Abstract: Five plant spacing treatments and four fertilizer timing treatments were applied to Chinese taro grown for 9 months on land previously cropped to edible ginger. From our preliminary interpretation of the results, a 1 x 3 or 1 x 4 plant spacing appears to be the most appropriate. There were no differences between the fertilizer timing treatments, indicating that total fertilizer requirements can be applied early in the growth cycle of taro.
