Indonesia is a developing country so that a lot of people do in agreecultural as a Farmer, They are have lived in villages around all over in Indonesia. The farmer in Indonesia are very differences like in other country, the most of people have not enough wide of lands for plant because compare the population and the lands are not the same, the population of people much more than their lands.
How do the farmer in Indonesia cultivation on their land ? There are many ways to cultivation on their land in traditional way to get ready for rice planting by using animal help like cow and buffalo. Maybe we can see like above describing in Indonesia until rigtht now

Rice is the staple food in Indonesia, and the planting of rice seedlings has been a backbreaking, yet essential, job since ancient times. Farmers must spend long hours stooping over muddy paddies inserting the seedlings one at a time. The job requires long experience and well-honed skills.
Rice is a staple food for a large part of the world's human population, especially in tropical Latin America, and East South and Southeast Asia included in Indonesia, making it the second-most consumed cereal grain. A traditional food plant in Indonesia, Rice has the potential to improve nutrition, boost food security, foster rural development and support sustainable landcare Rice provides more than one fifth of the calories consumed worldwide by humans. In early 2008, some governments and retailers began rationing supplies of the grain due to fears of a global rice shortage.
The traditional method for cultivating rice is flooding the fields whilst, or after, setting the young seedlings.
This simple method requires sound planning and servicing of the water damming and channeling, but reduces the growth of less robust weed and pest plants that have no submerged growth state, and deters vermin. While with rice growing and cultivation the flooding is not mandatory, all other methods of irrigation require higher effort in weed and pest control during growth periods and a different approach for fertilizing the soil.
The farmer planted side by side. The one planted three rows and the other one planted four. Afterward they all looked back over the planted paddy. Since there was a strong wind, a lot of the plants were blown over.
They had to go in and firm them up, or replace them with new plants. The seedlings that my father and the others had planted were all standing, but the ones my brother and I planted needed a lot of fixing.

Rice cultivation is well-suited to countries and regions with low labor costs and high rainfall, as it is very labor-intensive to cultivate and requires plenty of water for cultivation.

On the other hand, mechanized cultivation is extremely oil-intensive, more than other food products with the exception of beef and dairy products. Rice can be grown practically anywhere, even on a steep hill or mountain. Although its species are native to South Asia and certain parts of Africa, centuries of trade and exportation have made it common place in many cultures.
