Yellow sand has farmers worried

NOJ / TV Asahi -- Apr 14
Anxiety is growing about yellow sand as lettuce harvest reaches its peak in Ibaraki Prefecture.

Sunny lettuce, which is popular in salads, is at the peak of harvest at farms in Koga City. Farmers say it's difficult to confirm with the naked eye the extent of yellow sand, however, the harvested crops feel a little more sticky than usual. In addition to warm days, there has only been a moderate amount of rainfall.
