HAD ENOUGH?

We're talking about the rubbish popularised by chemical companies that rice production is chemical dependent — 10,000 Japanese rice growers have proved otherwise. This book is written by a farmer for farmers — a complete guide to integrated duck and rice farming.

Takao Furuno, a Japanese rice farmer has been producing sustainable, profitable organic rice for the last ten years. Abundantly illustrated, tabled and photographed, this book serves as a text-book for case studies and farmer-evolved natural systems.

Review:

"Farmers have increased their yield by 20 to 50 per cent or more in the first year." Mae-Wan Ho, Open University, Milton Keyes, U.K.

Review:

"By using human imagination and ingenuity, and by co-operating with nature rather than re-engineering it, Takao Furuno has cleared yet another path for a safe, diverse and sustainable agricultural future. So who needs transgenic crops?" Soil and Health, February 2000, pp 36-37

Review:

"A beautiful case history of sustainable agriculture — very finely worked out." Bill Mollison
