About Cassava Matters

Cassava Matters is a collaborative platform between the Cassava Weed Management Project also known as the Sustainable Weed Management Technologies for Cassava Systems in Nigeria, the African Cassava Agronomy Initiative (ACAI) and the Cassava Seed Systems project also known as Building an Economically Sustainable, Integrated Seed System for Cassava in Nigeria (BASICS).
The ultimate goal of the three projects is to improve the livelihoods and yields of smallholder cassava farmers in Africa through best practices in weed management and agronomy.

This platform seeks to provide information that will improve cassava yields, cassava root quality, cassava supply to the processing sector, and fertilizer sales, as well as help reduce the drudgery involved in weeding cassava farms across Africa.

Our Mission

Our mission is to help cassava actors especially farmers with the right information that will help them to maximize and increase the yield of cassava thereby creating wealth for cassava farmers through improved technologies while empowering them with the knowledge and information that will help transform rural livelihoods.
