This aimed at analyzing the level of productivity of rice produced by organic rice farmers and non-organic rice farmers in Subak farmer group in Peguyangan Village, Denpasar. From these results, an efficient and effective alternative solution was further formulated by a farmer group to determine the decision on growing organic or non-organic rice. This research was prompted by the concepts of food security, theory of productivity and costs. The research used primary data sourced from subak farmer groups in Peguyangan Village, Denpasar and from documents that existed in the farmer group. The analysis results showed that the difference in the level of significance of organic rice was 0.740 while the non-organic rice had a significant level of 0.581. This result means that the level of productivity produced for organic rice is greater than that of non-organic rice. Based on these results, it is recommended that subak farmer groups in Peguyangan Village, Denpasar plant organic rice because its significance level is greater than that of non-organic rice but also not have to completely ignore growing non-organic rice to stabilize the food needs of Balinese people.
