ABSTRACT

 This study examined the value chain analysis (production process and cost related to each element of production chain to add value). On cassava and cassava products in Imo State, specifically in Ohaji, to ascertain the farm size holdings of the respondents as well as the ownership of the land used for production. It also identified the forms of labour used in production, household size, farming experience and how the products are utilized. The study also estimated the value of cassava products in the area within the current year. It also examined how products are sold to the final consumers. The study was carried out in one Local Government Area out 'or the three agricultural zones in Imo State. A total of 40 ยท 5 respondents were sampled out of the two villages but 31 out of 40 'respondents responded. It was also found that the value obtained from processing cassava into garri gave the highest value among others derivatives. The value of the coefficient of determination R was 0.8311 which implies that 83.11% of the variations in profit from cassava value addition were explained by the variables in the model, i.e. the independent variable tested accounted for 83.11% of the variability in the dependent variable. R was found to be significant at 1%, 5% and I 0% respectively.

Key words; cassava, value chain analysis, production, derivatives, farming.
