Tractor Mudding: Stomping California Rice Straw!


Let’s go tractor mudding! In this tractor video we are stomping rice straw in winter flooded fields. Yes, the 2019 rice harvest is over and we must deal with the remaining rice straw in the field.

Stomping helps incorporate the straw into the mud which in turn helps with the decomposition process. We need a clean field of fertile soil in the spring for our new crop. Do you think we’ll get the tractor stuck in the mud? Find out!
