Many countries are today confronted with the challenging tasks of improving the level of living and the productive capacities of their people especially in the spheres of agriculture and food production. While governments are mainly concerned with providing structural support the actual implementation lies with the individuals, who in the final analysis are the farmers and the rural population.

Earlier (1950s - early 1970s) development planning in African countries was essentially perceived and conceived as macro-economic planning.

This analysis of global and Asian markets looks at protectionism and substitution (decline in starch trade, rise in trade of cassava feedstuffs) and the Asian regional market for cassava feedstuffs. The degree of substitution between cassava and grains has increased measurably during the postwar period. Cassava's future in world markets depends on its ability to compete with grains; so far this has depended on grain pricing policies and tariff structures of importing countries, making cassava trade more vulnerable than the international grain trade.

In Thailand cassava is produced mainly for export. The Thai cassava industry was based on starch export until the 60s when West Germany began to use CSW for animal feed.

The agricultural economy of Malaysia has traditionally been export-oriented. Cassava was the 1st of the export crops, established in the 1850s. Malaysia is a land-surplus, labor-scarce economy; thus cassava was planted in a shifting cultivation system giving it the image of a soil-depleting crop. Data are also provided on yields, production systems, production costs and labor utilization, and pricing and market efficiency. The national plan through 2000 emphasizes tree crops, which could affect cassava production.

This trend has been increasing greatly over the last twenty years. This occurs because:it is encouraged by governments, planners and multi-lateral donor agencies in an attempt to 'rationalise'the use of rangelands.
