    Agricultural Extension Work in Hawaii
    (University of Hawaii, 1929-10) Lloyd, William A.
    This bulletin was the first annual report of the Agricultural Extension Service at the University of Hawaii. The author placed the "beginning of agricultural extension in the Hawaiian islands with Captain Cook," and chronicled the other advancements in the field wrought by "the conscious, purposeful effort of governmental agencies...[and]...organized public educational institutions" prior to the establishment of the Extension Service. The main part of the report serves as a template and manifesto for the new agency, its programs and activities, and included a poem by the author ("A Boy with a Hoe--And a Vision," p. 23) and dedication of an Extension Hibiscus cultivar. Little attention was given to the accomplishments of the indigenous agriculturists, or to the conditions of societal disruption that necessitated the Extension interventions of the colonist authorities.

    Commercial Vegetable Production in Hawaii
    (University of Hawaii, 1932-06) Krauss, F.G.
    The bulletin provided extensive information on establishing and running a commercial truck farm in Hawaii, from acquiring seeds to establishing, maintaining, and protecting the crop, to preparing produce for market. Detailed descriptions of individual crops were given. This information has its place in a theme of the Extension Service, namely to promote agricultural diversification and substitute locally grown produce for imports. The author believed that Hawaii could produce profitably at least 50 percent of the vegetables then imported.

    Commercial Potato Production in Hawaii
    (University of Hawaii, 1931-09) Krauss, F.G.
    Hawaii's average potato yields are better than those of the continental United States but not equal to those of Europe. That they can be made not only equal but better is the thesis of this bulletin.
