Abstract

The study assessed participation of women in Fadama II Project in Michika Local Government area of Adamawa State, Nigeria. Simple random sampling technique was used to select 116 respondents who were administered interview schedules. Descriptive statistics (frequency distribution and percentages) and inferential statistics (multiple regression analysis) were used to analyse the data. The findings indicated that some (40.52%) of the respondents have their ages between 41-50, and that majority (60.07%) were widowed. The regression analysis revealed that educational level and access to credit were significant and positive at 1% and 5% levels respectively. The major problem, the study identified to affect the women participants in the project was delay in the supply of farm input materials, representing 71.55% of the respondents in the study area. The study recommended that women should be encouraged to be enrolled in adult education classes to enable improve participating in Fadama activities. The study also recommended the need for enlightenment of participants on the availability and sources of credit facilities to respondents in the study area.
