ABSTRACT

 

Article No.: 121819218

Type: Research

 

 

The study was conducted to know the state
of cassava processing machinery and the knowledge of operators on maintenance
of that machinery in Akinyele local government areas of Oyo state. The local
Government is currently hosting International Institute of Tropical
Agriculture IITA and total number of 50 cassava processors responded to our
questionnaires. The distribution was 5 cassava processors per ward. The
questionnaires used to collect data consists of the demographic structures,
observed cassava processing machinery, methods of operating the machines,
assessment of abandoned machines and reasons, ownership of the processing
centres, sources of power for operating machines and the relationship between
the cassava processors and the machine manufacturers. The results show that
75% of the processors were female, average age between 31-40 years (46%).
Most of the machines abandoned were obsolete because of new technology and no
capacity development to improve those machines for the cassava processors.
This will be needed to boost agriculture and employment.
