    The objective of the taro breeding program for the South Pacific region at the University of the South Pacific (USP) are to develop through a process of hybridization and selection high-yielding, disease- and pest-tolerant ...
  • Primo, Augustine (University of Hawaii, 1993-01)
    Using legends and history, the origin of Colocasia taro on Pohnpei is examined, and its importance culturally and nutritionally is summarized. The most common method of growing taro, integration into the traditional ...
  • Santos, Gibson H (University of Hawaii, 1993-01)
    There are several different varieties of Colocasia taro on Pohnpei, but only eight are commonly known and grown. The general descriptions of these eight common varieties are included in this paper. A survey on the popularity ...
  • Pole, Finau S (University of Hawaii, 1993-01)
    For many generations, taro, together with other root crops, has been a major component of the traditional cropping system in Tonga and is its most important staple. The increasing problem of land shortage has resulted in ...
  • Leung, PingSun; Sato, Dwight (University of Hawaii, 1990-01)
    This study provides an update of the cost and return of Chinese taro production in the Hilo area. Return to management is estimated to be $5,575 per acre per crop. Total fixed costs and variable costs are $1,573 and $4,602 ...
  • DeFrank, Joseph; Easton-Smith, Virginia A; Leong, Gladys (University of Hawaii, 1990-01)
    A preliminary experiment with seven preemergence herbicides identified oxyfluorfen as a promising herbicide for commercial taro (Colocasia esculenta) production in Hawaii. Oxyfluorfen was applied twice at 0.38, 0.56 and ...
  • de la Pena, Ramon S (University of Hawaii, 1990-01)
    The production of new crop varieties through hybridization is the only stable method of crop improvement. As a program, crop improvement through breeding has been a major project of most research centers and institutes. ...
  • Santos, George (University of Hawaii, 1990-01)
    Critical steps of growing a successful crop of dryland taro are discussed. The sequence of steps are pre-plant land preparation, planting, weed control, fertilization, pest control, and harvesting. This article will provide ...
  • Ragus, L N; Almario, V M; Richards, H (University of Hawaii, 1993-01)
    The ecological study of a typical taro farm at Sabana, Rota, Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands (CNMI) was conducted from October, 1990 to June, 1991 to compare the pests associated with taro under low-input, ...
  • Ivancic, Anton; Liloqula, Ruth; Levela, Helen; Saelea, Jimi (University of Hawaii, 1993-01)
    The effect of Alomae-Bobone Virus Complex (ABVC), the lethal disease of taro Colocasia esculenta in the Solomon Islands, on young taro seedlings and on other aroid species has been studied. Young taro seedlings are very ...
  • Hori, Ted M (University of Hawaii, 1993-01)
    Seventeen cultivars were evaluated for dryland taro production under a black plastic mulch with irrigation. Within the cultivars, the development of keikis (off shoots) was erratic. Some mother plants were heavy producers ...
  • Vargo, A M; Fruean, K; Fa'aumu, S; Patea, I; Aieti, R (University of Hawaii, 1993-01)

  • Schreiner, I; Nafus, D (University of Hawaii, 1993-01)
    The effects of fertilization, late weeding, and sucker removal on taro pest populations and yield were compared at two sites with different soils. The first experiment was in an area with shall calcareous soil. Fertilizer ...
  • de la Pena, Ramon S; Melchor, Florendo M (University of Hawaii, 1993-01)
    Mulching and intercropping are old and established practices used by farmers for protecting crops from adverse conditions and increasing productivity. In this study, an upland taro field was prepared using commercial ...

  • Silbanus, S; Raynor, B (University of Hawaii, 1993-01)
    Black pepper (Piper nigrum) is an important cash crop on Pohnpei. Due to its perennial nature and slow growth, black pepper should lend itself to intercropping with annual crops, especially in the first few years ...
  • Sato, Dwight (University of Hawaii, 1993-01)
    Living mulches were compared to weed cultivation and herbicide weed control in dryland taro. The highest No.1 corm yields were harvested from the herbicide and the cultivation treatments. The living mulches tested were ...
  • Lee, James (University of Hawaii, 1990-01)
    Hawaii grown Chinese taro is in high demand in West Coast markets. Disease-free and year-round taro supply in addition to product identification are pre-requisites in establishing a market and meeting foreign competition. ...
