Despite the field production constraints, sometimes production exceeds local household consumption levels in certain bumper harvest periods of the year ushering in new challenges such as wastage due to rotting of fresh tubers. This is further exacerbated by poor post-harvest handling and low prices of fresh tubers. In order to avoid post-harvest losses, farmers have been engaged in traditional processing through peeling and drying chips to make flour and other products like lira-lira or waragi (MAAIF, 2010). Lira-lira is bioethanol produced through fermentation of cassava flour.
