Martinez M., Martinez V. B. R., Arce S. R. Testing of irrigation regime on cassava crop.
Tropical Viandas Series: 83-94.1982, Cuba.
The irrigation regime of cassava, in a brown soil with carbonates in the conditions of Villa Clara, Cuba was studied. It is recommended to irrigate the crop at a level of soil moisture 80% of field capacity during the first 30 days after sowing, with a depth of wetting of the root system of 0.20 m, then it must irrigate to a soil field capacity not less than 70%, at a depth of 0.40 m until 30 days before harvest. The total crop water requirements was 2328 m3 / ha for 7 irrigations applied, obtaining a yield of 38 t / ha. The cossava crop is tolerant to water stress.
