Bali lowers rice production target

The province aims to produce 848,000 tons of husked rice in 2012, around 20,000 tons less than the production figures recorded in 2011.

The amount of cultivated land has decreased and there is experienced extreme and unpredictable weather conditions. All these factors will decrease the production capacity. To secure the level of production, the agency will intensify the cultivation of hybrid varieties of rice on 2,000 hectares of paddy fields, and launch various programs aimed at mitigating the impact of pests and diseases.
