In recent years, we have more chance to find "mugi-batake"(麦畑) wheat (barley) fields. They have served good color in country side, I think.

I don't know whether these fields are wheat or barley fields. But, I have heard that wheat for bread cannot be planted in Kyushu area, so these are wheat for "udon" or "rah-men", or barley for beer.

The government's subsidy system helps farmers increase the area of their wheat fields, I think.
