Cassava, “manihot esculenta” is one of the most “disgraced” crops in Africa, of which Ghana is no exception. Cassava is a woody shrub grown in tropical and subtropical regions. The shrub produces a starchy, edible root that is a major source of carbohydrates for humans in many parts of the world. This crop plays a major role in the economic fortunes and nutritional health of millions in the developing world.
