dc.description.abstractIn recent years, the issue of women's status; vis-a-vis land, has been of primary concern to those rural development agents who have become, aware of the vital role women play in. agricultural development. Several principal arguments demonstrating the effect that this lack of access has on agricultural development have emerged. Some, studies have argued that women's lack of access to and control over land has contributed to a decline in food production (Truscott, 1984).
