Cassava(Manioc) which supplies food to one billion people worldwide originated in South America and is mainly cultivated in Sri Lanka’s tropical and subtropical regions. Cassava plays an important role in solving food problems as it grows well and produces good yields under severe conditions such as drought, heat stress, complex conditions in the climate and soil. It is a versatile crop that can be processed into a wide variety of products including meal, beer, cassava chips and feed for animals. Sri Lanka is a high potential destination for manufacturing Cassava, as there are several locations across the country with suitable land and experienced farmers.
