Abstract



The study focused on the rural women's preference for selected programmes of the National Special Programme for Food Security (NSPFS) in Imo State, Nigeria. Data was collected with the aid of structured interview from 150 randomly selected women in the study area. Results from the study showed that respondents preferred activities in crop production enterprise more than other enterprises, this was followed by animal production enterprise and then agro processing enterprise. It was therefore recommended that adequate awareness should be intensified to place other enterprises in equal footing with crop production enterprise in order to fully combat food security problem holistically.
