  1. 2019-11-26 Session: Cassava production is faced with increased pressure from pests and diseases (CMD and CBSD). The management of these virus diseases requires the development or breeding for resistant/tolerant cassava varieties with high yield and preferred by farmers. Cassava research program in...
  2. Abstract - Food Chemistry, 2013 In this study, we extend pioneering studies and demonstrate straightforward applicability of the corrinbased chemosensor, aquacyanocobyrinic acid (ACCA), for the instantaneous detection and rapid quanti- fication of endogenous cyanide in fresh and processed cassava...
  3. Pete Kanaris GreenDreamsFL "Cassava" or "Yuca" grows very rapidly and is extremely dense in calories! It's very easy to propagate and grow Cassava, especially in Florida. It's amazing how much food can be grown on one plant. Josh Jamison with HEART Village, shows us how he harvests and propagates...
  4. Pete Kanaris GreenDreamsFL This is Part Two of how HEART Village uses and grows Cassava! Emily Jamison demonstrates how to prepare this crop and shares some of her favorite recipe ideas! There are actually several effective (& delicious) ways to prep and cook Cassava!
  5. AccessAgriculture Training Video Farmers in Cote d’Ivoire show how they improve their cassava production and restore soil fertility. There are five things to do: use improved varieties that are resistant to the cassava mosaic virus; apply organic matter; apply small doses of mineral fertiliser;...
  6. Abstract - American Journal of Analytical Chemistry, 2014 Cassava (Manihot esculentaCrantz) is a starchy staple food that previous researches have showed to contain cyanogenic compounds, precursors of hydrocyanic acid, undoubtedly toxic for humans. With the aim to determine food security in...
  7. Abstract,Advances in Applied Science Research, 2012 A 45 Litres capacity metallic prototype biogas plant constructed at the National centre for Energy Research and Development, University of Nigeria, Nsukka was used to investigate the anaerobic digestion in generating biogas from three types of...
  8. Subtropical Abundance - Josh Jamison Cassava is one of the major staple foods of humanity, especially in the developing countries of the tropics where it provides a reliable source of calories when other crops may fail. The dense, starchy roots were historically a crucial food source for many...
  9. The ‘Cassava Cyanide Diseases & Neurolathyrism Network’ (CCDNN) is a free worldwide network aiming to eliminate cyanide poisoning, konzo, tropical ataxic neuropathy (TAN) and neurolathyrism. The CCDN Network has nearly 700 members worldwide from 60 countries and is free. If you wish to join...
  10. This book describes the crop and its uses and the technology available for its production and processing.
  11. The purpose of this book is to present a strategy for increasing the income of small farmers and generating socioeconomic development in tropical regions. The strategy consists of setting up an integrated development project for catalyzing technical, financial, and organizational resources so...
  12. 2005-10-01 In Cassava Cyanide Diseases News (CCDN), Issue 4,December 2004, Dr. J. Howard Bradbury wrote about a method of processing cassava that could substantially reduce the cyanide content of flour.
  13. 2005-10-01 Konzo is an irreversible disease that appears suddenly and causes spastic paralysis of both legs. Konzo affects mainly women and children, afflicting thousands in the remote rural areas of Bandundu Province in the Democratic Republic of Congo. It has also been reported from remote rural areas in...
  14. 1992-07-19 Dr. Rosling does not like the statement “cassava contains cyanide.” A food that contained pure hydrogen cyanide could be easily detoxified (it would be driven off as a gas by cooking). If any free cyanide is present in cassava, it can easily be driven off into the air by temperatures over 28C (82...
  15. Cassava is a staple food for over 800 million people in approximately 80 countries, mostly in sub-Saharan Africa, but also in Asia, the Pacific and South America. Cassava contains cyanogens, which protect against pests and predators by producing cyanide. So-called bitter varieties produce more...
  16. AccessAgriculture Training Video On sloping land, rainwater washes away the fertile soil and cassava yields will quickly decline. By reducing soil erosion and building up a healthy soil, you will continue to have a good cassava harvest for many years. English French Khmer Lao Thai Vietnamese
  17. Abstract, Thesis, 2018 This thesis evaluated the impact of fermentation on the nutritive value of cassava root pulp (CRP) and soybean pulp (SBP) as feed for growing pigs. The evaluation was based on four studies (two fermentation and two animal studies). In these, the chemical composition of CRP...
  18. 2016-04-12 Understanding The Cassava Crop Cassava is a perennial shrub It grows to heights of between 1.5-2m (though some may grow to 4m) It is propagated vegetatively by stem cuttings In plant breeding, propagation is by botanical seeds Grown mainly for its starchy and tuberous roots Performs best on a...
  19. IITA, 2009 A training video on rapid multiplication of cassava stem Part 2
  20. Cassava is a tropical root crop, originally from Amazonia, that provides the staple food of an estimated 800 million people worldwide. Grown almost exclusively by low-income, smallholder farmers, it is one of the few staple crops that can be produced efficiently on a small scale, without the need...
  21. IITA Videos, 2009 A training video on the rapid multiplication of cassava stem Part 1
  22. Cassava has a low multiplication ratio compared with other crops, especially seed-propagated crops. Rapid multiplication techniques are available to increase the multiplication ratio. Three types of ministem cuttings can be produced from a cassava stem. After sprouting in nursery beds, or...
