Save and Grow:
Cassava

A guide to sustainable production intensification

Save and Grow: Cassava (FAO, 2013) is the first in a series of guides on the practical application of FAO’s ecosystem-based model of agriculture, which aims at improving productivity while conserving natural resources.

The guide shows how “Save and Grow” can help cassava growers avoid the risks of intensification, while realizing the crop’s potential for producing higher yields, alleviating hunger and rural poverty, and contributing to national economic development.

This Policy brief presents a summary of the 140-page guide, which can be purchased from: publications-sales@fao.org.
