Women in Agriculture

Highlighting Women in Agriculture

Women are a force in agriculture, whether it's breeding new plants and animals or tending orchards, livestock, and fields.

Currently, women comprise about 43 percent of the agricultural labor pool in developing nations, and they're continuing to advance in the agricultural sciences.

In recognition of their valuable contributions, the Cornell Alliance for Science will regularly showcase the stories of outstanding scientists and farmers who also happen to be women.
