This study is a sociological change effort aimed at achieving zero hunger through sustainable agricultural intervention in mode of farming, instrumentation and seedlings. Sample population was from south-east Nigeria.  Findings revealed that as subsistent farming was the mainstay of local communities, there was resistance and an apparent unwillingness to part with arable land, gratis. Furthermore, there was resistance to change from traditional methods of farming to modern mechanized approaches. To effect an appreciable success in the drive to zero hunger, sustainable efforts are required to break the chain of resistance among local farmers.

Key words:Sociological, sustainable agricultural intervention, Nigeria, subsistent farming, change management.
