Involvement of Rural Women in Field Activities
Women are an actively involved component of rural life in dryland areas. They play key role in various agricultural operations such as harvesting of fodder and it’s feeding to livestock, milking of animals, making farm yard manure cakes for using as fuel, harvesting of wheat etc. However, their services are hardly recognized. They are rarely provided any opportunity to share their experiences and capabilities. Realizing the need, CRP Dryland Systems therefore, provided them an opportunity to evaluate cooking quality of various promising wheat cultivars that were evaluated at farmers fields under the project.
