    This book is an attempt to comprehend and compile the history, present status, and future trends of the gender roles in agriculture.

    The book comprises of three divisions viz., Gender in agriculture development (Part I), Gender in allied sectors of agriculture (Part II) and Data, Tools and approaches in gender analysis (Part III), that explicates the prevalent gendered relegations. It provides insights on the gender dimensions in Indian agriculture, including initiatives, policy reforms and mends the literature gap in gender roles in the sector. The gender roles and impacts from different cultural and geographical horizons of agricultural and allied sectors in the emerging contexts of globalization, urbanization, climate change and the Covid19 pandemic are discussed in the book.
