Abstract

This survey is one of the first to take an integrated approach, incorporating all aspects of smallholder family farming enterprises, rather than discrete tasks or farming activities separately. The sample of 197 households was stratified into four wealth categories and differences in needs between the categories are revealed. Interventions to address poverty, based on the findings of the survey, were identified, including, as the prime need, increasing agricultural productivity through the use of better hoes.
