The rate of world population growth is very extreme, while the rate of food supply has also dropped very sharply. The rate decline in food supply is compounded by a decline in farmlands. Cimahi is a small town in West Java experienced the something. Farmlands has changed its function into housing complexes, offices, malls, buildings causing a decline in farmlands. The remaining area of the rice field is only 152 hectares left which is a big problem for Cimahi. Gaps occur due to an explosion in population and a decrease in farmlands. Urban Rice Farming (URF) is a system of rice farming that is effective, efficient, innovative, unique, productive and is a solution. URF is a system of farming rice in poly bags with high productivity that can reach more than five times that of conventional rice fields. Other benefits are economic, cultural, social and educational benefits.
