This study was conducted to determine the status of production and marketing of agroforestry products in the Municipality of Rizal, Kalinga from February 10 to April 15, 2022. There were 53 respondents of the study. The descriptive statistics was used. Frequency counts, percent, means, ranks and correlation were used in the analysis and interpretation of data. Most of the respondents are Ilocano, males, married and at age bracket of 51 to 60 years old and had reached elementary level and supporting 5 and above family members. Most agroforestry farmers were cultivating their own sloping land with an area of 1 to 2 ha for more than 10 years and had used their own savings as capital in agroforestry farming. Majority were not affiliated with any organization. Many received financial assistance from government agencies to sustain their farming activities. Many farmers had generated an annual income of about ₱201, 000 and above from agroforestry farming. Generally, farmers' house distance to their farms was 500 meters and below and a distance of 1 km and below from their farms to the market. Farm produced were mostly marketed through word of mouth and usually sold wholesale in local market. However, prices of products mostly fluctuate during peak and lean seasons. From the different agroforestry systems they have adopted, the highest income was generated from their agrocrops. Problems in production, marketing and financial aspects were rated slightly serious. Findings show a significant correlation between annual income and educational attainment, farm size, organizational membership, length of farming experience, distance of house from agroforestry farm and market, and the topography of the farm. Likewise, a significant correlation existed between the seriousness of problems encountered by the respondents to farm size and distance of agroforestry farms to market.
