Japan: Record Heat Stifles Japanese Vegetable Production

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   JA2023-0097

Record-breaking heat in the summer of 2023 has damaged summer vegetables and delayed the planting of autumn and winter vegetables in Japan. Although Japan is nearly self-sufficient for fresh vegetable consumption, it may turn to imports to make up potential supply shortfalls. The United States is a notable supplier of onions, celery, and lettuce to Japan.
