This is the VOA special English agricultural report
Japan’s nuclear crisis may mean greater demand for imported food and less competition from Japanese products on world markets. But it also means that Japanese farmers and others soon make an self food have to worry about their future. Natsumichi Tanaka sells fish at one of Japan’s busiest fish markets, but now there are fewer fish to sell.
“fish suppliers from the ideation containment don’t use have been totally hold.”
The radiations is from the Fukushima nuclear power station that was damaged by the March 11th ‘s earthquake and tsunami.
The extent of the problems are still not clear. Last Friday China joined a number of other countries that have banned imports of food from the affected areas. Chinese media said the banned items include milk products, fruit, vegetables and seafood. Singapore also has a ban in place. Restaurant manager Connie Hong says some people are worried about eating Japanese food.
“consumer confidence is, yes, so much chicken. I will say a monster, some of the Singapore popular but that can’t be helped 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 the 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 radiations stay in the environment longer than others. Medical physicist Gerold Bushburg is a radiation expert at the university of California.
Professor Bushburg says removing the top soil might make the land safe 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 seawater, but the tsunami also destroy seafood, sank fishing boats, and leveled processing plants.
Charles Abenjey studies the politics of energy at the booking institution in Washington DC. Mr. Abenjey says the danger to adults from radiation contaminated food is over stated. Still the affected areas of Northeastern Japan are deeply dependent on agriculture and fish, he says. So their economy could suffer the most.
And that’s the VOA special English agricultural report.
