While seeds are sown and harvesting is carried, women farmers work for about 3,300 hours which is almost double that of male farmers who contribute 1,860 hours, as per a report by a leading international group. Women comprise the most of small and marginal farmers. Despite their contribution being high over male counterparts, their access to the market is low. They are either paid less or unpaid as they do not own much land.
