      Dear Raju,

      I am amazed at how robust your wheat looks! I have a question, did you use
      Fukuoka's seed ball technique, or simply broadcasting by hand? How exactly
      did you plant the wheat/mathy? You have a beautiful crop! Congratulations
      from Ohio! Whatever you did, I am going to imitate, although I doubt I can
      raise Mathy. I'll have to substitute a local legume for the Mathy.

      Frank

        Dear friend,
        Thank you very much for appreciation. We are direct broadcasting by hand
        wheat+ mathy in the mulch of rice straw. I found one legume is must with
        wheat. Fukuoka was using white clover.
        Thanks

        बधाई के लिए धन्यवाद हम गहूं के बीजों को सीधे मेथी के साथ मिला कर हाथों से
        छिड़कते हैं और उसे पुआल से ढँक देते हैं. और सिंचाई करते रहते हैं.

            We are making seed balls for rice in winter and broadcast in the growing
            crop of wheat.
            हम रबी में धान के बीजों को मिटटी की गोली में बंद कर गहूं में ही डाल देते
            हैं.

              Hello,
              my name is Beny.  I am a small natural farmer in France.  In case you are willing to start a natural farm in a temperate-cold climate, I would be very happy to tell you how to proceed as far as method & practice are concerned.  Please, read my blog:
              http://marssfarm.centerblog.net
              I would be pleased to co-operate with your project.  Fukuoka’s is the simplest method of all.  The main job is to attune our mind to it.
              I hope you will answer my message.
              Beny
