Non-profit group seeks ways to improve Nigeria’s low cassava yield

A non-profit international alliance of 45 organisations known as The Global Cassava Partnership for the 21st Century (GCP 21) is set to meet in June in Benin Republic to seek ways on how to help Nigerian farmers boost low cassava yield and create wealth for themselves as well as food security for the nation.

Cassava is the main source of carbohydrates in Nigeria and other West African countries, replacing some traditional staples such as millet and yam.
