ZAMBIA National Cassava Association (ZANACA) says increased production and developed market linkages in the cassava value chain is critical for the country to fully commercialise the crop and attain agricultural diversification. ZANACA chairperson Brighton Mulonga said Government needs to come up with a cassava policy that will help provide strategies and regulations to address various challenges affecting the growth of the sub-sector.“Transforming a traditional crop like cassava into an industrial product requires increased productivity, strong market linkages and improved access to mechanisation to promote value addition and food and nutrition security. “To increase cassava production, Government should consider developing policies that will enhance and create effective demand for cassava products on the local and regional markets to grow the value,” Mr Mulonga said.
