INTRODUCTION \ Globally, rice is a very important food crop. It is an ancient crop consumed as healthy and staple food by more than half of the world population. Only the flow lines of inputs to and output from the paddy crop are shown.

Element 6, resource-generating activities: In the example of Figurethere are two of these supplying some resources to paddy (e.g., a prior fertility-generating legume crop and possibly a cattle activity providing oxpower).

These farm enterprises are crop, livestock, aquaculture, agro-forestry, agri-horticulture and sericulture [19]. This means that most of the farmers were within the age of active work force. The result of the analysis on gender shows that there were more females (%) than males ( 67%) who engaged in rice production in the study area.
