dc.description.abstract Taro was, and continues to be, an important food for many people world-wide; at least 12.6 billion pounds of the genus Colocasia were consumed in 1987. In Hawaii, ancient lore states that one square mile of taro feed up to 15,000 people for a period of one year, and in 1988, at least 7.7 million pounds of all types of taros, both produced in and imported to Hawaii, were eaten whole or in some processed form. This conference is the first step in a coordinative effort by the public and private sectors to help Hawaii's taro farmers take advantage of new commercial opportunities in the food and industrial use areas. The conference proceedings contained herein provides a wealth of timely information to those taro farmers, shippers and processors who wish to provide a quality product to their present and potential customers. en_US
