Dr. Ola Ogunyinka, NRI’s Senior Research Fellow Monitoring, Evaluation and Impact Specialist has recommended that the CAVA II Uganda project looks into other drying mechanisms that are affordable to most of the farmers (small holder farmers). He particularly pointed out a possible look into the inflatable (Collapsible) solar drying technology that is already being used in Ghana and that Uganda can learn from their experience with this new technology and adopt it as well.

He noted that the successful establishment of the 3 improved varieties (NASE 14, NASE 19 and NAROCASS 1) in partnership with the cassava seed systems project will greatly boost Fresh Cassava Root (FCR) supply and thus greatly contributing to the targets of CAVA II Uganda.
