Root Crop Bulletin

Cassava, rice, and wheat are important calorie sources in Trinbagonians' diets. Cassava is grown mainly by small farmers and is consumed boiled and fried or in soups and pastries. In Tobago, farine, made from cassava, is a popular processed product. Consumption is not limited to the home since many fast food outlets have cassava on their menu daily. This bulletin is intended to provide agronomic information for successful cassava cultivation.
