The provincial government of Bali is studying plans to provide financial subsidies to farmers in the form of reduced tax rates. Being considered is a scheme in which farmers who retain the agricultural use of rice fields and other farming lands would receive tax relief.

As reported by Beritabali.com, Governor Made Mangku Pastika recently told a group of tourism professionals that how subsidies for farmers would be applied was still being discussed. In addition to tax relief, said Pastika, the province is also looking at additional subsidies for fertilizers and seeds.

“Providing they plant rice, the tax will be paid by the government. The taxes are still going to be paid, but the farmers won’t pay. it will be paid for them. Later (we’ll also pay) for fertilizer, seeds,” explained the governor.

The governor said that subsidies for farmers would be taken from the island’s tourism income, in order to repay the contribution made by agriculture to the tourism industry. Pastika said tourism’s debt to agriculture is even greater now following the recognition of Bali’s terraced rice fields (subak) as part of the world’s cultural heritage by UNESCO.
