Cassava is a unique crop, because it is the primary source of carbohydrate for more than 1 billion people. In Nigeria, cassava has become a major sustenance crop and currently and is the world’s largest producer of cassava. However, the yields on smallholder farms are relatively low largely due to pests’ infections and other various cassava production constraints. A participatory rural appraisal study was therefore conducted to gather information on farmers’ preferences, perception and knowledge of cassava green mite (CGM) and other production constraints and to lay the foundation for the development of CGM resistant cultivars in Nigeria
This work is part of the “Next Generation Cassava Breeding Project” which is supported by the UK Department for International Development, in partnership with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
