This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

Take a vacation up to the north east of the country, you'll see plenty of drying stations and casava fields and I'm sure someone would sell you some
The sticks you will see put up there are used for planting in the next rainy season. Those are too valuable to sell per metric ton.
Usually each cassava plant produces 2-3 sticks each one able to make about 6 cutting 25cm long, each one able to make a new plant.
Unless the cassava production is growing 10 times every year 90% of the sticks cut during harvest must not be needed after planting season.
So i am interested in the dried leftovers.
Yes, most of of the sticks (leftovers) in Cambodia are simply burned on the fields. They're generally too thin to be used for planting. You are interested in those leftovers. What price are you thinking about per metric ton? On average, how many dried 'leftover' sticks do you guess make a metric ton?
