I know you have read a lot about farming especially in @Jher0122 article that Blood and sweat for a Golden Grain if you want to read just click it. If anyone else has written about farmers, I'm sorry I haven't read it yet.
But, what I will write now is how to turn the "palay" into rice?
The three differents of rice here in the philippines
"palay" means rice plant
"bigas" means raw rice
"kanin" means you can eat it.
For us, our main livelihood is really planting rice in the paddy field. It's not all easy because first you have to plow your farm and need a hentractor so you can plant"rice". when your crop grows you need fertilizer and pesticide for the insects that destroy the rice plant and ofcourse when someone dies in the rice plant you also need to plant it again. it hurts in the back and you need to wait a few months before you harvest the rice plant, We have 2 rice plants a year.
When this is how the rice plant needs to be harvested.
How to harvest the rice plant?
"garab" visayan word. That is what is used when harvesting the rice plant, you need to be careful when using it because it is sharp and you can be injured if you do not know how to use a "garab".
And when the rice plant that is being harvested falls down due to strong winds or floods you need to be even more careful because anytime you can also be injured immediately.
"tambon" visayan word or hay. Tambon is when you have finished harvesting the riceplant you need to combine the rice together and put it on a rope that you can tie and lift on your head to the "tinumpi".
"Tinumpi" visayan word. That's where you put all your hay to get together and it's easy for people who use a treser to get rid of the straw in the rice plant.
"Treser" Visayan word. Treser is a tool used to remove straw from the paddy and it takes four or six people to lift it to the middle of the paddy to treser. It comes with a blower. That is after the treser, there is air coming out because all the rice has to be cleaned before putting it in the sack. And when the rice is clean, it can be sold, get something that can be replanted and made into raw rice.
This is the main topic, how to make plant rice the raw rice?
1st you need to first expose it to hot weather.you have to watch when there are chickens or not, and you always come back every 20mins to dig so that even under the rice plant you have planted will be dry and well exposed. you also need to watch in the afternoon because it might rain and also wet that rice plant , when wetyou will expose it again the next morning.
When everything is dry you can take it to "kuno" kuno is a visayan word. Means turning rice plant into raw rice. How do you get to "kuno"? If you can lift a sack of rice you can carry it to the road because the "kuno" they are just waiting on the road to turning raw rice your rice plant. and when you have a lot of rice, you can take it on the carabao cart to the road. Cart of the carabao and the carabao is a very big help to all the farmer because when your house is far from the road they are there ready to help you even if it rains or storms.
When your plant rice is raw rice, you can sell it or turn it into "kanin" . The rice plant can be sold but it is cheap, but when it becomes raw rice, a kilo of raw rice is more expensive than the rice plant.
I experienced all this before when I was still living in our house, almost everything I did and riding on the carabao. So far, it is not so difficult because there are tools that are being made to harvest rice and it is also easy to turn a rice plant into raw rice.
I'm having a hard time thinking of my topic today, and the reason also why I'm writing this is because I need to convert my earnings into a fiat to buy rice at home.
Last night my father told me that they need raw rice, because they couldn't plant a rice plant outside the house due to the frequency of rain at home so they ran out of raw rice, and because I have earnings here in readcash I gave it to buy their groceries as well.
Even if I reduce my savings in my bitcoin.com wallet, I'm happy that I helped my father and my brother. I'll just take it back and work harder, grind and grind more here the next day.
