Using ducks to help grow rice

ducks being used to help with growing rice

Farmers have been using ducks in Asia to help grow rice for centuries.


Once the rice gets to 25 days old they start releasing ducks in small groups of 10 or 20 depending on the size of the field.


Using this method avoids costly pesticides and fertilizers and you get the duck eggs and meat as a bonus. Maybe this process could be modified to work for cranberries or some other kind of bog crop?
