Nigeria produces over 34 million tonnes of tuberous roots of cassava annually. Cassava production has been increasing for over 20 years in area cultivated and in yield per hectare.
Cassava is produced largely by small-scale farmers using rudimentary implements. Capital is a major limitation in agriculture; only a few farmers have access to rural credit.
Almost all the cassava produced is used for human consumption and less than 5 per cent is used in industries. This is an indication that cassava production needs to be ramped up as its industrial need is equally high. .
