Gender differences in access to and ownership of Agricultural assets and services in Konso southern Ethiopia


Ethiopian Institute of Agricultural Research




The study was conducted at KonsospacialWoreda. The main objective of this study was focused on the assessment of gender disparity in access to agricultural resources and services. This study covers the three Kebeles from the KonsospacialWoreda. From those three Kebeles 190 respondent households were included in this study. The data were analyzed through simple descriptive statistics (frequency, percentage and mean) and inferential statistics (independent t-test) and chi square tests. The result showed that male respondents had better mean land holding size than that of female respondents.  Male farmers had own more farm land and livestock. Even though both male and female farmers lack formal education, the male group had better education level.  Male farmers had better access to extension services than female farmers. In the study area both male and female respondent farmers were affected by different constraints in access to productive resource. The finding suggested that, the governmental and non-governmental organization should give empathies for adult education and extension training for women. It improves women’s awareness and understanding about different agricultural resources and improved farm technologies.
