New video about Masanobu Fukuoka
Date: Thu, 7 Apr 2011 11:52:01 -0600

Larry Korn (http://www.larrykorn.net) gives an overview of the works
of the spectacular Masanobu Fukuoka, author of The One Straw
Revolution (http://onestrawrevolution.net)

Larry talks about how Masanobu Fukuoka had three properties:  the
house in town, the rice field, and the citrus orchard on the hill.

The spectacular thing about the rice fields is that he had rice
production typically greater than his neighbors, without using the
equipment or chemicals that his neighbors use.   And, on top of that,
he pulls a crop of barley off of the same land in addition to the
massive rice crop.  As another bonus, Masanobu Fukuoka's soil gets
richer and richer every year.

Up on the hillside, Masanobu Fukuoka plants a variety of things
between the trees.  He has a thick, lush jungle of herbacious things
like vegetables growing between the trees.   Tangerines, asian
grapefruit, daikon radish, mustard, acacia trees, buckwheat, mandarin
oranges, etc.
