1.75 (4 votes)
Document Description
The study examined marketing of cassava products and non-cassava based commodities among women in Iddo Local Government Area (LGA)-a major cassava-processing zone in Oyo State, Nigeria. Data on the commodities were obtained from 80 registered women marketers through a structured interview schedule. The study revealed a mix of cassava products with marketed and varied levels of involvement. The average annual income of cassava products was between N5, 000 and N49, 000 while that from non-cassava based commodities was between N5, 000 and N20, 000. It is concluded that cassava products have a strong potential in contributing to increase in volume of trade at local, state and national levels. It is imperative, therefore, that these women are provided with technical and managerial skills to enable them increase productivity, manage their income and cope with market forces.
