(12/8/2013)

The Bali Bureau of Statistics (BPS-Bali) have release their 2013 census for agriculture revealing some startling results.

In the census, undertake once every 10 years, it was revealed that the number of agricultural households decreased by 84,161 from the last census.

Households depending on agricultural enterprises in Bali now stand at 408,233, down from the 492,394 households recorded in 2003

The head of BPS-Bali, Gede Suarsa said the biggest decline occurred among agriculturalists working with livestock suffering a decline of 78,913.

The smallest decline was 3,851 in the sub-sector for fish farming.

Suarsa said the large decline in livestock raising happened because of the high prices currently being paid for farm animals and the change in the use of farmlands to other purposes that have caused many to sell their land holdings.

The 2013 agricultural census represents the 6th time the survey was undertaken by BPS-Bali since 1963.

The latest Bali survey shows 315,747 families still involved in livestock breeding, 238,484 families in cash crop agriculture, and 220,893 families undertaking plantation agriculture.

Professor I Wayan Windia of the Bali’s Udayana University blames the rapid decline in Bali’s agricultural sector on the change in land usage and the fact that working is farming was no longer considered profitable.

Professor Windia estimates 1,000 hectares of farming land is lost each year to other pursuits in Bali.
