Tapioca also known as cassava is a tuber
crop brought to Kerala by the Portuguese and is being cultivated there since then.
specific gravity, dry matter and starch contents are critical in determining the quantity and quality of both products of industries (starch) and processed foods (French fries and chips) [10, 11].
Nighttime temperatures below 17[degrees]C and daytime temperatures between 23 and 25[degrees]C are the most favorable for tuber
production (HELDWEIN et al.

According to , the substrates of soil, and farmyard manure in equal ratio by volume were appropriate for seedling tuber
production in nursery beds.

The typical symptoms are characterized by appearance of black coloured sclerotia on the tuber
surface and brownish necrotic lesions on stem and stolon which can kill the eyes, delay in emergence, increases tuber
defects (cracks, misshapen, netted skin with reduced quality and market value (Fig.
Spring plantation produce higher tuber
yield than autumn and winter plantation although the temperature in autumn and winter plantation is more favorable for potato production which could be attributed to the quality of imported seeds is better than locally produced (diseases--physiological age) or because of the advantageous lag time in spring between solar radiation and temperature .

presents students, academics, and working mental healthcare professionals with a collection of academic essays and articles that together provide a comprehensive, case history-based training guide for working with children and adolescents in a wide variety of therapeutic contexts.
In Brief: Research at the USDA suggests that potatoes are still the go-to tuber
when times get tough.
To increase the production and availability of yam during off-season, PhilRootcrops-VSU initiated a project titled, "Improvement of Yam Production System through Tissue Culture Derived Plantlets and Microtubers and Breaking Tuber
Dormancy for Continuous Production of Planting Materials".
New research shows that potatoes--often cultivated as a rainfed crop with little or no irrigation--are still the go-to tuber
when times get tough.

Because of these reports, we investigated the secondary metabolites of the tuber
