This study presents cassava’s trends in production, trade, and utilization for Brazil, Colombia, Cuba, Haiti, Paraguay, Peru, and Venezuela. This report also analyses the constraints and opportunities for system development in these countries.
Cassava (Manihot esculenta Crantz.) is one of the most important cash crops in Thailand. It is planted in about 1.2 million hectares, producing 17.7 million mt each year. About 50- 60% of this production serves as a raw material for cassava chips and pellets. These are exported to be mixed into livestock feeds, mainly to the European Common Market and some countries in Asia.
