The Cassava Monitoring Survey (CMS) project was funded by the CGIAR-RTB Program and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. The main goal was to carry out a study on cassava adoption and diffusion patterns in Nigeria. This includes explaining why farmers are adopting certain varieties and describing preference differences across regions and gender. This specific study and report is part of Component IV of the broader CMS Project, and it covered gender-differentiated, end-user surveys on varietal and trait preferences. The objective of this component was to use qualitative methods to probe deeper into some of the information that was obtained in the quantitative survey on gender-based trait preferences and seed dissemination pathways.
