According to Kyodo news agency, Japan's National Federation of agricultural associations and fertilizer industry groups recently announced that zero use of plastic coated controlled-release fertilizer will be realized in 2030. The move aims to prevent the micro plastics released by the film from threatening rivers and marine ecosystems. Relevant industry groups said that in the future, they will strive to popularize paddy field management and recycling methods that do not release plastics to the majority of farmers in Japan, and are committed to developing fertilizer and planting technologies that do not use plastics.
