    Abstract

    This manuscript investigates the extent to which children contribute to the household’s agricultural activities. The conclusion that children play an important role in the farming activities of Ugandan agricultural households is supported by two key findings: (i) Child labour accounts for approimately 9% of the household’s annual agricultural earnings; and (ii) on the bases that most child labour is performed on the family farm and smoothly functioning labour markets are rare, land ownership increases the household’s demand for child labour in agricultural activities.
