The results are evident in their highly productive systems, with yields averaging 17–20 t ha−1 and up to 19 30–35 t ha−1 in intensive systems in Paraná and Mato Grosso do Sul states. This has been due mainly to better soils, larger farms and better managers, but also, to a strong demand by cassava processors for cheap raw material, expanding production technology demand and adoption. Colombia Perhaps the Latin American country with the highest agroecological diversity, Colombia hosts a wide range of systems for cassava cultivation and utilization.
