One study was conducted in the hosted village of the cooperative of women producing hungry rice of Mandela in order to point out the manner of women to relay men in hungry rice cropping and to analyze how they manage this crop in the context of climate change. Information was collected with 50% of the cooperative members selected randomly. Tools used were historical profile, matrix of climate change and semi-structured interview. Results have shown men abandoning hungry rice cropping since the drought of the early year of eighty’s. Cropping continuity was insured by women who produced hungry rice in one local inputs based cultural practice (use of local genotypes, crop rotation and manure application). The two cropping systems (rotation maize-hungry rice and hungry rice receiving 2t of mature/ha) have improved yield by 48% and 62% respectively. The gross income generated by these cropping systems are 30 000 and 60 000 FCFA/ha respectively. Hungry rice production conditions are characterized by the absence of local source of input supply, selling agricultural produce at low prices, specific use of female labor and low soil fertility.
