  • Description
  • This film features the wonder crop, cassava, a very stable crop, whose roots are extremely rich in starch, providing valuable calories for over 500 million people of the tropics and subtropics. In the last 20 years, it has managed to improve nutrition levels in west and central Africa. Given more attention, it can play a key role against poverty alleviation. The video also contains uncut footage on Benin's market place, cultural programmes and how people earn a living and market in Ghana.
