No.1 Program is the most practical and feasible and RMB￥60000 has been raised. I have to get rid of the different opinions of my family and I plan to do the test in Hainan or Guangdong in the second half of 2003 in the suburbs of small towns or villages close to towns. Due to the limit of capital, most of the work will be done manually or by simple machines. Biogas pools may not be built and big vats or ground pits may be used for anaerobic fermentation. I will try to make an artificial land area of 100-200 m2 within 2 years. The main crops will be wheat (or any cereal crops suitable to the place), vegetables, and melons. All the farm products will be my foods so that the intermediate step of feeding the animals will be eliminated. I must go to hospitals to have medical checkups regularly in order to evaluate the edibility of the crops grown on artificial soil. In addition, I will actively get contacts with the local government and the local people to let them know what I am doing so as to at least guarantee my personal safety. I expect to have some small successes in two years with the cost controlled within RMB￥ 60000.
In fact the program has not been carried out because of difficulties too much.
