Abstract

Sustainable agricultural paddy’s fields determine food security and important to social equity, social prosperity, economic development, and environmental services. The main purpose of this research was to elaborate some perspectives on sustainability of irrigated upland rice cultivation in Bengkulu. The study was done in Lebong Regency, Bengkulu Province from January to April 2020. A scalable rapid appraisal multidimensional scaling (MDS) was used to examine sustainable status following to five dimensions of ecological, economical, socio-cultural, technological and institutional viewpoints consisting of 30 attributes. Accuracy of MDS analysis was analysed with goodness of fit and Monte Carlo analysis while sensitive attributes was fitted with root mean square leverage analysis. Agricultural paddy’s fields in upland Bengkulu moderately sustain with scale of 51.41. Land use change perception determined socio-culture dimensions to put agriculture paddy’s field on less sustain at the scale of 47.85. A low financial support and government facilities put institutional and policies dimension on 45.40, the level of less sustain for cultivated rice field sustainability. Strengthening sustainability of cultivation upland paddy’s field in Bengkulu initially should be supported by government budgeting and facility, and endorsement sustainable agricultural land policies.
