Natural Farming with Masanobu Fukuoka

Full-length documentary following the legendary Masanobu Fukuoka on a visit to India.
Masanobu Fukuoka is a farmer/philosopher who lives on the Island of Shikoku, in southern Japan. His farming technique requires no machines, no chemicals and very little weeding. He does not plow the soil or use prepared compost and yet the condition of the soil in his orchards and fields improve each year. His method creates no pollution and does not require fossil fuels. His method requires less labor than any other, yet the yields in his orchard and fields compare favorably with the most productive Japanese farms which use all the technical know-how of modern science.

Larry Korn - o půdě

Larry Korn spent three years with Masanobu fukuoka and did the translation for the excellent book "One Straw Revolution". He is now a permaculture instructor in Ashland, Oregon.

Larry gives a bit of his background especially as it reflect on his time with Fukuoka. He explains how he studied soil and plant nutrition in college. I think the key point in this video is where he talks about in college how bad plowing is. His college professor says "we just don't know how to grow food any other way". Years pass and he meets Fukuoka. Who has far superior soil and is growing food without plowing.

Larry explains the sustainability of living there. They produced 95% of their own food from an edible food forest.

Semínkové míčky

Natural Farmer Masanobu Fukuoka conducts a workshop for making seed balls at his natural farm and forest in Japan.

Here's how it works: The seed is encased in dry compost powder (for water holding) and clay powder (binder) using water as an accretion facilitator (makes it sticky) to make a pellet core. It's tumbled with alternating layers of water and powder to build up layers (like a jawbreaker), and covered with lime as a protective "certified organic substance".
