Re: [fukuoka_farming] Invitation to view Raju's Picasa Web Album - NO-TILL FARMING
- Dear Raju,
I have land in North Spain. The land has not been cultivated for 10 years. Over the past 2 years I have simply cut the grasses and weeds and left it to compost on the fields. I would like to start growing some crops. The weed cover is very thick. Any advice?

The last photo shows drilling seeds into the soil. As I understand
it, this can be a suitable compromise in many conditions even if it
means working the soil a little.
