Abstract: The potential of wetland rice in Malinau District is important to manage so that the results are optimal. Increasing rice production and productivity in addition to extensification can also be done with intensification programs. The production of lowland rice is inseparable from various factors such as farming technology, the availability of superior seeds, the carrying capacity of irrigation facilities and what is equally important is the way to cultivate the community. A good combination between modern agricultural technology and the noble values of locality must be formulated appropriately so that agricultural progress and natural sustainability can be realized in a balanced and sustainable manner. The purpose of this study is to find out the supporting factors and inhibit the practice of local wisdom, and a model for recommending the practice of local wisdom in cultivating lowland rice that can support regional food security in rice cultivation. This research was conducted with qualitative methods so that researchers were able to fully and comprehensively describe the phenomenon under study. So that in the end it can produce meaningful and useful findings for the development of rice paddy agriculture and food security in the Malinau District area. The conclusions of this study are 1) The internal supporting factor of the practice of local wisdom in cultivating lowland rice is the willingness of the community to continue to preserve the rice farming practices in a friendly manner to the ecosystem by limiting the use of chemical inputs to plants and mechanization of land management.2) External supporting factors of the practice of local wisdom in cultivating lowland rice are government assistance in the form of farm facilities and infrastructure as well as extension support for farmers.3) Inhibiting factors for the practice of local wisdom in cultivating lowland rice also consists of internal factors and external factors, namely the internal inhibiting factor of the practice of local wisdom in cultivating wetland rice is the number of community members who have no longer applied felibal (mutual cooperation) in farming. The external inhibiting factor of the practice of local wisdom in cultivating wetland rice is the lack of agricultural labor in the village of Pulau Sapi which has an effect on the higher value of labor wages and added to the absence of a policy on regulating wages for agricultural labor.4) Related to the sustainability of local wisdom practices in farming in supporting food security can be developed by taking into account the models found in this research.
