As an easy staple, garri processing in Ghana is indispensable (In western Africa). Because cassava is adaptable and drought resistant and barren. In Ghana, the planting area of cassava should be with plenty sunshine, the area of deep and loose soil is good for the growth of cassava. Cassava is suitable for deep ploughing and sunning in a land with abundant organic matter, good drainage and sufficient fertility. When tying the ground, the height of weeds shall not be higher than 10-15 cm; and the soil in the ploughing layer is ground up and dug up to make sure the soil layer is deeply loose and breathable, so as to improve the capacity of water storage, fertilizer conservation and drought resistance of the soil.
