Abstract: The acceptance of improved cassava varieties in any locality at any given time as a result of the interaction factors, lead to learning about the acceptability of improved cassava varieties in general becomes imperative in order to understand the pathways to acceptability. This study revealed the acceptability of improved cassava varieties by cassava processor in Akinyele Local Government Area Oyo state. Multi stage sampling techniques was used, 50% of the ward in the local government was purposively selected. List of registered cassava processor in selected wards was obtained from department of Agriculture and health in Moniya, purposively 50% of cassava processor was selected to give 110 as sample size for the study. The Socio-economic characteristics of the respondents were examined, the respondents source of information on improved cassava varieties, constraints that militating against respondents acceptability and level of acceptability of improved cassava varieties. Frequency and percentage distribution were used to describe the data from Socio-economic characteristics and chi – square and Pearson product moment Correlation (PPMC) were also used to analyzed the data. The result revealed that 78.2% of the respondents had the information source from relative and friends, radio and seminars /workshop. Also 61.8% of the respondents had high respond based on constraints against acceptability. While level of acceptability is low with 61.0%. Chi – square analysis shows that there is no significant relationship between Socio-economic characteristics and acceptability of improved cassava varieties. Also PPMC analysis shows that there is significant relationship between source of information and acceptability (r= 0.245, p=0.0.10).Based on the empirical findings of the study, it could be deduced that respondents acceptability is very low. This may likely to high constraints encountered.
