Men's crops? Women's crops? The gender patterns of cropping in Ghana
MetadataShow full item record
This paper identifies cultural distinctions between men's crops and women's crops as found in the literature on agriculture in West Africa. The study was based on a nationally survey from Ghana used to examine if indeed there are women's and men's crops. The article defines farmers in three ways: the household head, plot holder, and the person who keeps the revenue from the plot. The study concludes that there are no major crops defined as men's crops and no crops are grown exclusively by women either. Women are involved in sales of all major products in Ghana.
