ECONOMIC AND ENVIRONMENTAL FACTORS THAT INFLUENCE THE PRODUCTIVITY OF CASSAVA PRODUCTION IN NIGERIA
Journal of Basic and Applied Research International,
The purpose of this research was to investigate the economic and environmental factors that have an effect on cassava farming, as well as the numerous products and benefits that come from cassava farming, the challenges that are faced by cassava farming, and the governmental interventions that are geared toward promoting cassava farming in the rural context of Nigeria. In order to gather primary data from cassava farmers in Owanmi, Edo State, as well as in Adani, Enugu State, a study methodology known as descriptive explanatory was used. In order to choose the study sample, the approach of purposeful sampling was used, and the research instruments consisted of a semi-structured questionnaire and an in-depth interview guide. The qualitative data were studied by looking back over previous journals, and the content analysis method was used to examine the articles and news. The findings of the research revealed that a number of economic and environmental variables had an impact on cassava growing in the site under investigation. In addition, the data demonstrated that cassava production results in a variety of finished goods as well as byproducts that fulfill a variety of economic factors.
