Cassava value chain in Kumasi, Ghana: A case study
Laveena Sharma and Deepak Pal
Cassava is a tuber crop originating in South America and grown in tropical and subtropical areas throughout the world. Cassava use varies significantly by region. In Africa, cassava is primarily grown for food; no continent depends as much on root and tuber crops in feeding its population as does Africa. The cassava value chain is one of the fast growing value chains in Kumasi, Ghana. The raw cassava is produced by farmers in and around Kumasi and its being brought to the market where the marketing and buying takes place and other products made from it. The overall objective of this study is to conduct a cassava value chains analysis in Kumasi, Ghana. The outcome of this study will contribute to the development of a strategic plan to improve the productivity and competitiveness of cassava to the benefit of all the chain actors.
