There is a yield gap between men and women farmers averaging between 20-30 percent due significantly to the different resources used. Given equal access to resources as men, women would achieve the same yield levels, boosting total agricultural output in developing countries by 2.5-4 percent. One major problem directly attributing to this yield gap is land access.
This presentation is based on the AMA Innovation Lab projects for the Mind the Gap Workshop. This workshop was designed to allow for discussion of the pressing problem of the “yield gap” and the constraints to technology adoption that cause it.
This presentation took place at the Ronald Reagan Building, Polaris Room and International Center, United States on November 3, 2016.
