In Seven Years, Rice Field Area in Badung Rises 197 Hectares

In Seven Years Rice Field Area in Badung Rises 197 HectaresBADUNG County government under the leadership of Regent Gde Agung, aside from being successful to increase the food production, also managed to minimize the land conversion in the past seven years. The Time Series Data show that land conversion in Badung County in 2003 through 2005 ran at the average of 101.33 hectares (ha) per year. This figure actually decreased in 2006 through 2012 with the average of only 17.57 hectares per year. It was successfully undertaken with agricultural intensification through a variety of strategic policy instruments.

It included the inauguration of subak (Subak Balangan and Subak Karang Gadon) and stipulation of subak boundaries with Denpasar Municipality and Tabanan County government. Apparently, such efforts resulted in an increase in the total area of 197 hectares of rice field.

“The land conversion in Badung County so far was utilized to meet the needs of the dynamic development such as for the Civic Center totally needs 46.7 hectares and for the fulfillment of other facilities,” explained the Head of Badung Agriculture, Plantation and Forestry Agency, IGAK Sudaratmaja. It was regarded as one of the efforts to implement the policy in favor of the environmental preservation (pro-environment) and cultural preservation (pro-culture) also constituting the part of five basic principles of the sustainable development in Badung County.
