I'm not sure if this has already been posted but I did a search on permies and nothing came up so...

Although the narrator is a bit 'stiff', this is a great 25-ish minute video showing Fukuoka's farming methods. It sums up the main points of the "One Straw Revolution" book, in visual form. I'm glad to finally see it as it was, and not just how I pictured it in my head. The juxtaposition of him farming right next to the chemical farmers is pretty interesting to see also.

You're welcome. I'm glad to be able to share this video. I found the book a bit mystifying at times and this cleared a lot up for me. I'm sure it will for others as well.
 
Do the next thing next. That’s a pretty good rule. Read the tiny ad, that’s a pretty good rule, too.
