Abstract

Plantation agriculture remains an important sector of the Malaysian economy. However, it faces problems of labour supply especially from the local population, which led to the recruitment of foreign labourers. This study, therefore, attemps to assess the degree of local labour participation in the plantation sector based on a case study of landowners who participated in SALCRA's plantation at Lemanak and Batu Kaya Estate in the Sri Aman Division, Sarawak. The specific objectives are to determine participants' demographic characteristics, and to examine how agro-economic diversifications and various forms of non-farm employment influence the local labour supply in the two estates.
