Does anyone have any information on growing rice in the Piedmont
region of North Carolina? It is being grown in Masachusetts.

Cultural methods
Soil requirements
Rice varieties appropriate for this region
Seed sources
Irrigation needs (I think the upland varieties are drought resistant)

What kind of huller/thresher is needed? Can the crop be properly harvested with
a scythe, bundled and bound for drying?

Are there appropriate technology for developing nations designs/plans for home shop built thresher/huller machines?

Thanks for any feedback.

Lawrence
