The different alternatives for disease control in cassava, reported as efficient and that could be taken into account when designing technological packages for cassava production, are summarized. These are cultu-ral control (crop rotation, planting on furrows, elimination of crop resi-dues, distance between plants, selection of planting material, weeding, and use of irradiation), var. control, chemical control, biological con-trol, erradication, and quarantine measures. Tables are also in-cluded with the results obtained from the application of the different con-trol measures mentioned. There is a need for techno-logical packages for the integrated control of cassava diseases, which should be revised periodically and by regions, to make adjustments according to the ecological circumstances.
