Creating interest and excitement around gender study has become an important part of agricultural development. Government and other stakeholders are giving more priority to gender issues and support their investment to empower women and diminish discrimination between genders. In Nigeria Women in agricultural extension (WIA) was established in other to increases voice and share of women in agricultural sector. Unfortunately this development comes with challenges and limitation that increases gender inequality. Gender system is diverse and complex as they determine by environmental norms and value. This paper review the evidence that is in public domain in relation to limitation of WIA in access to agricultural land resources, cultural belief and tradition of the people in the social system. It had been found that the women in agricultural approach resulted to gender differences and promotes gender inequality as it did not consider norms and value of the community. Therefore Women and development approach should change with Gender and Development (GAD) approaches. Policy makers and government at all levels should serve as driving tools in promoting gender and development approach and the implication for supporting (WIA) may result to gender bias that may affects societal culture, belief and tradition that may resulted to total rejection of the program and consequently it may cause a serious threats to agricultural development of the country.
