CONGO’S HIDDEN BEAUTY: CASAVA IN FARMER’S FIELD – A CASE FROM SO

Cassava offers a particular interest for the pulse industry as well as for people’s nutrition. Cassava is a culture of subsistence and its nutritional and social uses are very important in the bush. Its leaves and its roots are consumed in many forms. Cassava consumption covers 60% of the caloric needs. Cassava was the fourth vegetable production in 1992 (with 92.842.00 tons). In North Kivu it seems that farmers know about the symptoms and the propagation modes of the disease that destroy cassava, “the mosaic”. The study aims to determine the loss that touches the cassava. Cassava is our base food/staple. It is a rustic plant that is found everywhere is the DR Congo. This is the most important staple food for the population that covers more than 60% of the calories consumed. In Mwenga in south Kivu, cassava is very cultivated but unfortunately, the mosaic, a viral disease has destroyed this plant who made the beauty of our fields.
Ruzizi’s plain gets an yearly average of precipitations of 8819 mm. In our fields, the infection appears between 0 and 3 months. This study shows how at different times the mosaic destroys the cassava and weakens the populations who live in South Kivu.
Farmers know already the reality. They are looking for institutions, NGOs to help them fight this mosaic disease.
OSODI the organization
Update on the agricultural, nutritional and economic importance of cassava; the pests that erase and impede its growth affect our lives as well as those of various households who live from cassava farming. Farming manioc allows those families to get some income from its sale in the market. This income helps them buy some farm animals and to pay for their children’s school fees.
