ItemLandscape-Level Conservation Planning for Hawaiʻi's Small-Scale Farm Groups( 2015-06-15)Landscape-level conservation planning makes sense for Hawaiʻi's small-scale farmers and natural resources. Small-scale farming in Hawai'i is on the rise. Farmers are producing food to feed their families, to meet the increasing demand for locally and sustainably grown agricultural products, and to move the Islands, which import between 60- 70% of fresh fruits and vegetables alone, toward food self-sufficiency.
ItemConservation Practices for Small-Scale Hawaiian Farms( 2015-06-15)The purpose of this handbook is to provide small-scale farmers on the Hawaiian Islands with the information necessary to implement effective soil management practices on their farms, with specific focus on soil and water conservation. Small-scale farms are becoming more common in Hawai'i as plantation agriculture involving sugarcane and pineapple has diminished, diversified agriculture has gained a firm foothold, and markets for fresh, local produce have expanded. Small-scale farmers are producing food to feed their families, to meet the increasing demand for locally and sustainably grown agricultural products, and to move the Islands, which import between 60-70% of fresh fruits and vegetables alone, toward food self-sufficiency.

ItemHawaii Area-Wide Fruit Fly Integrated Pest Management Program: A Model System(College of Tropical Agriculture and Human Resources, University of Hawaii, 2007)HAW-FLYPM’s package of control techniques are focused around a combination of monitoring and population control methods. Traps with species specific lures are used for monitoring and population elimination. Field sanitation— removing and sequestering or destroying all fruit left in the field is critical to the success of the HAW-FLYPM program. In addition, roosting crops and releases of sterile male flies and parasitoid wasps can be used to enhance the program, if needed.
