Findings show that most of thc rural women (95%) had active participation in multiple farm practices including secd management, post-harvest operations and livestock management. But in casc of dccision-making patterns, women were predominantly dictated by men in adopting new farm technology. Moreover, they had ncithcr any access to cxtcnsion scrviccs nor any institutional credit resources, apart from a host of problcms pcrccivcd by them.
