The study analyzed the economics of cassava processing among small scale processors in Nkanu East Local Government area of Enugu state, Nigeria. The specific objectives of the study were to; identify the socio economic characteristics of the respondents, identify the various cassava value added products available in the study area, determine the costs and returns from cassava processing, estimate the determinants of profitability in cassava processing function, Identify the constraints to cassava processing in the area. Data were collected by means of multistage random sampling technique from 60 cassava processors in the study area through a well-structured questionnaire. Data were analyzed using descriptive statistical tools such as table, percentage, mean and frequencies, gross margin analysis as well as multiple regression analysis. In the result of the regression analysis on the determinants of profitability in cassava processing function exponential functional form was chosen as the lead equation based on highest R value and number of significant variables. It showed that processing' experience, volume of sales, cost of processing and price of substitute were significant. The research also made some recommendations based on findings
