There are about 200.000 ha of productive rice field converted to non-productive or commercial area every year” Sofyan Jalil, Minister of Agrarian Affairs and Spatial Planning / National Land Agency. #Antara
Additional info: in Bali some village has local regulation about this policy but in certain areas only and not include Ubud which is (was) famous for its rice field area. 🙁
