Role of women in agriculture
Dr. Basavaraj Patil and Dr. V Suresh Babus
Today, there is a growing realization and commitment of the global community to achieve more sustainable and broad-based agricultural growth by addressing gender related issues in agriculture through national, regional and global initiatives and partnerships. There is need for reorientation of the agricultural research agenda to overcome the existing gaps and to face the emerging challenges of sustainable development and livelihood of resource poor smallholders, especially women farmers. We are quite aware of the problems which women face at home and at farm. However, at this juncture, we require in-depth analysis of the problems followed by the appropriate actions for their solutions. Suitable technologies have to be delivered to the farm women for raising farm productivity and empowerment. Other practical steps should also be taken-up to help and support farm women. This paper mainly emphasize on the role of women in different sectors of agriculture along with drudgery activities carried out by women in agricultural activities.
