text: Shoupa cultivated 7 fields this year. Yesterday's field yielded about 310 baskets. (Shoupa needs one basket for 2 days domestic needs). Previously he got 231 from another field. From the 5 fields still to be reaped an average of 150 baskets will be reaped, thus a total of about 1300 baskets. The domestic need will be about 200 baskets. The rest will be stored.
