kitada), which promotes agricultural DX as SkyFarm(R)? Under the partnership (business cooperation) with agricultural production corporation Nokosha, we will open “Live Tech Farm Tokushima” and a satellite office.
The main role of “Live Tech Farm Tokushima”
■ Creation of practical fields for “show agriculture DX”
■Regional revitalization by creating an “agricultural population” ■ Dissemination of information on the creation of “agriculture DX / agriculture-related population”
It is to contribute to the realization of the “Agricultural DX Concept” through these three points.
This initiative will contribute to the “Agricultural DX Concept” put together by the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries on March 25, 2021 from the field of agriculture in mountainous areas in Japan.
“Live Tech Farm Tokushima”
 Creation of practical fields for “show agriculture DX”
In March 2021, the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries compiled the “Agricultural DX Concept”, which is a digital
transformation of the agricultural scene, that is, the introduction of smart agricultural technology and data-driven farm management to create value that accurately meets consumer needs. The transformation to creative and providing agriculture (FaaS (Farming as a Service)) is a major issue that must be tackled with all efforts in the Japanese agricultural scene.
The current situation in which digital technology and data science are brought into agricultural regions through smart agriculture has attracted attention not only from the farmers who are the parties concerned, but also from various regions, companies, and human resources in fields that have not been involved in agriculture until now. I’m here. On the other hand, the current situation is that there are still few fields where cutting-edge agricultural machinery and DX-type agricultural equipment are in operation.
At “Live Tech Farm Tokushima”, by practicing “showing” new
agricultural initiatives, we will contribute to the promotion of agricultural DX in the local Tokushima Prefecture, and by extension, the promotion of agricultural DX initiatives in the entire domestic agricultural region. To do.
 Regional revitalization by creating an “agricultural population” Many of Japan’s agricultural regions face problems such as declining population, aging population, and lack of workers. The promotion of cross-sectoral activities, not only in the agricultural sector but also in non-agricultural sectors, is expected to attract the attention of a wide range of human resources, which in turn is expected to revitalize the regional economy as a whole.
In “Live Tech Farm Tokushima”, I decided to express this perspective as the creation of an “agricultural population.”
In the process of promoting agricultural DX, people who have not been involved in the region or agriculture so far will become involved in the region by focusing on new technologies and work styles that will be introduced to agriculture. The creation will contribute to the revitalization of the entire economy of the agricultural region.  Dissemination of information on agriculture DX and
agriculture-related population creation
“Live Tech Farm Tokushima” not only develops the process and effects of agricultural DX in a visible manner in the region as a place to practice “agricultural DX to show”, but also widely disseminates its efforts both domestically and internationally. We will disseminate information on examples of initiatives for outside agriculture DX. In addition, by providing an online forum for exchanging information with people who are interested, we will create more “agriculture related population” and contribute to the realization of the agricultural DX concept.
[SkyFarm(R)︎ contributes to the revitalization of agricultural regions] Through the operation of “Live Tech Farm Tokushima”, SkyFarm(R)︎ (Sky Farm) visualizes the effects of smart agricultural technology (yield, labor saving, etc.), and evaluates its efficiency, safety, and stability. By communicating, we will maximize the opportunities for the diffusion of smart agricultural technology. At the same time, by building an agricultural business environment that is attractive and easy for young people to work in, the “agriculture population” (people involved in agriculture) will increase and the entire agricultural community will be revitalized. Contribute to the agricultural scene. [Reference URL]
