Links between household agricultural production and nutrition. Summary of research 1. Location: Nigeria, Uganda, Ethiopia, Zambia, Mozambique, Tanzania and Nepal What we know: It is generally accepted that agricultural development will improve household food and nutrition security but direct evidence of pathways is lacking. What this article adds: A special issue of The Journal of Development. To increase agricultural productivity, land, labor, fertilizer, agricultural advice, and diversification within agriculture are the most important factors. As commonly found in the literature, the results indicate the inverse-land size productivity relationship.

About Women in Agriculture Successful Farming’s Women in Ag section is designed to connect and further farm women in all dimensions of farm and family life. This section includes posts from our Women in Ag bloggers. Moreover, the seasonal patterns of reported hired-in farm labor and sold agricultural labor track very closely over the cropping cycle. Table 1 presents summary statistics of the data pooled over the eleven waves of WISE. The sample consists of 4, farm households and o household-wave observations.

Characteristics of Women Farm Operators and Their Farms. by Robert A. Hoppe and Penni Korb. The share of U.S. farms operated by women nearly tripled over the past three decades. Using Census of Agriculture data from through , this report provides detailed information about women farmers and the types of farms they operate. Family farms play a dominant role in U.S. agriculture. In , these farms accounted for 99 percent of U.S. farms and 89 percent of production. On family farms, the principal operators and their relatives (by blood or marriage) own more than half of the business’s assets—in short, a family owns and operates the farm.

Farm size, household size and composition, and women's contribution to agricultural production: Evidence from Zaire. The Journal of Development Studies: Vol Cited by: Starting from propositions raised in former farmer research with respect to household size and composition and farm size in land abundant tropical agriculture, the study reported in this article is in particular concerned with women's contribution to agricultural production in Zaire.

Looking critically at the labour market, the increase in the proportion of women participating in paid work that began. Closed questions aim at classifying households and farms by asking for e.g., age, gender (categorical data), income, farm size (ranked data), number of household members, production Cited by: 7.

Women play a major role in agriculture, the world over. About 70% of the agricultural workers, 80% of food producers and 15% of those who process basic food, are women and they also undertake The Census of Agriculture is a complete count of U.S.

The Census of Agriculture, taken only once every five years, looks at. The number of agricultural households identified in was 2,3 million. However, there are still data gaps on farmer profile (age, gender and population group), farm size, employment and use, land tenure, detailed livestock numbers, and the use of machinery, as well as the number of holdings with each crop and livestock type.
