Rural women farmers are inadequately served by existing extension services. Numerous factors contribute to this lack, including government policies, cultural constraints, extension's focus on male farmers, and women's lack of access to resources.
This study examines ways that Honduran women farmers receive agricultural information. Using participatory research, individual women, women's groups, and organizations are interviewed to determine training they received and training they desire. Issues related to quality of training are also explored. Recommendations for development organizations to improve their outreach to women farmers are included.
