Rice is an important global crop, with half of the world’s population dependant on it. In Bali, rice farming traditionally relies on heritage rice. Traditional farming practices use little – if any – fertiliser, pesticides or agro-chemicals. Instead, pest and weed control is carried out through manual removal of weeds and by waterlogging the soil to ensure pest organisms cannot survive. This method tends to result in good quality soil that allows agriculture to be sustainable in the long-term. However, the majority of farmers do not carry out any soil analysis on their land and know little about the soil organisms in their paddies.
