Balinese rice terraces

My understanding is that farmers here fought hard against top-down reform during the Green Revolution. Since then, a good deal of effort has gone into studying this particular flavor of agriculture. My understanding is that these studies found the water temples controlling the irrigation use an amazingly efficient system for distribution. I wish I spent more time on this.
