Abstract
Zaangażowanie kobiet w rolnictwie i agrobiznesie jest coraz częściej postrzegane jako składnik sukcesu w produkcji i zarządzaniu w gospodarstwie. Kobiety mają unikalne potrzeby informacyjne, które mają pozwolić im na pełne uczestnictwo w procesie podejmowania decyzji. Efektem tego jest rozwój i wdrożenie rolniczych projektów szkoleniowych skierowanych do kobiet wiejskich. Pomimo tego, iż można znaleźć przykłady tego, iż z niniejszych programów korzystały kobiety związane z rolnictwem, to jednak brak jest formalnej ewaluacji rolniczych programów szkoleniowych w Południowej Dakocie. Celem niniejszej pracy jest zaprezentowanie wniosków z przeprowadzonej oceny i studium ewaluacyjnego rolniczych programu szkoleniowego: Sustainable Annie's Systems in South Dakota for Years to Come (SASSY). Celem prowadzonych badań było dostarczenie przykładów empirycznych, które potwierdziłyby pozytywny wpływ niniejszego programu na jego uczestników. Niniejszy artykuł prezentuje te wyniki.(abstrakt oryginalny)

Women's involvement in agriculture and agribusiness is increasingly recognized as an important component of success in farm and ranch production and management. Women have unique information needs to help them more fully participate in agricultural decision-making. This has resulted in the development and implementation of agricultural training projects and programs specifically targeting rural women. Although there has been anecdotal evidence that these programs have benefitted women in agriculture, there had been no formal evaluation of the efficacy of agricultural training programs in South Dakota. The purpose of this paper is to report the findings of an assessment and evaluation study of the agricultural training program Sustainable Annie's Systems in South Dakota for Years to Come (SASSY). The research was conducted to provide empirical evidence as to the degree that this program had a positive impact on the participants. This article shares those results.(original abstract)
