Located in Perak, Root Plus organic lotus root farm has been growing lotus roots without any chemical pesticides or fertilizers for the past 10 years. Lotus roots are grown in muddy soil which can go as deep as 7 feet, sometimes the farmers would have to dive into the water to harvest the roots. It takes a certain special skill to be able to identify where the lotus roots are and how to harvest them as a whole without damaging or breaking the lotus. This skill was passed down from father to son, Mr. Cheong now manages the lotus root farm using sustainable farming with Yuki, his wife and their son.
