The rice farmed by the duck-using-agricultural method

duck-using-agriculturalUse ducks instead of using the agricultural chemicals and the chemical fertilizers
The method is like this: Just let the ducks go around to the grain field in the morning and gather them in the evening.  Breeding ducks is good for rice farming because ducks eat the weeds and bugs.  They also protect the rice plants from the disease of falling down and blight. The wastes of the ducks can be used as a fertilizer for rice plants.

How to use the ducks for farming
1.The recommendable kind of the duck is the mixed breed of wild duck in small size.  Purchase ducks in accordance with the schedule of rice-planting.  And let them stay in the rice fields after 20 or 30 days of rice-planting.
2.The recommendable number of the ducks is one duck per 10 pyeong of rice-field.  Thus, for the rice field of 900 pyeong, a flock of 90 ducks are most effective.
3.When the heads of the grain come out, the leaves grow flourished.  Then the weeds cannot grow anymore.  And it is the high time to take the ducks out of the rice fields.

The principle of the duck-using-agricultural method
-The ducks can be a substitute for weeding by eating the young weeds.
- The ducks prevent rice plants from the damages by blight and harmful insect because they eat the bugs such as Shilo Suppressalis and Pearl-Moth, etc.
- You can save one third of chemical fertilizer of usual amount by using the wastes of ducks.
- The ducks also plow the ground and make the muddy water by turning over the soil of the rice field with their beaks, web-feet and bodies.

The rice farmed by the pond snail-using-agricultural method

The food is farmed by the organic way.   
Recently, it is hardly seen the pond snails in the rice fields of the rural area.  However, the pond snails and mudfish had been living in countryside across the nation about ten years ago.  Back then, the agriculture chemical and the chemical fertilizer were not commonly used.  Even though we can recently produce the great amount of rice by the help of those chemical products, the quality of rice for health went down.  As we adopted to farm the rice by using the big pond snails, the white cranes fly back our village to eat the snails.

How to use the big pond snails
The big pond snails stay mostly in water.  Although they usually like the young plants, they can eat anything because they are polyphagia.  In order to remove the weeds by the ponds snails, you should put them in the rice fields when the weeds are still young.  And you should be careful for the right time to put the pond snails in the rice fields.  If you put them in the rice field right after rice-planting the pond snails may eat the plants out of hunger because the rice sprouts doesn't take the roots yet.
