The different environments (combinations of climatic and edaphic conditions) in which cassava is grown in South America are classified, and the most probable differences between one agroecozone and the next based on environmental factors affecting the cassava plant are presented. A hierarchical approach is used for soil and climate classifications. Specific maps for climates, soils, and a combination of climate-soil homologues for cassava in South America are presented as well as a map of cassava distribution. (CIAT)
