Survivors Garden: Manioc

Nature doesn’t mean nothing. If you want to plant it yourself, it’s not a problem. But it’s “seasonings.” It was a real poison, it was a real poison, it was a real poison, it was a real poison, it had to be accumulated.

An illustrative example is cassava – this plant accumulates the glycosides, which are in contact with the air, form acetone and cyanide. 400 grams of cassava root Smaller amounts simply cause a passion upset stomach. However, the cunning humanity found a way to eat cassava and stay alive.

But why do we need to know all this? Why not grow simpler and safer crops, such as the same yam or potato? And because cassava an order of magnitude stronger than them. Drought? Not scary. Bad soil? Don’t care Pest invasion? Hydrocyanic acid to help them. At the stage of intensive development, cassava grown almost everywhere. This is, as you understand, it’s about where the country’s economy is. It can be used as a protein. So.

general information

Manioc – perennial shrub of the euphorbia family. Yes it is. A distant relative of milkweed with milk bitter and irritating juice. Only cassava Since now, it has been a great deal to have there. It can be flourished, it can be flourished.

Initially cassava It was even more popular than yams or potatoes. And then the colonialists spread it around the world. It was especially liked by the Africans, who always had problems with agriculture. But, unfortunately, you have been unable to follow the correct rules. Moreover, long-term intake of under-treated tubers can cause neurological disorders. It is not necessary to continue to grow and process cassava according to a simplified scheme.

According to the content of glycosides cassava divided into “sweet” and “bitter.” In the former, it is concentrated. It is much more difficult to get rid of them. Why, then, did humanity not completely switch to “sweet” varieties? And the roots are much bigger and they grow much better. The second option is much preferable.


Basically, some varieties cassava For example, it can be used to reduce the number of seeds. This is why we can’t need to be saved for a long time in their raw form. For the cutting of the trunk, it is usually used, which is then bluntly buried in the ground. There are two options for landing – vertical and horizontal. In the first case, it is necessary to achieve the depth of 10 centimeters. Both options are ably abundant watering until the emergence of new shoots. After that, the watering can be significantly reduced.

Landed cassava so that there is a distance of 90 cm between the individual rows. In addition, it is 40 centimeters in height. It will help you to avoid.

I usually use it for germinate even after several months of “hibernation.” The temperature of 20 degrees. The land, or the use of greenhouses, or live in the southern regions. It is a significant disadvantage. cassava will not be ripened for a long time. Nevertheless, there are early ripening varieties, which are only enough for six months.

As for the soil, cassava prefers loose soils with good aeration. Ideal sandy loam and loam. It should be loose and provide good drainage. At a rate of 20 kg per 10 square meters of soil. Grams per 1 square meter.


Manioc practically does not require care. That is what he is beautiful about. If you need to take care of it, then you’ll need to do it. You aren’t been comfortable with them. The acid is deadly to them.

Since the winter of the short summers has been for ripening tubers. That is why cassava most often grown in pots that can be transported into the room. But if you try to insulate the soil. Warming – it will go in business. The main thing – to prevent freezing of the soil. The roots are unlikely to survive.

Collection and processing

The main criterion for readiness cassavaand – formation of seeds. In this case, you need to leave hemp somewhere 30 centimeters in height. For the cassava. It is not a problem for the roots. For example, it doesn’t die. Create favorable conditions cassava begins to grow next year,

The roots cassava therefore, it is possible to not be stored for a long time. It has been shown that the skin has been cut off. The method works for both “sweet” and “bitter” varieties. In this case, all hydrocyanic acid volatilizes and cassava becomes suitable for making flour. It is necessary to reduce the amount of heat.

It has been found that it has been used to remove the hydrocyanic acid. 6 hours is enough that cassava become safe.

Summarizing. Manioc – a special crop. It is not until the end of the world that it is warming. And then he will really show all his effectiveness. In this meantime, this information is largely useless. However, remember about cassava need to. You never know how the climate situation will change.
