Cassava variety

Cassava (manioc)    Kenya

Are you familiar with the Tajirika variety of cassava grown in coastal Kenya?

What are the common diseases to look out for regarding this variety?

Am not so much familiar with the variety since it's not yet in Uganda here but what I know tajirika variety of cassava is resistant to CBSD and CMD but brown leaf spot and blight can still affect it

Hi, You can check the overall growth of the plant just by a small check over leaves - if you find any abnormal patches like curls, spots, or worm eaten or any other irregularities happened in leaves of the plant, then it could be a sign of diseases. Take a look at the common disease affecting plants and trees here. https://ariesagro.com/
