So, this is the slope that connects the terrace (above, right) with the actual field.
In the second pic you can see my experimental rice. Needs a bit of N, because it's mulched in compost instead of maní (the equivalent of Fukuoka's clover), but hey, no weeds!
At any rate, it's a fairly long-grained rice, like bhasmati or jasmine, without the amazing fragrance. I must say, though, that when you are in the paddy, even before the flowers have come out, there is this aroma in the air, like brown rice syrup...
