Cassava does, however, respond to fertilizer applications, and in many areas, yields can be sharply increased by fertilization. Cassava researchers have emphasized the use of stable host-plant resistance, biological control, cultural and phytosanitary practices, and, as a last resort, a limited use of : James H. Cock. the yuca or cassava root commandeered from Taíno farms. Bitter yuca from which cazabe was made is a poisonous tuber that the Taíno processed by squeezing out the toxic juice, baking the flour on a flat griddle.
