Revenue drivers of women labour in crop production in south east Nigeria
This paper identified socioeconomic factors affecting their revenue from crop production. It is based on farm level data collected in South East Nigeria from 400 randomly selected farm units with women farmers. Results of the analysis show that household socio-economic factors that increased their revenue were occupation, farm experience and household size. Participation in planting and harvesting also increased their revenue. Also, the societal constraint militating against women’s revenue were lack of finance, lack of improved inputs, lack of storage facilities, lack of credit access, land tenure problem, poor road network. These observations underscored the need for special programmes that empower and recognize women especially through education, finance and information.
