Abstract


The study aimed to assess the quality of the granulated cassava products in Isabela and South Cotabato in the Philippines by describing the granulation practices, characterizing the granulated cassava products and the effect of the quality of granulated cassava products to the supply and income of the farmers and traders in study sites. Results showed that in Isabela practiced wet granulation while dry granulation in South Cotabato. Based on the Philippine National Standards on cassava dried chips and granules, around 40% and 50 to 67% of the granule sizes of Isabela and South Cotabato were not acceptable in the major feed manufacturing market for cassava. This resulted to low quality of cassava granules and low income for Isabela farmers and South Cotabato traders. In per hectare basis, Isabela farmers producing Class B granules received PhP1,200 and PhP1,370 lower than the Class A (good quality). In terms of volume, quality loss incurred by Isabela farmers recorded 0.80mt per hectare and 2.23mt per hectare for South Cotabato traders. Thus, appropriate granulation facility is needed by the Philippine cassava industry.

Author Keywords: wet/dry granulation, quality loss, supply, income, appropriate facility.
