Larry Korn ( gives and overview of the works of the spectacular Masanobu Fukuoka, author of The One Straw Revolution (

Larry talks about how Masanobu Fukuoka had three properties: the house in town, the rice field, and the citrus orchard on the hill.

The spectacular thing about the rice fields is that he had rice production typically greater than his neighbors, without using the equipment or chemicals that his neighbors use. And, on top of that, he pulls a crop of barley off of the same land in addition to the massive rice crop. As another bonus, Masanobu Fukuoka's soil gets richer and richer every year.

Up on the hillside, Masanobu Fukuoka plants a variety of things between the trees. He has a thick, lush jungle of herbacious things like vegetables growing between the trees. Tangerines, asian grapefruit, daikon raddish, mustard, acacia trees, buckwheat, mandarin oranges, etc.
