This guide is in response to demands from cassava stakeholders on the Cassava Matters WhatsApp group and the Knowledge Attitude and Practices study (KAPs) that was conducted by the IITA-led Cassava Weed Management Project. This easy-to-read reference manual for farmers will help them to cultivate cassava better and increase their productivity. The three dimensions of weed control: cultural, mechanical, and chemical are captured and illustrated in a logical and simplified manner. Our aim is that farmers and other extension service actors reading this guide will be properly informed about critical aspects of cassava cultivation, and will be able to pass on this information to others.
