Abstract.Indonesia is the second country producing Cassava, Manihot esculenta Crantz after Nigeria. Lampung Province is a Cassava central land in Indonesia, with total production of 7,39 million tons in 2015. However, there are still many Cassava cultivation production constrain, such as Fusarium wilt disease. The disease is caused by the fungus Fusarium oxysporum, which until now still cannot be effectively addresed. So far the farmers have eradicated the fungus by using fungicides, which have adverse impacts on the environment, so the need for biological control of the disease by using a superior variety resistant to Fusarium oxysporum. Fusaric acid is a toxin produced by Fusarium oxysporum fungus which is mostly done on in vitro selection in plants. Disease resistance can be obtained by induced resistance. The purpose of this study was analyze the content of the reducing sugar of Cassava plantlet after induced fusaric acid in vitro. The research using Completely Randomized Design, of one factor, with fusaric acid concentrations consist of 5 levels 0 ppm, 60 ppm, 80 ppm, 100 ppm, dan 120 ppm in Murashige and Skoog medium. Data analysis using Analysis of Variance with 5 percent significance level. The results of this study indicate that the increased concentration of fusaric acid, then also increases the reducing sugar content in the Fusarium oxysporum resistant Cassava plantlet. Key Words: Cassava mutant, Fusarium Wilt., Reducing Sugar, Resistant
