Agricultural mutual aid system
A system intended to create stability in farm management by compensating farmers for losses incurred as a result of natural disasters. Based on Japan's Agricultural Disaster Compensation Act, the system serves as a countermeasure against damage from natural disasters for Japan's farmers. Each region in Japan is served by its own NOSAI group. Kamikawa Chuo NOSAI, the agricultural mutual aid association for farmers of one city and eight towns in Asahikawa-shi, Hokkaido, and Hokkaido NOSAI, which insures all mutual aid associations located in Hokkaido, are working in collaboration with Fujitsu in this field test.
