The study was conducted in Doma Local Government Area (DLGA), of Nasarawa State in Central Nigeria.  The local government area is prominent for the production of cassava tubers and is made up of five districts.  There are a total of 10 villages in the five districts.  Ten women participating in cassava processing in each village were randomly selected making a total of 100 respondents for the study but only 73 of them were finally used for the study.  Data were subjected to descriptive statistics involving means, frequencies and percentages.  The finding of the study was that 84.0 percent of the respondents claimed non-existence of modern processing technologies recommendation in the study area.  Efforts should be intensified by relevant authority to persuade researchers to develop appropriate processing technologies commensurate with literacy level, skills of the processors and for the extension system organization to develop appropriate work-plan for the women processors with the view to minimizing their most pressing constraints.
