      escuse my english.
      let´me introduce.
      have some time in read your mails in this group and troat to learn about
      fukoka farming.
      do not consider myself as practicioner of fukoka farming only learning.

      i get one land of 8 hectareas, 4 with forest where with the time expect
      intent, practic the fukoka forming, and 4 the what am working in organic
      way without registration.
      in this last divide it in 4 and in one i practice the introduction of
      clover var bersem, the wheather in Nuevo León México is dry and found that
      this clover need some water to live and in some sections that more exposed
      to air and with less fertility die, maybe if i seed them in more humid time
      could survive in that sections that dray. in other section i seed alfalfa
      and put in them some irigation (with this water the clover could survive
      sens no receive water only of the rain). in this conditions the alfalfa
      survive. Could be better if the land was fertil and in one place that not
      have any fertility not survive even with irrigation.

      both places now are better the land and see that if the land is improved in
      this way and with the time could have succes in seed any clover with few
      water now sens i have access to manure i aplly and introduce broom sorgum
      too to impove the land. in this section i use tractor that is not the way
      of fukoka farming. y only troat to share this experiences.
