Azolla action with Ballou, Hawa and Hassan harvesting fresh Azolla before they join Margaret to seed Hope Sakuma's newly planted rice paddies where the Azolla will multiply rapidly in water and mud alike covering each paddy reducing weeding time and dying back and providing nitrogen just as the rice seed sets. The Ladies scatter Azolla to the four corners and still waters of each newly planted paddy, helping suppress weeds; providing cover for fish and food for ducks. And as well as a top-notch nitrogen fertilizer for our rice, amazing Azolla helps us fight climate change by off-setting our rice crops' planet-warming emissions of carbon dioxide and nitrogen.
