dc.description Sweet manioc (also called cassava; Manihot utilissima) is a plant originally from South America that produces large edible tubers. It grows abundantly even in poor soil and therefore is often included in the swiddens of Malayan Aboriginal farmers. Here a woman digs shallow holes, while two youngsters cut foot-long sections of manioc stems, which they will place at an angle in the holes and partially cover with earth. New plants will sprout from the stem cuttings and produce edible tubers in as little as six months.
