Abstract: The focus of this project is on determinants of income from small scale cassava processing activities in Ogo Oluwa local government area Ogbomoso Oyo, State. Multistage random sampling was used to select respondents for the study. Primary data were obtained from 100 cassava processors. Data were analysed using descriptive statistics and regression analysis. The mean age of the respondents was 53.7 years, 98 % were married while 2 % were single. The regression results reveal that the coefficient of the multiple determinations (R2) is 73 %. In all this study reveals that initial capital, labour cost literacy levels are the major factors determining income from the small scale cassava processor. On the contrary the older a processor are the less productive they become.
