Abstract:

The effects of farm mechanization on the lives of rice farm laborers in Cabanatuan City, Nueva Ecija, were investigated in this descriptive study. Snowball sampling and a survey questionnaire with a consent form were used to collect data. Frequency count, percentages, and weighted mean were utilized to treat and analyze the data. The study's findings found that farm mechanization benefited farmer machine operators in earning more money through faster operations and that they are still regularly employed to work during cropping seasons. Despite this, the respondents see a considerable decrease in the number of rice field laborers.
