Cassava varieties in Ghana

by Luigi Guarino on March 21, 2012

Call me old-fashioned, but I have a soft spot for this kind of poster. This particular example was at CSIR’s Plant Genetic Resources Institute, Bunso, Ghana. Beats an SSR dendrogram thingie any time.

I am doing a research on a particular type of Cassava known in Ghana as ‘Agege’. This variety is specifically used in processing ‘gari’ a common West African Staple.

Could you please help me with where in Ghana I could get this type and if possible any other name for this “Agege” type of Cassava. I called CSIR in Kumasi but unfortunately they do not know the ‘Agege’. I will be extremely gratful for an email response from you.
