Cassava is not grown to any considerable extent in the United States but this country is the world's largest consumer of cassava products. It's growth and importance was stimulated after 1894. The freezes of that winter destroyed a large part of the orange groves in the United States causing the growers to turn to livestock as a means of livehood. There was a need for a cheap and prolific foodstuff and cassava filled this purpose.

Abstract/Description: The rebirth and reallocations of citrus groves into the more protected regions of the State and the development of adequate transportation facilities for both fruit and produce encouraged the industries above all other agricultural activities in Florida. Attention again has been drawn to the cattle industry in Florida which in turn renews interest in domestic production of cassava.
