This expt, that is currently being carried on in Mondomo (Cauca, Colombia) seeks to validate the technology produced by the CIAT Cassava Program, with promising var. and adequate agricultural practices; and to evaluate and compare traditional vs. new technology under farming conditions. A technological package is expected to be obtained on the basis of this evaluation, and after measuring the economic impact produced by this new technology and determining important marketing aspects; this will be implanted by the national agricultural research program and diffused in the area by their technicians. In this 1st stage, a socioeconomic survey was applied to 20 farmers selected at random, 7 of whom (also chosen at random) were willing to prepare 4000 m2 to plant 3 CIAT cv. (CM 323-375, M Col 1684 and CMC 59) in addition to 2 regional var., Algodona and Americana. The 6 proposed treatments are discussed. (CIAT)
