Abstract: Hawaii is one of the volcanic areas of the world.
Volcanic ash is widespread throughout the area,
and many soils contain ash as part of their parent
material. The soils derived from volcanic
ash contain predominantly amorphous mineral
colloids that have high chemical activity. The
Hydrol Humic Latosols on which sugarcane is
grown have received much study, but the volcanic
ash soils in the higher elevations have not.
This study provides information about these
soils located at higher elevations.
