If at all possible, we farmers avoid using pesticides to fight diseases such as red blight (赤焼病 akayakebyou). Today, I trimmed my oku hikari cultivar fields in preparation for the winter. I am cutting the hedges a little higher than usual. By doing this, even if red blight (a disease that sometimes appears in late February) appears, we can just cut it away when we trim the hedges in March in preparation for the new season.
