      Sorry Mark,

      Thought you said you tried it one year with Andy at Gaia Uni, chisel
      ploughing and not getting clover to establish, etc.

      Well maybe expand a little on the attempts you made.

      Also, Chris Evans seems to think it would be a successful method, he is
      growing Fukuoka-style grains in Nepal.

      ATB,
      Niels
