Abstract: To develop the cassava sett planter measurement of cassava physical properties were needed. However, there is no instrument has been developed to analyse the physical properties of cassava. Cassava physical properties apparatus were designed by using of solid works software 2016. Construction of the test rig work was fabricated in the laboratory. It consists of trapezoidal frame, feed trough, angle indicator and screw shaft. The angle of feed trough can be adjusted manually by screw conveyor shaft. Cassava setts were placed on a feed trough can be used to measure the Co-efficient of friction, rolling resistance and angle of repose with different moisture contents.
