Harvesting of cassava roots

56. Harvesting of cassava roots is easy, because the roots start at the stem just below the soil surface.

57. If the soil in your area is light, you can lift the roots by gentle pulling.


Roots by gentle pulling

58. When you lift the roots, take care not to damage them. Damaged roots spoil very quickly.

Cassava roots spoil quickly

59. Cassava roots have a lot of moisture in them and they can spoil quickly. When damaged, the roots spoil even more quickly.

60. Once harvested, the roots cannot be kept for more than two days. You must use or sell them quickly. You can also process them into dried chips or silage.

61. Dried chips and silage keep well. They can be stored for a long time without spoiling.
