ABSTRACT

Cassava (roots and tubers) and Rice (cereals) are common staples among small scaled farmers in developing countries like Nigeria and it is an age-long practices. The categories of farmers that engages in value-addition of processing have recorded an appreciable income increase and has economic advantages. Hence, this study examines economic analysis o f these staple foods in Ekiti State, Nigeria using two dominant local-government areas (lrepodun / lfelodun and Jkole). The study adopted a two stage sampling procedure to select a representative sample for the study to select 140 food processors in Rice and Cassava respectively . Structured questionnaire was used to collect data used to achieve the objectives o f the study. The socio-economy variables results revealed modal age range o f 61-70 with mean of55years. Experience and years of education in food processing are significant factors. Cross tab analysis revealed that 31% o f the farmers who took decision to process farm outputs further had tertiary education. Moreover, proportion of farmers that engages processing of staple foods are 95. 7%. Cross tabulation analysis revealed that 34.3% of those who processed farm inputs made N100, 000.00 and above annually as against 11% of farmers who did not, while t-test statistics revealed a significant difference between farmers who processed food and those who did not. Multiple regression multiple determination (R2) results indicated farmers 'decision to processed farm outputs further are72% and income increase 74% respectively . Farmers who made significant revenue did processed farm outputs suggesting that food processing is a significant factors to income increase. Hence, the study recommends that government should formulate and implement economically viable value addition reforms policy to ensure that farmers process their farm outputs further.
