I am quite sure that even us folks down here will see higher prices for veggies due to this! I hope the people get back on their feet soon!

Anything to raise prices and make profits, except the consumer.  Always an excuse by the greedy farmers. If farming was such a nonprofit industry then no one would be a farmer.

I hope the Japanese government do not use this disaster to secretly redistribute those other black bags in Fukushima.

I wonder how they calculate those yen numbers in what must be a state of some chaos..... its' a pity all government actions don't proceed with such despatch as the compiling of statistics.

Could it not be more a case of agricultural damage causes rain disaster? Massive efforts are expended in re-shaping the country at the risk of creating unstable landscapes.

If farming was such a nonprofit industry then no one would be a farmer. nonprofit is the wrong word its a welfare industry, funded by the taxpayer , they consume about 5% of the annual budget but represent less than 1% of the economy, with taxpayer support many wouldn't be farming
