Cassava is mainly cultivated with the help of stem cutting. However, it is also possible to propagate them with the help of tubers and stems. This crop can be cultivated throughout the whole year but it is essential to keep your soil moisten for about half a year after plantation on the field. According to cassava planting methods, take care in the plantation. Never plant an immature stem.
Plant a stem having more than 30 cm size and should be cut from a year old mature plant. Also, 4 to 7 nodes on the grafted stem are essential for setting well.
Plant your cut stem in the morning or evening in the cooler weather.
