Amino Fertilizers: Why Not Cassava?

Compared to rice and vegetables, cassava is much easier to raise. It's not easily affected by climatic conditions, it does not need much attention and care, it grows almost all by itself, and the demand is enormous. So, why not cassava?

With just minimal amount of fertilizer in the soil and on the plant, cassava is less costly to grow. Just make sure enough fertilizer is applied in the soil (throrough land preparation)--like a liter of BIOnix Max 1 to 200 liters of water per hectare (or 50ml BIOnix in 16 liters water) sprayed on solid organic or chemical fertilizer--then foliar application using Nano BIOnix or BIOnix Max 2 twice or thrice a monthfor 4 months.

San Miguel Corporation buys cassava in bulk, and there's reportedly a great demand, so why not visit the nearest SMC branch to you and inquire about contract-growing cassava? With organic BIOnix amino fertilizers, you can harvest about 10 kilos or even more per tree.

Stick Soaking

Before planting cassava sticks in the ground, it is highly recommended that stick soaking be done. Soak the sticks in 20ml BIOnix Max 1 and 80ml Nano BIOnix plus 20 liters of water. Soak for 12 to 24 hours, then plant. Spray the soaking solution onto the soil. This will boost cassava plant health more, and improve the crop much better.

Easy to Raise

You can leave a cassava plant in the soil and watch it grow and produce the crop all by itself. If the tree and leaves get destroyed in a storm, the root crop will still continue developing. There's not much fuss about raising cassava plants. You are sure to harvest good with it.
