It is said to be the most abundant type of agriculture globally, commonly practiced in humid, tropical regions of the world. While intensive subsistence agriculture is highly dependent on animal power and is highly labor-intensive, how best can it be adapted with technology in mind?

I think of homesteads as a basic example of subsistence agriculture. I'm not sure that animal power matters anymore since we've learned to cope with machines and other tools. Maybe that counts as a technological adaptation. I'm not sure.

I think that more and more farmers are moving away from traditional subsistence farming and adopting intensive subsistence farming by applying modern cultivation techniques like the use of commercially produced fertilizer. Technology is already in use, say, by the introduction of effective water management systems. It will get better with time!
