Cassa 600x338The Nigerian Cassava Growers Association (NCGA) has said it is ready to increase Nigeria’s Cassava output by threefold due to the rising demand from China for cassava products.
According to the President of the Association, Segun Adewunmi, plans are rife to increase output to 200 million tons annually on 5 million hectares (12 million acres) by the end of 2021, using a new growing technique and crop variety that yields an average of 40 tons per hectare.
“Chinese firms are demanding for Nigeria’s cassava pellets and we are positioning ourselves to meet this demand in the next three years; for instance, we just got an import request from China and other countries for 10 million tons of cassava chips” Adewunmi said.
Nigeria is reportedly the world’s leading grower of cassava, producing 57.6 million metric tons in 2017, exporting about 3.2 million tons annually and earning a record $136 million in 2013.
