Changing demand of agricultural products under coronavirus outbreak

Last week, I wrote that Hyogo Prefecture produces the most amount of Sake rice in Japan. This year’s Sake demand is expected to fall 30 % from the previous year, so farmers reduced the transplant area of Sake rice. Sake demand decreased 9 % in February, 12% in March, and 21% in April from the previous year.

Demands of several agricultural products were affected by coronavirus outbreak.

Demand increase: flour, butter, pork, chicken, cabbage, chinese cabbage

Demand decrease: fruits, beef, milk, sake

Demand from decrease to increase: Cut flower (change in the mid-April)

I want to continue to watch the changes.
