By using good-quality seeds from the southern districts of Sierra Leone, 6 kg of rice are typically producing 55-60 bushels of rice, a harvest that is being celebrated in the area as farmers resume their agricultural activities after the war.
However, upland rice farming is environmentally-destructive, usually involving deforestation of trees, and the yields are not as great as those obtained in the swamps with SRI techniques.
Rice planted during the rainy season is now being rotated in with vegetables such as sweet potatoes, potatoes, okra and cucumber during the dry season to add more variety to the local diet, and to improve nitrate entrance into the soil since rice planting alone tends to deplete the soil of nitrates.

 Rice-
The convention has developed that the rice byproducts are ceded to the miller in lieu of a cash milling fee, a practice that inevitably results in the concentration of rice bran and broken rice in the hands of the rice miller, and poorer availability to the farmers who grew the rice.
A single rice crop is grown in both villages; the greater planted area and higher rice yields in the irrigated area (2.6 MT/ha cf 2.25) increase the amount of paddy and, subsequently rice bran in the village.
The purchasing of concentrate to mix with broken rice and rice bran is the normal current practice for rice miller/pig raisers in the region.

Rice represents the "kokoro," the heart and soul of Japan's culture, not only the basic source of food but also the historical nucleus of the traditional village, the system of water sharing from the mountains to sea, and the spirit of cooperation and harmony in the Japanese people.
In the village circle with almost all of the men, women, and children present, we see a symbol of the traditional Japanese village and its group process of facing problems and decision making.
Further, with the decline of rice farming in Japan, the continuation of rice as a cultural and spiritual symbol of Japan must give away to the new values of a changing Japan.
