Gender issues and the adoption of maize technology in Africa: An annotated bibliography - Mexico, DF (Mexico) CIMMYT : 1999 - Printed|Computer File - CIMMYT Economics Program Paper ; No. 99-02 .

As new technologies for maize production become available in Africa, a number of gender issues arise. To what extent do women farmers adopt these technologies? How do constraints faced by women farmers affect their decisions about technology adoption? How does the adoption of technology affect women farmers and how does it change the dynamics of labor and resource allocation within the household?.|Unfortunately, few of these questions have been directly addressed with regard to maize technologies in Africa. However, the following annotated bibliography includes a wide range of articles that provide some insights in these issues, including articles on women and farming in Africa, technology adoption, maize farming in Africa, and household decision-making.|In instances where the majority of articles in an edited volume are relevant, the book, rather than the individuals articles, is cited in the bibliography. In instances where only one or two articles are relevant, the specific articles are cited.
