    What do you think?

    Shifting agriculture with crop rotation sure sounds good, but isn't it really a way of the government to put another uneccesary layer of control over people?

    I mean think of it! The idea of first cultivate an area which takes time and then NOT use it again for a year? Do we have too much food or what!?!

    Slash and burn is efficient, fast and have worked since the first plow. Why should we change that? What proof is there for the shifting agriculture would prove better in the future?!?

    Say NO.
