Summary
This multi-author book covers all aspects of cassava biology, breeding, production, crop protection and utilization. The first section of the book is on the origins, distribution and economic importance of cassava, and includes chapters on cassava in South America and the Caribbean, Africa, and Asia and the Pacific. Three chapters in the second section cover botany and physiology, agronomy and cropping systems, and mineral nutrition and fertilization. The section on genetics and crop improvement includes chapters on breeding, genetic resources and conservation, and cassava biotechnology. A crop protection section has chapters on arthropod pests, virus diseases, and bacterial, fungal and nematode diseases. The final two chapters are concerned with utilization, storage and processing of cassava
