Increasing Cassava Yields by Improving Soil Fertility
Increasing Cassava Yields by Improving Soil Fertility

Cassava farmers use traditional growing practices learned from their neighbours and communities. Changing the use and timing of fertiliser application can improve yields, but cassava farmers in Cambodia are seen as a small market, so fertiliser companies haven't invested in delivering information services.

In recent years, farmers have noticed their yields declining due to decreasing soil fertility, but there are few products in Cambodia developed especially for Cassava farmers.
