    Research of the physiology section was centered on identifying the characters associated with high root yields and quality in cassava under stress conditions. Plant reaction to water stress was studied, specifically regarding growth and yields of var. M Mex 59 and M Col 22 with a period of artificial rain exclusion. Observations were made throughout the stress period and subsequent recovery. Water stress reduced LAI notably although M Mex 59 maintained a LAI approx. twice that of M Col 22 during the stress period. LAI for both var.

    Efforts to develop cassava technology for the vast areas of acid infertile soils were continued Large-scale germplasm screening in the field was begun in Carimagua for tolerance to low levels of P and acidity and in Quilichao, for tolerance to low levels of P. Various fertilizer trials were used to determine: (a) nutrient absorption and distribution within the plant during a 12-mo.

    Some cultural control measures of weeds in cassava are discussed: quality of the material, planting system and density, density x plant type interaction and use of mulching. In order to study the interaction plant type x planting density, var. M Mex 59 (vigorous) and M Col 22 (nonvigorous) were planted in plots of 7500 and 15,000 plants/ha; and 3 levels of weed control were established: complete, intermediate and no control. The vigorous var.

    Multiple cropping, sequential cropping, intercropping, mixed intercropping, intercropping in rows, in strips, relayed intercropping, cropping patterns, monoculture, crop rotation and land equivalent ratio are defined. The characteristics of multiple cropping and intercropping with beans are discussed; for the latter problems of competence are discussed (light, CO2, water and nutrients). Some cultural practices are recommended for cassava/bean intercropping: soil and fertilization type, water availability, propagation material, and weed, pest and disease control.
