    Although there is ample evidence of differences in how and where men and women acquire information, most research on learning and household decisionmaking only considers access to information for a single, typically male, household head. This assumption may be problematic in developing-country agriculture, where women play a fundamental role in farming. Using gender-disaggregated social network data from Uttar Pradesh, India, we analyze agricultural information networks among men and women.

    The recent decline in India’s rural
    female labor force participation is generally attributed to
    higher rural incomes in a patriarchal society. Together with
    the growing share of the urban population, where female
    participation rates are lower, this alleged income effect
    does not bode well for the empowerment of women as India
    develops. This paper argues that a traditional supply-side
    interpretation is insufficient to account for the decline in

    two large settlements, Satghara (a census town) and

    social dynamics of the rural non-farm economy by empirically

    In the past 50 years, Indian agriculture
    has undergone a major transformation, from dependence on
    food aid to becoming a consistent net food exporter. The
    gradual reforms in the agricultural sector (following the
    broader macro-reforms of the early 1990s) spurred some
    unprecedented innovations and changes in the food sector
    driven by private investment. These impressive achievements
    must now be viewed in light of the policy and investment
