Interpretive Summary:

Technical Abstract: Huay Bong 80 is a new cassava (Manihot esculenta Crantz.) variety developed by researchers from Kasetsart University cooperating with the Thai Tapioca Development Institute (TTDI). This new variety has been protected by the Thai New Plant Variety Protection Act of B.E. 2542 (AD 1999) from January 4, 2010 – January 3, 2022. This new variety is the F1 progeny from the cross between Rayong 5 and Kasetsart 50. Huay Bong 80 has high root yield potential and high root starch content. When compared with other varieties, such as Kasetsart 50, Huay Bong 60, and Rayong 5, it has similar yield to Huay Bong 60 but higher than Kasetsart 50 and Rayong 5. For root starch content, Huay Bong 80 was the best. According to 93 yield trials during 2001 – 2010, Huay Bong 80 showed the best performance in starch content when compared with other three varieties (Kasetsart 50, Huay Bong 60, and Rayong 5). Huay Bong 80 had the highest starch content in 75 yield trials and the second highest starch content in 18 trials. Nine years of yield trials demonstrated that the variety “Huay Bong 80 (HB 80)” not only has high root yield but also superior and stable starch content.
