Consideraciones generales para un programa de yuca en el Ecuador uri icon


  • The objectives of a cassava program in Ecuador are listed: the development and introduction of a simple technology that, without high inputs, allows the national av. yield to be increased; the economic, commercial production of cassava on acid, infertile soils of E. Ecuador (Amazonic region); and the dissemination of the technology developed among farmers through practical training. The program was divided into 3 projects which analyze: plant breeding (objectives, introductions, crosses, and advanced trials); agronomy (objectives, regional trials, and cultural practices), and intercropping. The possibilities of receiving training on cassava cultivation at the Centro Internacional de Agricultura Tropical (CIAT) are discussed. (CIAT)
