Negative climate impacts on rice yield

The unusual weather caused by climate oscillations such as last year's La Niña has generated a reduction in crop productivity of rice in Bali.

The annual rice yield decreased by about 7000 tons, the agriculture sector in Bali having produced 876,000 tons in 2009 and only 869,000 tons in 2010. The necessary demand for Bali is around 40,000 tonnes of rice per month and the island has produced much more per hectare than the national average.
