Abstract:In 1989, the US Department of Agriculture's Low-Input Sustainable Agriculture Program funded a study of taro production systems in the American-affiliated Pacific Islands.The primary purpose of the study was to document and test traditional or current methods of crop protection, soil conservation, and maintenance of soil fertility. Insect, weed, and disease checklists were compiled, as well as informal interviews of farmers, wholesalers, retailers, and others. This handbook summarizes the information that was gathered.
