Despite the harsh in the country currently due to the recent outbreak of coronavirus pandemic.
Majority of Nigerians living in the city found it hard to feed especially at this present time, due to the shut down of business activities.
Some People in the rural area, are not that affected by the hardship of the country especially when it come to feeding, their major occupation still remain farming and so many other things.
Nigeria, according to the FAO’s report, is the largest producer of cassava in the world. It is the country’s most common staple food.
There is hardly a single house in Nigeria where garri, one of numerous food products from cassava, is not taken either with cold water or with hot water as eba. The plant can be grown anywhere in the country, and that the process of nurturing it to maturity is less tedious. This makes it less costly to farm and highly profitable.
Also, cassava does not require an expanse of land to farm it at commercial level. A cassava plantation on just two plots of land can fetch the farmer hundreds of thousand naira. Planting to harvest period takes maximum of eighteen months.
