The study aims to explain the main features of food production in Tottori prefecture focusing on agricultural enterprises. First, the number of farmers and farm households, the area of cultivated land, and their spatial distribution were analyzed. Then, the production trend on rice, livestock, vegetables such as watermelon and leek, and pears was surveyed. Furthermore, by overlooking the features of each enterprise, food production as a regional agriculture was briefly examined. Farm management in Tottori pref. has long been a small scale selfsufficiency property, but has gradually decayed or specialized. Because agricultural workers are continuously decreasing and aging, farming in Tottori pref. should pay attention to the demand of world food while publicizing a process on food production and farmmanagement carefully.
