Cassava processing greatly influences the price value of cassava produce; but processing and marketing through group approach will increase the value addition. Consequently, farmers’ income will definitely increase, there will also be increase in savings habit. The study broad objective was to compare the economic potentials of cooperative and non cooperative members in cassava processing and marketing in agricultural zones of Anambra State. The farmers are poor and cannot access the needed agricultural facilities and technologies to enhance their productivity individually, that is why the rationale to compare their economic potentials through group approach becomes vital. Multistage sampling technique was used to determine the sample size of 287 for cassava farmers that were cooperative members and 294 sample size was equally determined for cassava farmers that were not cooperative members. Data obtained were analyzed with both descriptive statistics and inferential statistics. Evidence from the study revealed that; majority of the both respondents were females. The findings also revealed that the cooperative farmers earned more income from cassava processing and marketing more than those cassava farmers that were not cooperative members. In order to enhance the cooperative approach of cassava processing and marketing among the farmers, the farmers should be encouraged to expand their cassava production capacity. As a matter of necessity, the farmers should be provided with micro production loan and credit. The cooperative society should adopt more innovative processing technologies. Also, the cooperative society should be more informed with current market information and seek for alternative access from other markets to dispose processed cassava.
