Abstract: The practical use of forage paddy rice and rice is encouraged because it contributes to the effective utilization of paddy fields and production as well as the use of domestic feed. Research on forage paddy rice and rice has typically focused on the perspective of paddy or livestock farmers. However, to address the issue of the practical use of forage paddy rice and rice, the maintenance of users is necessary, and this demands the existence and cooperation of both paddy and livestock farmers. In this study, an interview survey was conducted to clarify the logic of paddy and livestock farmers who introduce forage paddy rice and rice as well as determine the importance of intermediation companies for paddy rice farmers. We find that paddy farmers plant forage paddy rice and rice to keep paddy fields because they have to deal with adjustments to long-term production and the expansion of areas dedicated to changing crop. Meanwhile, livestock farmers use forage paddy rice to produce coarse feed. Hence, the management strategy of individual farmers is related to the logic of introducing forage paddy rice. Further, we show that intermediation companies aim to keep the high quality of forage paddy rice and rice by monitoring paddy farmers and managing supply and demand. This is important to decrease the gap between paddy and livestock farmers based on both logics. In particular, the monitoring and adjustment of supply and demand play a major role, and thus it is necessary for intermediation companies to improve these functions in the future.
