Rice Planting At the Whole Systems Research Farm

Rice seedlings went into the paddies last week.  What's the only grain crop that's been grown on steep land for centuries without destroying the land or exhausting infertility?  Same crop that feeds more people than any other. Store it for years with no energy input.  Feed to any farm animal.  Currency.  Why aren't we growing rice in Vermont?  Why are repaving smooth highways? Why is Jim Douglas governor?  Why'd we make a hole in the Earth in the gulf?

The city buses mostly used diesel engine and often appear a large black smoke emission. It will cause physical and mental damage to passengers waiting for the bus in the platform, but also make the air pollution in cities. The filters for bus is the most effective method to solve this problem.
On the other hand, the filters for truck usually use the centrifugal type. It must be changed by travelling per 20000 kilometers and maintenance inspection every time.
In order to prevent dust and the impurities of added oil getting into machine's main parts, filters for excavators are necessary and these filters play their own important role for the excavators, too.
