        Cassava diseases are a major threat to food security in Africa. Diseases of cassava reduces yield and can cause losses up to 80% and in worse situations, a total loss of produce. This makes it extremely important for farmers to employ all sustainable cassava diseases prevention methods to ensure food security in Africa.   Household cassava peels utilization has low value and is therefore not a focus of male interest in Ghana and Nigeria but if value is added, this dynamic may change. This was different in Vietnam where peels are processed generationally for additional household income.
