Here are the facts about rice in Japan:
the average tan produces happyo per year.
Just thought you should know … in case you were interested.
in other words:
The average field/paddy is 99.9 square meters (or 300 x 2 tatami mats) and produces 480kg of rice. (1056lbs)
note: from my source: the average person nowadays eats only 60kg (132lbs) of rice a year at home due to restaurants … and potatoes, bread, and pasta being readily available. I probably eat about 40 kg a year at home and another 40 kg while out and about.
How much rice do you eat?
double note: I don’t know how much wheat, corn, or potatoes grow in the average wheat, corn or potato field, but I’m sure there are wheat, corn, and potato farmers telling their Japanese teachers the facts at this very moment.
triple note: my source is old school, so I’m sure he eats about 100kg of rice a year … and other people not so much.
quadruple note: what the hell is a bushel? Farmers all over the world need to update their lingo!
