text: Agriculture in Chen, Sheangha, Longwa, Angphang, Yonghung, Nia-niu, Dakphang: They don't grow much rice, only a little on the old fields. They mostly grow millet and taro and job's tears (ni-wong). They don't sow the rice like at Wakching, but make small holes and put in the seeds (of rice, millet, job's tears). They also grow a creeper with fruits of the size of nuts and tasting like taro.
