Abstract
Material of 37 cassava hybrids was received from the East African Agriculture and Forestry Research Organization, Amani, for multiplication and further testing in 1952 and 1953. By the long rains of 1955, eight varieties had been selected on the basis of resistance to virus disease and yielding qualities, and further tests were carried out at 32 centres in Tanga and Pangani Districts. The varieties chosen were all third back-cross hybrids from a cross between cassava and ceara rubber (M. giaziol'ii) namely:- 1. 46106/26 5. 4763/16 2. 46106/27 6. 4763/4 3. 46110/8 7. 4759/23 4. 46Q7/4 8. 4760/37
