Across China: Japanese man promotes green farming in China

For Kawasaki Hiroto, a 72-year-old Japanese agricultural expert, promoting organic farming in China has become a lifelong pursuit.
"Prepare a grave for me here in China, this is where I'll work till my last breath," said Kawasaki to his Chinese partner after one of his trips back to China.
Kawasaki has been in China for nearly a decade, and his calling is to promote manure composting and recycled farming, both greener farming methods, in the country.
So far, the Japanese green farming enthusiast's mission has won him more than 270,000 followers on Chinese micro-blogging site Weibo. Four years ago, the number was less than 300.
