The study examined Policy improvement and Cassava attractiveness. The purpose was to determine the optimum rewards using three strategies: Selling of farm produce to harvesters, making wholesale of harvested outputs, and retailing harvested outputs. Survey design was employed on 360 farmers and Howard policy improvement technique was used to forecast expected rewards to cassava farmers in the three local government areas. Results showed that Cassava farmers can maximize their earnings from cassava by retailing at the local markets in Oredo and Egor local government areas and by making wholesales at Ikpoba Okha Local government area. Using this policy, they will realize approximately N2360 per Basin and approximately N33040 per plot of 100ft × 100ft. This will translate to N143724 per acre (4.35 plots of 100ft2).
