Rice Contract Farming in Hualien

 

 Introduction

 In order to promote economy in the past of Taiwan, people advocate “Living Room is Factory” policy.

Due to the agricultural land is cheaper than the others; many businessmen built the factory on the field, turned out the farms, factories and the houses were all in one area. Besides, the industrial wastes caused serious pollution, endangering the food safety in Taiwan.

 The President, Mr. Chiu-Fang Yeh was born in agricultural society in Miaoli, Taiwan. He is deeply under influence with this phenomenon.

As matter of the fact, the self-sufficiency ratio is less than 30 percent, mostly people are rely on import food. One of the reason is the government will give the subsidy to the farmer when the field fallow. Therefore, the farmer will get the money even they do not work. On the other side, most farmers are aging and the young people move to the city for a job. When these old farmer could not work anymore, they sell the field for living. There will be less agricultural field for the consequence.
