There is this really excellent video of Fukuoka on youtube, about 1 hour long.



I did a full transcription of the video because I believe Fukuoka's message is important. He makes a lot of his key points explicitly so this is a good concise introduction.

"Fortunately, after 60 years practice
There is no cultivation, no fertilizer, no chemicals, no weeding
I finally can grow any crop with natural farming

Natural farmer says no to science.
All sciences, no.
No thank you, no nothing!
Only scattering clay balls
These are the mixture of science, philosophy, and religion"

Am currently reading the 'Natural Farming' book. Anyone else? I'm trying to get my head around the ideas.It stretches my tiny, western, mind lol. It seems to me that he is coming from a particular world view which is different from, for example, Geoff and Paul, who are more than happy to rearrange nature via terra forming, earthworks, earth sculpure or what you will. Both approaches seem to have their logic. I'm still trying to work out how natural Fukuoka's natural is.
Anyone else have any thoughts and/or experience with implementing or adapting Fukuoka's approach?
