- Farming is still the most important and most common source of living in the world. With the advancement of technology, farming becomes easier and modernized but has affected many people who depend on agriculture. The aim of the study is to find out the impact of the introduction of the mechanized reaper on the livelihood of farm workers in selected barangays of Santiago City. The researchers made use of the descriptive phenomenological qualitative design using the interview and observation as data gathering tools. Farm workers who were not landowners from different select barangays were chosen as participants. Results showed that technological innovations like the mechanized reaper has caused unemployment and migration among the participants thus leading to engagement on alternative livelihood endeavors like poultry and livestock production. The researchers recommended that a government agenda from the Department of Agriculture be created to generate sustainable opportunities to improve the economic wellbeing of the farm workers.
