Intensive agriculture, particularly in the uplands, has brought about soil erosion and/or land degradation, thus, threatening sustainability or improvement of production. Despite the presence of soil conserving technologies and environment-friendly techniques, there are factors constraining their widespread adoption such as additional labor requirements which are competitively pulled by diversifying sources of income and emerging non-farm income opportunities within or in nearby areas.
