In a Press Release made available to AgroNigeria, Managing Director, NIRSAL Plc, Aliyu Abdulhameed said that although cassava was a main source of nutrition for over one billion people across the globe, the cassava value chain had not reached its full potential as a tool for the transformation of African economies through industrialisation.
Abdulhameed who was speaking at the just concluded 4th International Cassava Conference held in Cotonou, Republic of Benin, lamented that despite Africa having a comparative advantage in cassava production, most African countries still relied largely on imports from other continents to meet industrial requirements for starch, high-quality cassava flour, ethanol and glucose production.
“According to FAO, Africa produces over 54% of the world’s cassava, with Nigeria taking the global lead with a production of about 54.8 million MT in 2014. Nevertheless, with an average yield of 7.7 MT per hectare, Nigeria’s cassava production is low compared to the 23.4 MT and 22.2 MT average yield per hectare produced in Indonesia and Thailand respectively.” He said.
“This low production hampers the development of industrial processing of cassava due to the competition between sustenance production, industry and the peculiarities in its cultivation.” He added.
Abdulhameed however said for the crop to serve as catalyst for the transformation of the African economy, cassava value chain required financial services that can support larger agricultural investments to improve access to quality inputs and mechanisation services for smallholder farmers.
He also stressed on the need to facilitate the flow of affordable finance and investment to agriculture and agribusiness in African countries in order to mitigate low-quality inputs, poor production practices, outdated technologies, diseases, climate change amongst other challenges.
“With agribusiness finance facilitation tools like field aggregation, governance, geospatial mapping & monitoring, primary post-harvest processing, innovative insurance products, business models and financing frameworks, credit risk guarantees and technical assistance, the radical cassava transformation in Africa can be achieved. “ He enthused.
The NIRSAL Managing Director therefore urged African governments, researchers, financial institutions, development partners, investors, farmers and other players in the agriculture value chain to collaborate for the financing, commercialization, up-scaling and adoption of new technologies and research products for cassava in order to achieve huge returns on agribusiness and the attainment of food security in Africa.
