  An experiment was conducted at Chiredzi Research Station to evaluate the effect of planting technique on cassava establishment. Seven planting techniques: Inclined, forming 45 to 60° angle with the ridge, but leaving one-third above ground (I1/3); inclined, forming 45 to 60° angle with the ridge and the soil covering the whole cutting (ICOV); vertical planting leaving one third of the cuttings above ground level (V1/3); vertical with the soil covering the whole cutting (VCOV); horizontal, at 10 cm below the top of the ridge (H10); horizontal at 15 cm below the top of the ridge (V15); and horizontal 20 cm below the top of the ridge (H20) were evaluated in the experiment. Vertical planting leaving one-third above ground had significantly (P=0.05) the highest establishment. The low crop establishments were observed from horizontally planted cuttings where crop establishment decreased with depth of planting giving 36, 33 and 15% for materials that were planted at 10, 15 and 20 cm below ground respectively. Soil temperatures were within the optimum temperature range for sprouting and therefore did not affect sprouting.
