Title: Impact of Organic Inputs on Taro Production and Returns 
Author: Miyasaka, Susan C.; Hollyer, James R.; Cox, Linda J.
Date: 2001-07
Publisher: University of Hawaii
Citation: Miyasaka SC, Hollyer JR, Cox LJ. 2001. Impact of organic inputs on taro production and returns. Honolulu (HI): University of Hawaii. 4 p. (Soil and Crop Management; SCM-3).
Abstract: A field experiment evaluated effects of organic inputs on crop yield and quality and incidence of pocket rot, which commonly diminishes non-flooded taro yields by a quarter to a third. Considering the costs of organic inputs, enumerated in the publication, yield increases due to the amendments were not economically justified, at least in the short term; the experiment did not continue in order to assess long-term benefits and economics.
