With great thanks to Hokuryu Sunflower Rice New Rice Grand Thanksgiving 2023!

Monday, October 2, 2023

On Saturday, September 30, 2023, the 2023 Hokuryu Sunflower Rice New Rice Appreciation Festival was held at the Hokuryu Agricultural and Livestock Products Direct Sales Store, Minoricchi Hokuryu.

This year, the protein content tends to be slightly higher than usual due to high-temperature disorders and drought tendencies caused by the summer heat.
