HOW DOES GENDER AFFECT THE ADOPTION OF AGRICULTURAL INNOVATIONS? THE CASE OF IMPROVED MAIZE TECHNOLOGY IN GHANA

Michael L. Morris and Cheryl Doss ()

No 21609, 1999 Annual meeting, August 8-11, Nashville, TN from American Agricultural Economics Association (New Name 2008: Agricultural and Applied Economics Association)

Abstract: Why do men and women adopt agricultural technologies at different rates? Evidence from Ghana suggests that gender-linked differences in the adoption of modern maize varieties and chemical fertilizer are not attributable to inherent characteristics of the technologies themselves but instead result from gender-linked differences in access to key inputs.
