|Better Farming Series 21. Wet Paddy or Swamp Rice (FAO, 1977, 40 p.)|
40. There are three ways of threshing:
Either: Put the rice on a hard piece of ground, very clean and without dust, or covered with mats, and beat the heads with a stick;
Or: Beat the rice against a large stone or a tree trunk;
Or: Use a small thresher. You can join with a few other farmers and buy a small thresher together. In this way the work can be done better and more quickly.
