The potential of engaging female agricultural producers in high value crop activities has been in the increasing focus of much of the recent development literature and policy discourse. Using a rich representative household survey for Malawi, this work draws a profile of successful women farmers and the policies and interventions associated with this profile. Our study finds that female cash crop decision-making has significant impact on both efficiency and welfare. Female cash crop decision-making is encouraged by female ownership of land, credit allocations to women, and village-level infrastructure (development agencies, savings and credit unions).
