Isabela corn farmers shift to cassava


CAUAYAN CITY, Isabela: Corn farmers are now shifting to cassava farming as dry spell continues to wreck the province. City agriculturist Rufino Arcega said farmers save more from planting cassava that requires small capital compared to corn farming. He said around 3,200 hectares of farmlands in the city are already planted with cassava, a root crop which is resilient to the effects of climate change. Farmers were also assured of a ready market.
