Reasons Why Cassava Farming Is Easy And Profitable?

    Cassava is one of the easiest crops to cultivate as it does not require sophisticated environmental conditions. Cassava is very much adaptive to climate change as it can resist high temperature, drought. Cassava grows well on all types of soil with an exception of heavy or saturated soil. Though it gives preference to light, well drained and deep soil rich in organic nutrients. Cassava is tolerant to high temperature as it thrives well on tropics and sub-tropical regions. It tolerates long dry seasons (6 to 7 months) as well as reduced rainfall. Cassava is very good at weed control because ones the plant is around 6-7 weeks, it already forms canopy with its leaves, therefore, considerably reducing weed emergency. Thus reducing cost of weeding and herbicide application. Also due to its hardy nature, cassava does not require irrigation facility as it can adapt and tolerate adverse weather conditions.

 I think it's more than a fertile land. Its more of a DNA thing. The stock of that cassava should be preserved and bred till a stable stock is achieved. I won't be surprised if the stem has been destroyed and the entire tuber consumed though. Knowledge is power"
