It is necessary to ensure weeding from the early stages of cultivation. It must also be a way that does not depend on agricultural chemicals, such as work with their hands.
When rice is small, if a huge outbreak of apple snails occurs, rice will be damaged.On the other hand, when the rice grows bigger, apple snails eat weeds.It is necessary to control the depth of water in order to suppress the damage of apple snails and make good use of them .
