CassavaCassava can withstand periods of drought. However, it is susceptible to water deficit during its first three months after planting. Water stress during its early period of growth can significantly affect the development of its roots and shoots, which can later translate to drastic yield reduction.

Planting methods must adapt to soil moisture conditions. Stakes planted at a 5 to 10 cm depth on heavy and wet soils and slightly deeper on the dry and light-textured ground have a higher chance of survival. (Source: FAO)
