Abstract

Over 800 000 hectares of agricultural land in Malaysia are either idle i.e. not worked for more than three years, or under utilised. In five districts in Negeri Sembilan the rate of agricultural decline is the worst in the country, the most affected crops being rice and rubber. The article discusses reasons for this large amount of "idle land', in particular the matrilineal kinship organisation known as Adat Perpaith, and its rules and regulations governing transmission and transfer of land. -M.Amos
