Cassava (Manihot esculenta Crantz) which is commonly called tapioca reigns as a major source of food to the hungry millions especially of the developing countries across the globe. Cassava is considered as the future food crop as regards to its biological efficiency coupled with ability to sustain under changing climate especially during drought and to grow well in marginal soils. However he aberrant weather conditions in the present scenario create unavailability of good planting material for cassava cultivation. In such situations, minisett cassava cultivation is a good option for rapid multiplication of planting material. This review paper aims to know the scope of minisett technique in cassva and the effects of different nursery techniques such as type of minisett cutting and potting media on the germination and establishment in the nursery as well as in the main field, age of transplanting on crop growth and also presented a brief comparison of minisett cultivation with conventional planting.

Keywords: Minisett nursery techniques, Conventional planting, Cassava
