actually, IN rice paddies. There is still the practice of using "Night soil" in the very rural areas" Im not sure they still use human dung, but they do save the hoofed animal manures in big compost piles.
In US, we just flood and use chemical fertilizers .
No big meaty breakfass this AM, I have one more gas well line to inspect and then Im outta here. Ill eat a Mickee D's on the drive home. (I carry a 45 so Im really not worried about bears--Weve killed off most all of the fierce ones that used to attack people)- BUT, just in case, Im gonna buy me a couple of SNICKERS bars at a store just to use as bait in case any of these bears didnt get the memo). I should be back home in LAncaster by mid afternoon .
