  1. BBC version “Farmers in Ghana are planting cassava plants on field margins which produce huge amounts of nectar, attracting bees and other species, leading to higher yields [in associated vegetables]” This is referenced in the FAO version as coming from Nassar, N.M. 2003. Gene flow between cassava, Manihot esculenta Crantz, and wild relatives. Genetics and Molecular Research, 2(4): 334–347. However, Nassar makes no mention of nectar or bees. What is going on? Are the authors of the FAO report making facts up (or is my seach engine on the blink)?
