Abstract

The Hokkaido and Tohoku districts in northern Japan (cf. Figure 1.1) are major rice producing areas, accounting for about one-third of total Japanese rice production. However, these districts exhibit large interannual fluctuations of rice yield, because they are situated near the northern limit of production. The coefficient of variation of the yield index (representing annual yields) is higher here than elsewhere, amounting to 30.7% in Hokkaido and 13.9% in Tohoku (Uchijima, 1981; see also Subsection 3.3 above).
