Cassava (Manihot esculenta Crantz) is a staple food crop in Africa, Latin America and Asia. However, the rapid post-harvest physiological deterioration (PPD), a unique phenomenon in harvesting storage roots, has become a major constraint for extending cassava shelf-life compared with other root crops. PPD is an active process involving in the changes of gene expression, novel protein synthesis and secondary metabolite accumulation. Undesirable vascular streaking developed quickly was observed in the harvest storage roots and then caused deterioration within 2-3d. Because of PPD phenomenon, cassava storage roots have to be consumed soon after harvest. .
