A farmer from Tamura City has said he wants to ignore orders to destroy crops from the region and intends to sell it himself to avoid the harvesting network set up to check crops before sale.

Excessive cesium was found in greenhouse grown mushrooms from Soma, Fukushima. The mushrooms had already been sent to markets in the prefecture on Tuesday, the local farmers cooperative is recalling those sent out. Authorities are claiming the wood chips used in the greenhouse may have been the cause of the contamination but no definitive cause has been established.
