Harvesting Cassava

Cassava Production

Harvesting Stem Cuttings

  • Harvest the stems and roots at maturity period: 12-18 months.
  • The stem should be preserved under a tree shade and the ground kept moist.
  • Ensure only mature and healthy cassava stems are cut and stored.

Harvesting Cassava

  • For long term storage (1-3 months), and/or during a prolonged dry spell, tie the stems into bundles and store upright under a shaded tree and moisten the soil regularly.
  • For short term storage (2-4 weeks), put stems horizontally for support under the shade.
  • Use a wheelbarrow, basket or bicycle to transport cassava from the garden.
