Abstract
In an experiment on savanna soil, cassava cv. Pata e'Negro was planted on 24 May, 24 June, 24 July or 24 Aug. 1971 and harvested 9, 10, 11 or 12 months later. The highest root yields, 28.8 t/ha, resulted from planting in May and harvesting 12 months later. Yields for the 4 planting dates, respectively, were 24.3, 16, 15.2 and 15.9 t/ha (mean of all harvesting dates).
