Do nothing farming

Have you ever heard of organic farming? Of course! Ok. Then have you ever heard of natural farming? What is natural farming? What is the difference between organic and natural farming?

The word of natural farming started to use by Masanobu Fukuoka. After studying and working as a microbiologist and agricultural scientist, he started natural farming in 1938. The feature of his farming is no tilling, no pulling out weeds, no pesticides, and no fertilizer. Simply put “do nothing” farming.

You can choose English subtitles.

When I started to study this eccentric farming, I getting realize this is the most scientific, economic, and sustainable farming. I began to apply this method in my garden and planted rye seeds in October, last year. Today I harvest and dry them. As master Fukuoka said, we can harvest without doing anything.

Do nothing might be the key to sustainability.

          Using green manure is a good alternative to chemical fertilizer.
          It’s cheaper and healthier than conventional ways.
