The meaurement of farmer’s commitment indicators are done by likert scale. The result indicated that farmers in Peri-urban area of Yogyakarta have low commitment in maintaining wetted land ownership status.  Low level of farmer’s commitment are reflected from the low commitment to prevent the desire to sell the wetted land,  to rent out the wetted land for non-agricultural use and to change the wetted land for non-agricultural use.
