Tractor in backdam smallA farmer backblades his rice land in the Vergenoegen backdams. Rice farming is the leading agricultural activity in Vergenoegen and Vergenoegen’s Two Brothers Corporation is one of the largest rice farmers/millers in the Caribbean. Backblading is the process which takes place after ploughing. A backblade (large metal blade) is attached to the back of the tractor and is pulled across the land to level the upturned soiled caused by ploughing.
