  author={Klanarong Sriroth and Kuakoon Piyachomkwan and Vilai Santisopasri and Christopher G. Oates},
Cassava has the reputation of being a drought tolerant crop, however, when deprived of water, plant and root development are affected. This ultimately will translate to an altered starch synthesis expressed by variation of starch quality. The magnitude of which, is influenced by the severity of stress conditions and stage of plant maturity. During early plant development,water stress retards growth, which will only be resumed after the immature plant has received sufficient water. Despite of an… CONTINUE READING
