4. Little fertiliser is added apart from the ash, so the nutrient levels drop quickly leading to the cultivators abandoning the plot and finding a new one after 7-10 years.

5.Labour intensive little use of machines (some have chain saws).  Crops tend to be planted using digging sticks.
6.  Crops planting between remaining tree trunks which decompose slowly adding extra nutrients into the soil.
