A Natural Farming System For Sustainable Agriculture In the Tropics Sustainable Agriculture Book - Appendix 6 - A Rice Mill Primer
The rice industry in the Philippines has gone through various challenges and will benefit from EM technologies. Growing, harvesting and processing rice creates high volumes of waste that can be captured and converted back into fertilizer for the next crop. It is important to understand the various grades and different types of mills for rice. The waste from small mills is different than the waste from the larger mills. To keep costs down we want the best value for the money we are spending. We use different grades of rice mill by-products depending on the availability from the mill in our area. We never use the expensive grades for fertilizers. We always try to get the best grades; the higher protein will
pay off in weight gain and genetic maximums.
