UKAID project seeks to boost cassava mechanization and ethanol production in Nigeria

In Nigeria, an UKAID-funded project is seeking to help cassava farmers mechanize their harvest too boost production efficiency while grouping them together in clusters in an effort to increase opportunities for ethanol production. The country is the largest cassava grower in the world while ethanol demand is around 400 million liters annually. The Cassava Mechanization and Agro-Processing (CAMAP) run by the African Agricultural Technology Foundation aimed to reach 3.5 million farmers over the project’s five year timeline but its uptake has been so successful more might be impacted.
