Of all the female agricultural workers in the world, 39% live and work in India. The arable agricultural produce of India includes jute, rice, oilseed, cotton, sugar cane, wheat, tea, and potatoes. Indian pastoral agriculture includes farming cattle, water buffalo, goats, poultry, sheep and fish. Over half of the female agricultural workers in the world are in Southern Asia.

The United Arab Emirates has the lowest percentage of the population who are female agricultural workers.

This map of female agricultural workers (where Asian territories are large) is almost an inversion of the per person distribution of working tractors (where the most are found in richer regions).

"... whoever could make two ears of corn or two blades of grass grow on a patch of land where only one grew before, does a greater service to mankind ... than the whole gang of politicians put together." King of Brobingdag, 1754

Territory size shows the proportion of worldwide female agricultural workers living there.
