Dry Season too short and wet

Due to the La Nina the dry season was short and too wet to plant our legume crop so we let the field fallow for the last remainding months before the rice.
This La Nina is the most survive on record since 1917/18

To help control the Golden snail that devastated our rice last year we introduced large ducks into the field during the cultivation period. They also eat weeds and other insects aswell of tilling the soil, this is known as “Bird Tillage”
