Gender Participation in Cassava Processing Activities in Ayetoro Area of Ogun State. Paper presented at the Farm Management Association of Nigeria Conference

Fapojuwo investigates men and women's participation in cassava processing activities in Nigeria. Men and women processors participate in different processing activities and use different processing techniques. The study collected data on these techniques from 240 respondents, then analyzed data using percentage distribution and an analysis of variance. Results established there are significant differences between participation by sex, age, household size, and sources of cassava among men and women processors. Significant differences also exist between the attitude of men and women participating in cassava processing activities. These differences in attitude relate to the perceived need for men's strength and the availability of time on men's part. The study notes that men and women face similar constraints in cassava processing activities.
