        Hello everyone, I wonder if there's anyone on this list experimenting with
        crop successions similar to those pioneered by Masanobu Fukuoka, I'm
        thinking particularly of his rice and winter wheat or barley succession. I'm
        sure there have been many North American, Australasian and European attempts
        to mimic his success using different cereal and bean crops, summer: soya,
        millet, sorghum, lentil, chick pea, amaranth, quinoa, maize, sunflower etc
        and winter: wheat, barley, oats, rye etc over the last 20-25 years. If there
        's no first hand information, has there been a book suggesting such
        combinations and the relative successes or failures? Alternatively, is there
        anyone experimenting with the Marc Bonfils Method of Winter Wheat, who might
        have tried some of these different crops within a clover cover crop? Is
        there someone experimenting with different cover crops, especially those for
        dryland conditions?

        Any information or pointers to further sources would be appreciated.

        To all those inspired by Fukuoka, the man and his work, there is some hope,
        health permitting (he is 93), that he will be in Europe this summer to speak
        at an International climate change conference. I'll provide more details
        closer to the time.

        Jamie
