  • Ayres, A S (Hawaii Agricultural Experiment Station, University of Hawaii, 1943-09)
    Rainfall in the agricultural areas of the Hawaiian Islands covers the extremely wide range of from less than 20 inches to more than 200 inches annually. A generally open condition of the soil permits comparatively rapid ...
  • Akamine, Ernest K (Hawaii Agricultural Experiment Station, University of Hawaii, 1944-10)
    Poor germination resulting from dormancy of seeds has been a major problem in use of many desirable species of Hawaiian range grasses. Dormancy in seeds is the result of one or more of the following conditions: (1) presence ...
  • Willett, E L; Henke, L A; Work, S H; Maruyama, C; Ross, Winifred (Hawaii Agricultural Experiment Station, University of Hawaii, 1948-02)
    Garbage is the main feed for swine in the Territory of Hawaii because of the high cost of other concentrates commonly fed to hogs. An extensive study has therefore been made of the value of garbage as a feed for swine. ...
  • Vinacke, Winifred R; Hartzler, Eva; Tanada, Yoshinori (Hawaii Agricultural Experiment Station, University of Hawaii, 1950-03)
    Factors affecting the nutritive value and use of processed rice In Hawaii have been studied. Twenty-two samples of processed rice have been found to have an average thiamine content of 193 micrograms per 100 grams. Processed ...
  • Nordfeldt, Sam; Henke, L A; Morita, K; Matsumoto, H; Takahashi, M; Younge, O R; Willers, E H; Cross, R F (Hawaii Agricultural Experiment Station, University of Hawaii, 1952-07)
    Leguminous plants have long been considered important as livestock feeds in Hawaii. They decrease the need for costly oil cakes and protein rich concentrates in milk and meat production. Indigofera endecapliylla Jacq. ...
  • Chang, Annie Tom; Sherman, G Donald (Hawaii Agricultural Experiment Station, University of Hawaii, 1953-03)
    An investigation of the nickel content of some representative soils from the Great Soil Groups of the Hawaiian Islands and the plants growing on them was made to obtain more information on the distribution of nickel in ...
  • Urata, Ukio (Hawaii Agricultural Experiment Station, University of Hawaii, 1954-06)
    The purpose of this work was to study the floral morphology and behavior of macadamia, especially regarding pollination; determine whether commercial varieties are self-fertile or self-sterile; seek suitable pollenizers ...
  • Sherman, Martin; Tamashiro, Minoru (Hawaii Agricultural Experiment Station, University of Hawaii, 1954-06)
    This is a thorough description of the taxonomy and life cycle of weevil pests of sweetpotato. Natural and cultural controls are discussed, and laboratory experiments with pesticides are reported.
  • Tanada, Y; Holdaway, F G (Hawaii Agricultural Experiment Station, University of Hawaii, 1954-10)
    The present study concerns the feeding habits of the tomato bug, Cyrtopeltis (Engytatus) modestus (Distant), and the unusual feeding lesions produced on tomato plants. Existing information on the feeding habits and the ...
  • Orr, Kathryn J; Miller, Carey D (Hawaii Agricultural Experiment Station, University of Hawaii, 1955-05)
    Quick-freezing of Hawaii fruits is a comparatively new process in the Islands, and much work is needed to determine the methods that will provide products of high quality. Mangos grow on all the Hawaiian Islands, but not ...
  • Arisumi, Toru (Hawaii Agricultural Experiment Station, University of Hawaii, 1956-01)
    A condition for the certification of fresh papayas shipped to the mainland United States, as set forth by the USDA Bureau of Entomology and Plan t Quarantine, is that these fruits be either fumigated with EDB (ethylene ...
  • Uehara, Goro; Sherman, G Donald (Hawaii Agricultural Experiment Station, University of Hawaii, 1956-12)
    A study was made of the mineralogical constitution of the soils of the red and black complex of the Hawaiian Islands. The application of differential thermal analysis established kaolin as the dominant mineral in the red ...
  • Awada, Minoru; Ikeda, Warren S (Hawaii Agricultural Experiment Station, University of Hawaii, 1957-01)
    The experiment reported in this paper was conducted to observe the effects of water and nitrogen, differentially applied, on (1) leaf composition, (2) growth of the plants, (3) concentration of sugar in the fruits, (4) ...
  • Nakamura, Martha; Sherman, G Donald (Hawaii Agricultural Experiment Station, University of Hawaii, 1958-02)
    The Hawaiian Islands were formed from basaltic lavas, some of which have high concentrations of pyroxene and olivine. Since chromium is associated with the foregoing minerals, it is reasonable to assume that the element ...
  • Awada, Minoru (Hawaii Agricultural Experiment Station, University of Hawaii, 1958-06)
    Papaya plants of the Solo variety, derived from seeds whose plants were bearing uniformly few carpellodic flowers and fruits, were planted at three levels of elevations at the Hawaii Agricultural Experiment Station farms ...
  • Akamine, Ernest K; Girolami, Guido (Hawaii Agricultural Experiment Station, University of Hawaii, 1959-03)
    The development on the use of the yellow passion fruit (Passiflora edulis forma flavicarpa Degener) for beverage, ice cream, sherbet, pastries, and other confectionaries has resulted in increased plantings of this crop in ...
  • Bess, Henry A; Haramoto, Frank H (Hawaii Agricultural Experiment Station, University of Hawaii, 1961-06)
    The Oriental fruit fly, Dacus dorsalis Hendel, was first found in Hawaii in 1945 (van Zwaluwenburg, 1947). During the following year it increased to epidemic populations and caused serious damage to many crops throughout ...
  • Yamane, G M; Nakasone, H Y (Hawaii Agricultural Experiment Station, University of Hawaii, 1961-06)
    The low natural fruit set of acerola in Hawaii, attributed to absence of pollen transferring agents, indicated the feasibility of growth regulator application to induce fruit set. Among the several growth regulators tried ...
  • Van't Woudt, Bessel D; Uehara, Goro (Hawaii Agricultural Experiment Station, University of Hawaii, 1961-10)
    Bauxite is an aluminum-rich end product of soil weathering under certain conditions of favorable drainage in tropical regions. The ore is thus concentrated at the surface and its mining entails stripping the soil for some ...
  • Nakamura, Martha T; Sherman, G Donald (Hawaii Agricultural Experiment Station, University of Hawaii, 1961-10)
    The vanadium contents in the surface horizons of the Hawaiian soils range from 190 ppm to a high of 1520 ppm, with an average of 450 ppm. The very high concentrations are confined to the Humic Ferruginous Latosol Group. ...
