dc.description This publication serves as an update to the Farm Management Report No. 17 entitled "Cost and Return of Dry Land Taro Production in Hawaii: 1984" (Marutani, 1984) en_US
dc.description.abstract 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 respectively. Estimated breakeven price is 20.6 cents (per Ib of taro corm) to cover total costs. For a newly established operation which has to purchase hulis, return to management is reduced by the cost of hulis of $1,245 to $4,219, and breakeven price to cover total costs is estimated to be 25.1 cents. Using an optimal fertilization schedule as derived from a recent experiment, return to management can be increased by $2,500 per acre per crop and breakeven price to cover total costs is estimated to be 19.2 cents. en_US
