This chapter of "Living Under Contract: Contract Farming and Agrarian Transformation in Sub-Saharan Africa" focuses on the impact of the Jahaly-Pacharr Project on rice production of peasant households in The Gambia. The project utilizes a system of contract farming which has resulted in significant restructuring of labor organization within households, as well as access to and control over property and resources. The author suggests that the success of contract farming systems cannot be accurately measured without thoroughly examining the social relations which structure men's and women's labor and access to resources among households.
