Content: This item is a detailed farming plan aimed at achieving food self-sufficiency at Japanese camps in Rabaul. The original was submitted on 22 November 1945 in reply to an order of the Australian forces (AG 5040). Allocation of farm land, maintenance of existing crops, planting and maintenance of new crops and production of seasonings (e.g. salt and soy sauce) are discussed in detail. The document briefly refers to livestock production and maintenance of farming equipment. Yields, consumption, area of land required and period necessary for harvest were estimated for main crops and presented in tabular form. Copies of the plan and a separate plan for rice production were distributed among the heads of camps for reference.
