Root Crop Bulletin #1 – Guide to Growing Cassava Successfully

Cassava, rice and wheat are important suppliers of calories in the diets of Trinbagonians. Cassava is grown mainly by small farmers and is consumed boiled and fried or in soups and pastries. In Tobago farine, made from cassava, is a popular processed product. Consumption is not limited to the home since many fast food outlets do have cassava on their menu on a daily basis. This bulletin is intended to provide agronomic information for the successful cultivation of cassava.
