Young people of Bali are no longer interested in agriculture

Reviving the agricultural sector of the island will be an uphill battle as local youths’ are losing interest in becoming farmers.

The number of high school graduates enrolled at the University of Agriculture indicates that young people are increasingly reluctant to become farmers or work in the agricultural sector. The University of Agriculture is one of three schools that still receives fewer students than their allocated quota. The government of Bali has launched a scholarship program similar studies to increase the number of students enrolling in institutions related to agriculture. Most farmers on the island are small farmers who do not own the land they cultivate, and they come from low-income and have a low level of education.
