This research work, was carried out, to find the importance of computerized analysis on spoilage of plantain, before harvest and carriage to market in Osun State, Nigeria. 3,600 open questionnaires were distributed to the 4 Local Governments, namely: (Ife East, Ife South, Ife Central, and Ife North), local government areas in Osun State, Nigeria. Out of which 900 was used for farmers, in each local government. A total of 36 locations were sampled in all the four local governments, out of which 100 questionnaires were used in each location. It was gathered that above 70% of the farmers supported, the importance of computerized analysis on spoilage of plantain, before harvest and carriage to market in Osun State, Nigeria, while less than 30% of the people could not even understand whether there was the needy, on the importance of computerized analysis on spoilage of plantain, before harvest and carriage to market in Osun State, Nigeria, or not. The results from the questionnaires when using Pearson one-tailed correlation coefficient, however revealed that there was no significant difference from all the farmers visited and sampled, (p < 0. 05), table 5. This shows a strong positive correlation, which implying that, the importance of computerized analysis on spoilage of plantain, before harvest and carriage to market in Osun State, Nigeria, was strongly influenced and enhanced farmer’s support, and had therefore, made this research work to become a reality, (p < 0. 05), table 5. The reasons may be due to the fact that in Nigeria, as one of the major staple food, plantain products is not only commonly used for making DODO (fried ripe pulp), IPEKERE well known as chip (fried un-ripped pulp), and as plantain flour but there is a great potential for the processing of plantain. It could however be processed to food / foodstuffs, such as breakfast cereals, baby food (soy-musa), flour, chips and snacks food. Also, industrial product of plantain processing includes: wine / beer, syrups, vinegar, biscuit, among others. Pie Chart was used to depict the summary data of each of the local government areas sampled.
