The authorization of non-agricultural chemicals cannot be obtained easily. Agricultural chemicals or chemical fertilizers can be stained to vegetables by not only water but also wind. So the farmers at Bonseogol village is cultivating even rice without using agricultural chemical, chemical fertilizers or weed-killers.
They are using compost instead of chemical fertilizer and let ducks, which are hatched from the eggs 2 weeks ago, walk around the field to remove harmful insects instead of using insecticide. The excretion from ducks replaces the fertilizer. Consequently rice is cultivated by an environment-oriented method.
