Precise understanding of hadronic interactions at very high energy is essentially important for observations of ultra high energy cosmic rays by extensive air showers. The LHCf experiment provides new data for very forward particle productions produced by LHC 7 TeV and 0.9 TeV p-p collisions. These data relevant toair showers development will improve current uncertainty in observation of ultra high energy cosmic rays. Recent LHCf data and future prospects are over-viewed.
