      Dear Rajuji,

      Nice to see that your natural farming works for grains..I am able to do it for coconut farm and also for vegetables..and not able to try it for rice since the filed is completely covered with bushy grass, mulching with straw from outside will be very costly..will send some photos soon..

      I had talked to couple of people who had tried rice in natural farming style, and they couldn't make it work. The only reason was the weed and they just took over. In your field, no weeds are seen, just wondering if this happened after a number of years of natural farming and building up of organic matter in the land.

      How was your initial days of rice farming ? Did you also face any difficulty with weeds and if yes, how did you overcome it?



      Regards,
      Nandan

      Natural Farming of Rice.धान की कुदरती खेती.

      धान की खेती के लिए किसान सामान्य तरीके में पानी रोकने के लिए गड्डे बनाते

      हैं फिर उसमे बहुत जुताई कर पानी भर कर कीचड मचाते हैं. फिर उस में पहले से

      तयार धान के रोपे लगाते हैं. इस में अनेक प्रकार की खाद और दवाई डालते हैं. और

      बार बार पानी भरते रहते हैं. ये बहुत महंगी खेती है .फुकुओका फार्मिंग में ये

      सब कुछ करने की कोई जरुरत नहीं है. ठण्ड की पनपती फसल में धान के बीजों को

      मिटटी की गोली में बंद कर खेतों में डाल दिया जाता है. ये अपने मोसम में उग आती

      है. और कुछ करने की जरुरत नहीं है. पिछली फसल के अवशेषों को वापस देने से

      खरपतवार का नियंत्रण हो जाता है और जुताई नहीं करने से बरसात का पानी जैन में

      सोख लिया जाता है जो वास्प बन सिंचाई करता रहता है.

      Natural Farming of Rice:

      In normal traditional cultivation of rice, the farmer makes channels in the

      land to retain water. He tills the land and creates lot of mud. Then he

      transplants young rice plants from a breeding plot to the field. He then

      applies lot of fertilizers and pesticides to these plants. And he repeatedly

      floods the field with water. This kind of farming is a costly affair. In

      Fukuoka farming, there is no need to do all these things. Instead, rice

      grain is enclosed in clay seed balls and scattered in the standing, ready to

      harvest winter crop. These seeds will sprout in the right season with the

      rains. Nothing else needs to be done. The remaining of the last crop i.e

      straw, leaves, roots etc will control weeds and due to no tilling the rain

      water will sink into the earth, which in turn will irrigate the

      crop.(Translation by S.Yugandar)
