To clarify how risk and information are managed in a farming corporation and the relationship between them and human resources development, we conducted a case study of a large-scale vegetable farm. To understand risk management, we analyzed how information is managed, what tools are used, how each tool is used, and their relations. The farm fully utilized several information and communications technology (ICT) tools and database systems to full capacity to manage information on risks and to achieve strategic management, tactical management, and control. The results show that farm risk management requires the effective management of huge amounts of information. These ICT tools are indispensable to advanced farming management.
