Abstract: Kosrae is one of four states in the Federated States of Micronesia. Subsistence farming and banana production are the main agricultural enterprises. The main subsistence crops are banana, breadfruit, citrus fruit, coconut, and taro. Among the four types of forest, the swamp forest is used for growing taro. Most of the taro is planted in the swamp area, and very few farmers grow taro on dry land.
