- Jul 19, 2006escuse my english.
have some time in read your mails in this group and troat to learn about
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.
