In recent years, insecticides have proven useful, and have become the prevailing method of killing bugs.
After weeding in the seventh month, Nung farmers have two months off, in which they usually harvest anise or prepare fields for the next harvest.
This is usually the busiest time of year and involves basket weaving for firewood gathering and transportation.
From the end of August to October of the lunar month, it is time to harvest the rice.
The Nung use iron sickles to cut rice, and then tie them into bundles measuring 40cm around.
According to custom, every member of villager’s field.
Everyone harvests the field together.
During harvesting, it is common to see a long row of people harvesting a field in the afternoon when the plants are dry.
At dusk, all the bundles of rice are collected and arranged into a circular stack, 2-3 meter diameter.
The stack lies in the open air for three days and nights, after which threshing begins early in the morning and continues until late at night.
The Nung have four threshing methods :
1. Nhuot khau ㅡ the simplest method. A bamboo mat covers the stack of rice bundles, and a long pole is stretched over it, serving as a fulcrum.
People hold the pole with their hands and trample the bundles with their feet.
2. phat long ㅡ a large boat – like structure, called a long, about two meters long and 50 centimeters wide, is built out of long boards.
