Hi, Dear Folks!

A really interesting article has been serialized in the blog of Nezusan, Zenko Onagi. This seems to be very helpful for people all over the world to know what happened in the Japanese society during the WWII and after. So, I translated it into English by using the Google translator with some corrections.



Miracle Wheat and Norin No.10
http://nezu3344.com/blog-entry-4318.html



I talked about soybeans and Manchuria in yesterday's article, so this time I would like to talk about wheat.



Wheat is one of the world's three largest grains, along with rice and corn.
Among them, wheat has the largest production (= consumption).
In Europe and the United States, where bread and pasta are staple foods, wheat is the most important item for national food self-sufficiency, so every country controls wheat production.

It is a government with a nation.
It is natural to give top priority to the national food.
Because if the country does not manage and stockpile, the people will starve in the event of an emergency.
Therefore, in any country, the wheat produced domestically is first secured by the government to reserve for consumption in its own country, and the surplus is sent to export.

In Japan, however, there are few wheat fields that have been seen anywhere in the country before the war.
Wheat, which had a self-sufficiency rate of 100 percent, now relies on imports for 90 percent of its annual consumption of about 6 million tons.
The import destination is 1st USA, 2nd Canada, 3rd Australia.
In short, Japan is buying wheat from the victorious countries of the Great East Asia War.

However, the reason why Japan "buys" wheat from the Allies is because they have surplus production.
If it is a bad crop, the amount of wheat sent to Japan will be drastically reduced.
And the wheat we are importing is actually wheat born in Japan.

In 1945, GHQ, which entered Japan as a victorious nation, collected a large amount of seeds of new crops developed and researched by Japan and sent them to the United States.
I took it all up.
The center of this movement was S. C. Salmon(Samuel Cecil Salmon (1885–1975)), an American agronomist.

He came to Japan as an agricultural advisor to GHQ and learned about wheat named “Norin No.10” developed in Japan.
He went to Iwate National Agricultural Experiment Station and inspected “Nori 10” before harvesting.
So he saw a new variety of wheat that no one in the world had ever seen.

At that time, wheat produced in the world was tall.
The height at harvest is about 120 cm.
However, “Norin No.10” is about 60 cm tall.
In fact, the wrinkled wrinkles were several times the amount of American wheat.

In fact, this was very important when growing wheat.
Half the height means that the nutrients that you absorb from the ground are one-eighth that of tall varieties.
This is because the nutrients required for leaves and stems are low.

Until then, wheat produced in the United States was tall, large and fruitless, so in order to increase the yield of wheat, it was necessary to plant the wheat at a high density anyway.
For that reason, it is tremendous because it was planted from seedlings to seedlings at intervals of about 15 cm.

It becomes a tremendous density when you speak.
However, if you do this, the nutrients of the farmland will be absorbed, and the land will fade quickly.
For this reason, you have to rest the land once a year.
In other words, the vast farmland had to be idle.

However, “Norin No.10” is planted every 50 cm.
Moreover, it is short and has small stems and leaves.
It does not absorb excess nutrients from the ground.
Yet it produces much more fruit than tall wheat.
In other words, the wheat yield per unit area was 3 to 5 times that of US wheat at that time without dying the land.

The agronomist Salmon was very very astonished at it.
He collected all the seeds of “Norin No.10” and brought them back to Tokyo and sent them to the US agronomists under the name of “Norin Ten”.

One of the recipients of this seed was Washington State's O. A. Vogel(1907-1991).

He cultivated and increased the amount of “Norin Ten” obtained from Salmon and sold it to farmers across the country under the name “Gains”, a new wheat.
This seed was a big hit nationwide.
In addition, it has produced tremendous volumes throughout the United States, and the yield of wheat has increased four times at a stretch.

The big hit with “Gains” doesn't just mean that the yield is high and the land won't die.
Because it is short and stable, the stems will not fall over even if you grow the fruit.
This is important because wheat that has fallen during cultivation cannot be harvested.

The rumors were heard by Dr. Norman Borlaug(Norman Ernest Borlaug, March 25, 1914 – September 12, 2009),

Why can you eat wheat now?: The Story of Miracle Wheat and Norin Ten_a0386130_12134939.jpg

an American agriculturist who was studying agriculture in Mexico.
The reason he studied wheat in Mexico was because Mexico was hot and humid, sober and suitable for growing wheat.
However, in Mexico there was an endemic disease of rust on wheat.
When this happened, the harvest was drastically reduced, and Mexico was starved in famine each time.

Borlaug himself went to Mexico to study wheat resistant to rust.
Finally, a variety of disease-resistant varieties was completed.
The wheat that he completed was “tall”, strong in disease, and abundant.
It's perfect to hear this, but it's too tall and tall.
Because the tip is heavy, wheat falls before harvesting.
The fallen wheat does not grow and cannot be harvested. As a result, the new variety of wheat developed by Borlaug has resulted in a significant decrease in the yield.
That's why Borlaug was in trouble.
The information that jumped into it was the great success of “Gains”.

As soon as Borlaug ordered "Gains" to Mexico, he immediately crossed it with the variety he developed.
Finally, he developed an ideal wheat that is strong against disease and has a high level of resilience, is short, does not fall during the harvest season, does not fade the land.
And thanks to this, Borlaug became a UN agricultural officer.

As an UN agency member, he visited agriculture in developing countries, invited agricultural researchers from various countries to Mexico to give technical guidance, and gave them new seeds of wheat seeds. We have started a system that allows people to take home.
The system was “newly started”.

As I mentioned at the beginning, wheat is an important domestic ingredient, and even in Mexico, it was strictly prohibited to take seeds outside the United States.
In other words, what happened was that S. C. Salmon took seeds from Japan.

***

Now, in 1965, when Borlaug was revised to the Mexican law, a new variety of wheat was finally introduced to the world.
From this year to the next year, India and Pakistan were devastated due to cold damage.
Tens of millions of people died of starvation.

Borlaug has sent this new seed to India in tens of thousands of tons.
And when the seeds were sown, the yield of wheat in India doubled all over the country, and the food was stabilized to a level where it could be self-sufficient in Pakistan.
This incident triggered the Borlaug wheat to be called “miracle wheat”.
It has become popular throughout the world and has dramatically increased the world's wheat yield.

Currently, 600 million tons of wheat are produced worldwide.
However, the area of ​​farmland (planting) has not changed since 1960.
World wheat production in 1960 was 200 million tons.
In other words, Borlaug's “Miracle Wheat” has tripled the world's wheat yield.
This is the “Green Revolution”.

About 200 years ago, British economist Thomas Robert Malthus argued,
"The world's population will soon exceed its ability to grow food,
and the population will not grow any further."
However, “miracle wheat” has improved the world food situation, and the world's population has tripled from 200 years ago.
The world's population increased by the increase in wheat yield.

Borlaug won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1970 for his efforts to improve the world's food shortages.
But for a long time, the reason why Borlaug's “miracle wheat” was created was still a mystery.
One day, from Borlaug's mouth itself it was told us that “miracle wheat” was actually the parent varieties of “Norin Ten”, which was born in Japan.

There are hundreds of wheat varieties that support the survival of humankind around the world.
They are all children of “Norin Ten” developed in Japan.

Dr. Gonjiro Inazuka, a Japanese agronomist, developed “Norin No.10”.
By the way, Dr. Gonjiro Inatsuka is also developing “Norin No.1”.
“Norin No.1” is the parent of Koshihikari and Sasanishiki.

China is currently the world's top producer of wheat.
However, China was not originally the world's top producer.

Dr. Gonjiro Inazuka, who developed “Norin No.10” during the war, was invited to Beijing North China Institute of Industrial Science for agricultural guidance, and as a result of improving and teaching wheat, this was the case.

Dr. Inazuka appealed to the National Party government after the end of the war, saying “Don't go home” and stayed in China for two years after the end of the war.
It was not until 1947 that he was back on the mainland.
Thanks to this, China's wheat yield has tripled, and China's population, which was 500 million at the time, is now 1.5 billion, or tripled.

***

Now, from here on, I felt that I looked back on this process.
Please feel free to forgive any rudeness.

As you know, in the previous war, Japan made a breakthrough in the first half.
At that time, the Imperial Army and Navy had a strength close to that of God.
There were no troops in the US, Britain, and Buddha that were comparable to the Japanese army.
MacArthur, who was protecting the Philippines, was angry at my army, showing off his powerful army.

Moreover, our army, which is making the battle, complies with the Hague Convention on the Land War, and does not attack the area until the civilians of the battlefield leave.
The attack was only enemy military facilities.
Nevertheless, he continued to win.
Indeed, the Japanese army was the world's strongest and imperial army leading to God.

However, after a certain day, our army was defeated.
It was as if the camellia had fallen, and the hand to hit was behind the scenes.

I think there.
Perhaps the eight million Japanese gods were looking forward to the future.
What would happen if Japan won that war or had a peace treaty with the United States and England in 1958?
Perhaps political and military adversaries with the United States and Britain continue.
India and Pakistan remain British territories.

Japan already had “Agricultural Forestry No. 10”, but the export of three major grain seeds is prohibited except in friendly countries.
If that is the case, during the bad harvest of India and Pakistan that took place in 1965, “Agricultural Forestry No. 10” would not reach the British territory.
In other words, it is easy to imagine that in this country, probably 100 million units were killed.

As Japan ended the war and GHQ brought back “Norin No.10” developed in Japan to the United States, the wheat yield in the United States increased dramatically, making it more disease-resistant in Mexico and producing a miracle wheat However, it has spread to the world, the world's population has more than tripled, and now it has reached 7 billion, and India and Pakistan were able to minimize starvation.
India is now an exporter of wheat.

On the other hand, if Japan did not win continuously from the beginning to the middle of the war, then there would have been no independence of the East Asian countries, and no equality of the race of the world had been established.

The will of the eight million gods is immeasurable to us.
However, I wonder how the above facts could be judged and acted by the 8 million gods who could know the future.
Will it lead to world hunger by winning Japan to the end?
Or will you try to make the world's people happy even if you lead Japan to the defeat?

I think it's probably the latter.
That is just my imagination.
But the wheat developed in Japan certainly saved the world from hunger and tripled the world's population.
The grand purpose of racial equality and the end of colonial rule, which Japan once raised, has already been achieved.....

Moreover, Japan, which should have become a burnt field, has grown from the poorest state of the world immediately after the end of the war to the richest country in the world in a short period of time.
Thanks to that, even politicians who should protect the country have gained peace and prosperity enough to “peace blur”.

In other words, the 236,000-pillared heros who sleep in Yasukuni have not only achieved racial equality in the world, but also saved the world from hunger and realized Japan's peace, security and prosperity after the war, haven't they ?
And when we learn about it humbly and learn to appreciate the spirits, it seems that Japan and the world will have another great development again.

* This article is a renewal of the June 2010 article.
Thank you for reading.




This is a real history about wheat and Norin No.10, which was totally covered by GHQ and the deep state in USA.

As the Westerners or foreign tourists all know, the Japanese are originally vegetarians eating rice and wheat as well as Soybeans for protein for more than thousands years. Therefore, some Japanese have very deep knowledge about plants, vegetables, fruits, as well as rices and wheats.

Wheat that you eat now are all made in Japan or made by Japanese, namely, by Dr. Gonjiro Inazuka.

Salute, Dr. Gonjiro Inazuka !
