Abstract
Niniejsze opracowanie dotyczy czynników wpływających na dostęp kobiet do rolniczych zasobów produkcyjnych w nigeryjskim stanie Oyo. Na potrzeby badania wybrano łącznie 105 respondentek, przy czym dane podstawowe zostały zebrane za pomocą kwestionariusza. W badaniu wykorzystano zarówno statystykę opisową, jak i metody wnioskowania statystycznego. Z przeprowadzonej analizy wynika, że większość respondentek miała wykształcenie podstawowe (68,9%) oraz od 3 do 4 lat doświadczenia (66,7%), a powszechnie wykorzystywanymi zasobami były udoskonalone materiały siewne (53,3%), nawozy organiczne (52,4%) oraz herbicydy/pestycydy (47,6%). Głównym źródłem informacji byli przedstawiciele agencji ds. upowszechniania wiedzy (98,1%). Większość respondentek deklarowała swobodny dostęp do wody w celu nawadniania (93,3%) i do usług upowszechniania wiedzy (74,3%), ograniczony dostęp do udoskonalonych materiałów siewnych (94,3%), nawozów organicznych (90,5%) i pompy wody (56,2%) oraz brak dostępu do studni głębinowych i odwiertów wody (70,5%). Główną barierą dostępu do zasobów produkcyjnych był brak narzędzi kredytowych (98,1%). We wnioskach z badania stwierdzono, że czynnikami społeczno-gospodarczymi wpływającymi na dostęp kobiet do rolniczych zasobów produkcyjnych były wiek, wyznanie i poziom wykształcenia. Oznacza to, że istnieje zapotrzebowanie na rządowe strategie i programy rolne mające na celu dystrybuowanie rolniczych zasobów produkcyjnych w badanym regionie w taki sposób, aby kobiety w zaawansowanym wieku wyznające określoną religię i z wyższym poziomem wykształcenia nie były w nieuzasadniony sposób faworyzowane.

This study assessed the factors affecting women's access to agro-input resources on Oyo State, Nigeria. A total of 105 respondents were selected for the study. Primary data was collected with the use of questionnaire. Both descriptive and inferential statistics were employed for the study. Results of analysis shows that most of the respondents had primary education (68.9%), 3 to 4years of experience (66.7%) and commonly used inputs were improved seed (53.3%), organic fertilizer (52.4%) and herbicide/pesticide (47.6%). Main source of information was extension agent (98.1%). Most of the respondents had: free access to water for irrigation (93.3%) and agricultural extension services (74.3%), restricted access to improved seeds (94.3%), organic fertilizer (90.5%) and water pumping machine (56.2%) and no access to tubewell and washbore (70.5%). Main constraint to accessibility of inputs was lack of credit facilities (98.1%). The study concludes that the socio-economic factors affecting women's accessing to agricultural input resources were their age, religion and educational status. Hence the need for government agricultural policy and programmes aimed at distributing agricultural input in the study area that should strictly ensure that women of increased age, a particular religious affiliation and more educated ones should not be unnecessary favoured.
