It is second most important sources of carbohydrate in Sub-Sahara Africa after maize. Cassava is drought resistant, can be grown on marginal land where other crops do not do well, and requires little inputs. For these reasons, African small and poor farmers grow it widely as a subsistence crop. We shall encourage and conduct training workshops for local villagers who are interested in cassava plantation and capital sourcing techniques. We see ourselves making a contribution to the effort by the Nigerian government to rid her people from poverty.
Our efforts towards ensuring and facilitating this cassava plantation will result in an increasing number of villagers engaging in this plantation as individuals or groups thus promoting employment and ready market for the produce from the plantation as we shall be off-takers of the cassava for onward processing.
