Abstract

A functional shift on the use of farming area nowadays has affected the farming culture in Bali. Due to globalization, some traditions regarding the farming are rarely performed. The traditions include rituals that farmers do for certain purposes. This study aims to (1) preserve the farming tradition and culture; (2) preserve particular Balinese registers relating to the farming rituals. The data were collected in the second subak (a terraced farming area), Pasedehan Yeh Lauh, Peguyangan Kangin Village, South Denpasar Sub-District. The data collections were undergone through observations, interviews, and some literatures. From the data, it has been found that many Balinese registers regarding the farming rituals are no longer used. This happens due to the lack of farming areas and the globalization impact in which practicality is prioritized. In the farming rituals, some registers that are not popular include kober, ‘flag’, ngeed ‘a flag made of bamboo’, jangu ’one kind of tubers’, kakul ’snail’ ngingu’serve’, etc. Apparently, Balinese registers can be preserved by the revitalization of farming rituals, so that they are not extinct due to the modernization.
