Cassava planting under chisel plough

We cancel the soil preparation with disk plough and ridge. We only use a chisel plough for cassava planting from March to April depending of the rainfall pattern. We are able to preserve the soil resources avoiding the soil erosion and a high rate of soil organic matter mineralization. Cassava should also be conducted under rotational sequence with maize under no-till cropping systems.
