If you are like us, on a quest for knowledge about sustainable design systems... 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.

'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.

'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?' from Soil and Health, February 2000, pp 36-37

Recommended by Bill Mollison: 'A beautiful case history of sustainable agriculture - very finely worked out.'
