Title: Effects of urbanization on agriculture: a case study of rural women in Akobo village a transitional area
Authors: Fawole, O. P.
Issue Date: 1999
Abstract: The extension of the city of Ibadan has transformed the agrarian village of Akobo into an urban suburb in the Lagelu Local Government Area (LGA) of Oyo State. This was the outcome for a study conducted to investigate the income-generating activities and attitude towards agriculture of 85 women in Akobo. Data were collected during the investigation using a personal interview schedule. The findings of the study indicated that Akobo women still engage in agriculture and agro-allied activities. However, majority interviewed were more involved in non-agricultural activities with greater access to markets. It is recommended that vocational and literacy programmes be organized for the Akobo women. This will allow them to learn new skills, trade and establish small cottage industries that will enable them cope, survive and maintain viable life-styles in a changing environment.
