Japan, with a population of about 125 million, is a major importer of agricultural products. Japan's mountainous topography limits
the area available for farming, with a total cultivated land area of around 4.8 million hectares. Farm holdings are small, averaging
just over 1.5 hectares. Japan has producer support levels among the highest in OECD, driven in part by food security concerns
and memories of food shortages during World War II and its aftermath. The Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry, and Fisheries

A multi-feedstock approach is crucial for sustainable biofuel production in South Africa. In respect of ethanol production, biofuel
producers should be allowed to draw on a range of starch-based crops including maize. A multi-feedstock approach will enable
producers to select crops best suited to the agro-climate of the regions where their plants are situated and to minimize logistic
costs by sourcing crops grown closest to their plants. In recent months, plans to use maize to produce ethanol have raised concerns
that this could jeopardize food security in South Africa.
