dc.description.abstractGender-related factors often influence the participation of women and men in small-scale agriculture in Sub-Saharan Africa. This is because the dynamics associated with small-scale peri-urban greenhouse farming are considerably different from small-scale farming in general due to context specific factors. This paper therefore, sought to establish the effect of these on greenhouse farming in the peri-urban area of Ongata Rongai, Kenya. A descriptive survey design was used to collect both qualitative and quantitative data. The study concludes that understanding the gender diversity is crucial in explaining women and men’s participation in small-scale greenhouse farming. It therefore, recommended that gender responsive measures need to be implemented to help more women and men not only to adopt and benefit from small-scale greenhouse farming but also optimize their participation.en_US
