Name it, Cassava can do it!

Cassava is a subsistence crop grown for food by small-scale farmers. It grows well in poor soils and is usually intercropped with vegetables, plantation crops (coconut, palm oil, and coffee), other tubers, cereals, and legumes. Roots can be harvested between 6 months and 3 years after planting.

It is rich in  carbohydrates, calcium, vitamins B and C, and essential minerals. Apart from food, cassava is very versatile and its derivatives  and starch are applicable in many types of foods and industrial products. Cassava chips and pellets are used in animal feed and alcohol production.
