Italy's Po Valley has been growing rice for centuries.
Their climate is not that much different than SW Holland.
How far north are you Vincent?
located at latitude 43 degrees north
He's growing it at about 49 (and a couple of miles) degrees north
Are you looking for a replacement for the rice in the kitchen? Or just an edible crop that can replace the rice in the planting rotation?
Have you made a decision on one of your crops yet?
I have two main problems: 1, our wet/dry seasons are very different than Fukuoka had, and 2, I'm much further north and some crops are sensitive to day length.
