Until the 1980s, Japan almost exclusively produced rice. Today, major crops in Japan include rice, potatoes, sugar beets, mandarin oranges, cabbage, barley, wheat, soy beans, tobacco, and tea. Less than 15% of the land in Japan is arable. Available farmland in Japan requires intensive cultivation. Rice paddies occupy most of the countryside. Non-paddy farmland raises wheat or barley fields in the autumn and vegetables in the summer. A large agricultural workforce is needed to tend to the land year round.
Owner-operated farms comprise most of the Japanese farming industry. Japanese farms need to hire entry-level and professional workers to fill farming and picking jobs now. Part-time picker jobs and full-time agricultural careers exist for job seekers in the Japan farming industry. Farm workers are wanted to staff planting, harvesting, and picking jobs.
