Food security is a major concern world over. While income levels
are closely correlated with performance of the agricultural sector
in developing countries, decreasing land size, lack of credit,
inadequate use of appropriate technologies, lack of appropriate
marketing channels among other factors constrain farmers'
production. Food security and income generation of households is
threatened since agricultural production is adversely affected by
the constraints. Can non-agricultural income generating activities
improve the situation when the agricultural sector is
deteriorating? This book gives insights of how selected factors
(farm size, age; gender; education level of the household head,
access to credit, access to market information and use of
appropriate technologies) have influenced smallholder rural
households' participation in non-agricultural income generating
activities and the implications of this on food security. The
findings are useful to inform policy formulators and implementers
on critical factors to consider regarding interventions in a bid to
improve food security of smallholder rural households.
