Lack of access to appropriate mechanisation to support production and processing of cassava is impeding the development of the cassava market in Africa even though the continent is the highest producer of the crop in the world. This technological gap has left farmers with no option but to produce cassava on a low scale mainly for subsistence and for the local markets. In Africa, 93 percent is consumed as food – compared to Latin America and Asia where less than half is consumed. This situation is underutilising the potential that cassava offers the continent – both as a source of food and as an industrial raw material.
