The study spotlights the increasing feminization of agriculture, the emergence of female farmers as de facto primary farmers and the consequential impacts on agricultural land use, food security, rising food imports, among others. National policy on women development and on female farmers is analysed by perusing the National Economic Plans. The impact of Gender Mainstreaming, and Gender and Social Inclusion as development strategies in agriculture is assessed in the light of female farmers' extant situation.
Agriculture Landscape and the Country Context is presented in Chapter II to provide a backdrop for this Study.
