Cassava, Maize & Plantain Farm
The opportunities in Cassava farming cannot be overstated. Farm Crowdy reports that at least 1 in 10 families all over the world consumes products made from cassava daily. Cassava, now grown throughout the tropical world, is second only to the sweet potato as the most important starchy root crop of the tropics. The areas now used for cassava cultivation are increasing rapidly because it grows easily, has large yields and is little affected by diseases and pests. The plant is grown for its edible tubers, which serve as a staple food in many tropical countries and are also the source of an important starch. Presently, we plant cassava, maize and plantain on an hectare of land in south-west part of Nigeria.
