Cassava in Food, Feed and Industry

By C. Balagopalan Copyright 1988

    Cassava (Manihot esculenta Crantz) is the staple food of more than 300 million people in the world. Though cassava is utilized in a variety of ways, scientific books of any category written on the postharvest aspects of cassava are relatively few. The effect of this paucity was strikingly felt during recent years. This was one of the impelling reasons behind the present venture which, it is hoped, will stimulate other publications on this neglected crop.
