Specifically, the study described the socio-economic characteristics of yellow root cassava farmers, identified the varieties of yellow root cassava available to the farmers, investigated the cassava production practices and experience of respondents, estimated the cost and returns to yellow root cassava production enterprise and identified the challenges to yellow root cassava production enterprise in the study area

A multistage sampling technique was used to select one hundred and twenty (120) respondents and data were collected through the use of structured questionnaire. The data were analysed with descriptive statistics, cost and returns analysis as well as regression analysis.

Exactly 55.0 percent of the respondents had 3-4 years of experience in yellow root cassava production with the mean found to be 4.3 years. The average area of land cultivated by respondents found to be 1.3 hectares. The enterprise was found to be profitable with BCR of 1.50. The results of the regression analysis showed that age (p≤0.05), household size (p≤0.01), age years of schooling (p≤0.05), years of farming experience (p≤0.05), age farm size (p≤0.05), cost of cassava stem (p≤0.01), transportation cost (p≤0.05), rent on land (p≤0.01) and depreciation cost of implements (p≤0.01) were significantly related with revenue generated from yellow root cassava production. Most pressing facing respondents include scarcity of cassava cultivars, poor marketing network, inadequate of land for planting and inadequate lands for planting.
