This is the VOA Special English Agriculture Report.


Japan's nuclear crisis meaning greater demand for imported food and less competition from Japanese products on world market. But it also means the Japanese farmers and others who make self foods have to worry about their future.


The ** sells fish at one of the Japan's busiest fish market. But now, there are fewer fish to sell.


Fish supplys through radiation contaminated have been totally hold.


The radiation is the Fukushima nuclear power station by the March,11th earthquake and tsunami. The extent of problems are still not clear.


Last Friday, China joined a number of countries that have banned imports food from the effected areas. Chinese media said the banned items include milk products, fruit, vegetables and sea food. Singarpore also has a ban in place. Restaurant Manager Kwoneey Hang says some people are worried about eating Japanese foods.


Consumer confidence is yes. So what shaken. I would say amongst some of Singarpore popular, but they can be I think.


The United States has also banned foods from radiation affected areas and so has the Japanese government itself.


Radioactive particles travel in the wind and get absorbed into soil with the help of rain and snow. Then, plant roots take up the material and the plants become contaminated. Animals eat the plants, and their products become contaminated. Some kinds of radiation stay environment longer than others.


Medical physicist Gerond Pushberg is the radiation expert at the University of California Davids. Professor Pushberg says removing the top soil might make the land save for use. But it depends on the depth of radioactive material. And for now, he says it is too early to take any measures. Experts say the ocean will help dilute radiation in sea water. But the tsunami also destroyed sea food, sink fish boats and labelled processing plants. Charles Eveles studied the politics of energy at the Brinks Institution in Washington D.C. Mr. Evenzer says the danger to adult from radiation contaminated food is overstayed.


Still, the affected areas of Northeastern Japan are deeply depended on agriculture and fish he says. So the economy could suffer the most.
