Cadu Farm 03 Ricefields

 

Cadu Farm 03 Ricefields.
Fig. 01a. Cadu Farm 03 Ricefields, Northeasthern border of Zone g (see Fig. 02). The boundary of the ricefields is demarcated by the cement posts and barbed wire. The adjacent ricefields outside of Cadu Farm 03 are about the same level as, or only at slight higher level than the ricefields in Cadu Farm 03.  In contrast, the background rolling hill is much higher than the rice field plots in Farm 03.

Cadu Farm 03 is estimated roughly to have an area between 200-500 SQM (a more precise estimate of the area will be provided after we have a more detailed study of the Cadu Farms). The small rice fields area is located in the Southeastern portion of Farm 03, marked as Zone g in Fig. 02.

The lateral view shown below the main (top view) image of Cadu Farm 03 indicates than Zone g is at a much lower level than any portion of Farm 03.

While the ricefields in Zone g comprise only a small portion of Farm 03, the Zone g area (Fig. 02) may play significant role in the conversion of the existing Cadu Farms into a more sustainable and biodiverse EcoCulture system.  

The lateral view shown below the main (top view) image of Cadu Farm 03 (Fig. 02) indicates that the ricefields in Farm 03 is much lower than any other portion of the farm. In fact, it is much lower than any other area of the three (3) Eugenio-Magano Cadu Farms (Firg. 03).
