CHAPTER ONE

INRODUCTION

1.1. BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY

1.2. MENT OF THE PROBLEM

Garri is the most popular form in which cassava ( Crantz) is consumed by several millions of people in the African continent, especially in the West Africa sub region (Ofuya and Akpoti; 2013; Ogiehor, 2010). Garri production is laborious and cumbersome. Production methods vary from one ity to another resulting in products of non-uniform quality. Post process handling practices such as spreading on the floor, display in open bowls in the market and sales points and the use of various packaging to haul finished products from rural to urban areas may exacerbate contamination. idering the cumbersome nature of production process, there is need for appropriate storage soa s to have the finished products to cities where large buyers live, the importance of garri in dietary intake and the need to meet the increasing international demand, the evaluation and identification of adequate storage that will keep the overall quality of garri during distribution and at the point of consumption becomes imperative. This work was designed to evaluate the economics of appropriate storage methods of garri.

1.3 AIMS OF THE STUDY

The major aim of the study is to examine the economics of appropriate storage methods of gari in Nigeria.  Other specific objectives of the study include;

  1. To examine and disseminate information for farmers on best storage practice for garri.
  2. To examine the conduct of gari production using gari frying machines.
  3. To examine the impact of appropriate storage methods on availability of garri in the study area.
  4. To determine factors responsible for deterioration in storage of gari in the study area.
  5. To examine the relationship between appropriate storage methods and availability of garri in the study area.
  6. To examine extension of shelf life of garri and to determine storage methods which are most appropriate for garri.

1.4 RESEARCH QUESTIONS

  1. How can information be disseminated for farmers on best storage practice for garri?
  2. What is the conduct of gari production using gari frying machines?
  3. What is the impact of appropriate storage methods on availability of garri in the study area?
  4. What are factors responsible for deterioration in storage of gari in the study area?
  5. What are the relationship between appropriate storage methods and availability of garri in the study area?
  6. What is extension of shelf life of garri and to what are the storage methods which are most appropriate for garri?

1.5 RESEARCH HYPOTHESES

Hypothesis 1

H0: There is no significant impact of appropriate storage methods on availability of garri in the study area

H1: There is a significant impact of appropriate storage methods on availability of garri in the study area

Hypothesis 2

H0: There is no significant relationship between appropriate storage methods and availability of garri in the study area.

H1: There is a significant relationship between appropriate storage methods and availability of garri in the study area.

1.6 SIGNIFICANCE OF THE STUDY

This is necessary as it will guide processors and the potential processors in the adoption of appropriate storage methods that will make for delivery of high quality and sustainable quantity of garri to the consumers. Knowledge of a more viable method will also help in the proper allocation and re-allocation of resources which will enhance efficiency and productivity. It is hoped that the findings would be a guide to agricultural engineers in the choice, design and fabrication of storage tools and equipment suitable. This study will help processors to understand the costs and returns accrued to them, how the returns can be improved leading to a better standard of living thereby alleviating poverty. It will also bring into lime light health implications and dangers associated with various storage methods. Finally, the empirical findings and suggestions based on the study will be of help to policy makers and to interested research scholars as useful reference point.

1.7 SCOPE AND LIMITATION OF THE STUDY

The study is restricted to economics of appropriate storage methods of garri in Patani L.G.A in delta state.

LIMITATION OF THE STUDY

Financial constraint: Insufficient fund tends to impede the efficiency of the researcher in sourcing for the relevant , literature or information and in the process of data collection (internet, questionnaire and interview)

Time constraint: The researcher will simultaneously engage in this study with other academic work. This consequently will cut down on the time devoted for the .

1.8 DEFINITION OF TERMS

Storage: Is the act of safekeeping of the quantity and quality of an agricultural material so as to prevent them from deterioration for a specific period of time beyond their normal shelf life.

Garri:  is a staple food prepared from the roots of cassava ( Crantz).
