- I suspect it is because in other parts of the world they perceive they
have a problem they need to correct. And/or they see the need to do a
better job of gardening/farming without disrupting the
environment...Mom Nature. In North America it is still very easy to
get into an argument with someone over whether it is necessary to use
even organic processes when it is so easy to do it the chemical way.
Of course, here we realize (on this group), that the chemical way is
not easier. So often this Fukuoka way is called a 'do nothing'
process. We also know that is not the case.
Even in this group there are those who try to achieve Natural
Farming/Gardening using methods of other gardening/farming gurus...and
say they are using Fukuoka's methodology.
Part of the problem as I see it is that Fukuoka himself has done little
to try to promote his methods in the US. It is even difficult to get
his books here. And yet...many on this list are in North America...and
there are places in which only Fukuoka's work are used. I cannot say
how widespread it is.

> It seems to me that Natural Farming is less practiced in NorthAmerica than in other parts of the world. I'm not sure if this
statement is accurate, but if it is are there any specific pronounced
obstacles, besides cultural ones, that make this form of agriculture
more difficult to practice on this continent than elsewhere?
