Harvest and post-harvest of cassava in Brasil: a case study.

By J. L. L. DANTAS and M. A. P. da. CUNHA


The cassava, originary from Brasil. received little attention from agricultural research institutions in the past. Its wide adaptation to the most diverse edaphic and climatic conditions as well as the traditional knowledge about this crop accumulated through many years of cultivation as subsistence crop did not motivate researchers to improve some of the primitive cultural practices utilized by the low-income farmer. A small number of cassava studies were carried out in a few states up to 1969. From that time up to 1975, a huge local research program was undertakem by the staff of the Escola de Agronomia da Universidade Federal da Bahia, which set the foundations for the actual Cassava National Research Program coordinated by the CNPMF. This research center has its headquarters in Cruz das Almas, State of Bahia.1981Memória
