TOKYO -- Japan's agriculture ministry has begun a project to boost demand for Japanese farming technology in India, by setting up a test field there to demonstrate the effective use of advanced agrochemicals, fertilizers and high yield seeds to local farmers.

The test field will be located near Ahmedabad in Gujarat, western India, an area where economic development is under way. The agriculture ministry will showcase Japanese farming technologies by partnering with local nongovernmental organizations. These technologies are aimed at increasing production of cucumbers, tomatoes and leaf vegetables.
