This research work was carried out, to assess the impact of cassava in Nigeria. 4 Local governments, namely: (Ife East, Ife South, Ife Central and Ife North), local government areas were sampled. 4,000 open questionnaires were distributed to the 4 Local Governments, out of which 1000 was used for the farmers in each local government. A total of 40 different locations were visited in all the four Local Governments, out of which 100 questionnaires were used in each location. It was gathered that above 75% of the farmers from the four local governments, supported, assessing the impact of cassava in Nigeria. while below 25% of the farmers, could not even understand whether or not there was any need, to assess the impact of cassava in Nigeria. The results from the questionnaires when using Pearson two-tailed correlation coefficient revealed that there was a significant difference from the summary data collected from the farmers within the four local government areas visited and sampled, (p > 0.05) table 5. This shows a strong positive correlation, which implying that, to assess the impact of cassava in Nigeria, is strongly influenced and enhanced the farmer’s support in our society, and therefore has made the research work to become a reality, (p>0.05) table 5. The reasons may be due to the fact that, cassava farming is not mainly done, to produce items, solvents, alcohol, glucose, animal feed, energy, fertilizers, and some extra by-products, but many industries in Nigeria also used cassava tubers, as major raw materials for: cassava flour factories, noddles production industries, alcohol and liquor production industries, garri factories, fufu producers etc. Pie chart was used to depict the summary data of each of the local government areas sampled in Ile–Ife Kingdom, of Nigeria.
