dc.description.abstract<p>This workshop, planned and organized jointly by CIAT and the ESCAP/CGPRT Centre, will study cassava's recent development and its potential for future expansion in tropical Asian countries. Many of the professional collaborators have been able to attend the workshop through financial assistance provided from their own national resources. This indicates a new and awakening interest in this crop and in developing a research network, the members of which can work together to increase national productivity and utilization of this critical food and feed crop.</p> <p>The objectives of the workshop are to describe and estimate (1) cassava'smarket potential in tropical Asia, (2) new technology as the basis for increasedcassava production, and (3) cassava research and development needs. Individual country reports to be presented discuss cassava's role in the country's agricultural economy and/or improving the country's cassava productivity. In these countries cassava is viewed as a crop with significant development potential since it is adapted to poor soils and low and fluctuating rainfall patterns. This is particularly important because most land available for development in Asia is characterized by poor soil and climatic conditions.</p>
