Abstract

Purpose: Subak is an organization owned by the farming community in Bali which specifically regulates traditional rice field management. Subak Sembung is one of the Subak organizations that is engaged in the production to date. The novelty of this research as well as the purpose of the research is to observe the independence of urban farmers from various sides. The purpose of this research is to increase the independence of farmers in adapting to urban situations.

 

Research Method: Sixty-six members of Subak Sembung participated as study participants. Data were collected by observation and interview sessions. The qualitative analysis was employed to address the first, second, and third aims of the study.

 

Findings: Results revealed that the majority of the farmers had a high level of independence in the aspect of cultivation tool preparation, crop production, capital, capital provider, and type of cultivated commodity. However, lack of independence was identified in the aspect of post-harvest handling, management, selfdevelopment, collaborating to provide agricultural services, and technology adoption.

 

Originality/ Value: We suggest delivering training, workshops, and technology adoption to improve the level of independence of farmers in adapting to urban agriculture
