Abstract:Howzit! Yes, it has been a long time since our last Taro Tattler. In fact last year we only got to put out one issue, Vol. 5. No. 1, January-August 1993. Actually, we did try to get a Tattler or two together but the dog ate the drafts ...really =:) Anyway, we're excited to have the chance to touch base again with you and fill you in on the latest taro happenings. But, before we start, we'd like to take a minute to say thank you to all who have contributed to the betterment of the taro industry. Folks, the only way taro is going to continue to grow and prosper on all islands is with continued (and perhaps intensified) hard work by those who have most to gain - you! We also need to keep up the lines of communication because there are a number of new taro production projects on the drawing boards out there, and if they all come on line at once or shoot for the same market problems are soon to follow. This may also be true of the many community-based projects, folks we are all in this together as a state not one valley against another. Now today we start with a couple more creative projects from our factitious family, Leilani and Rachael, and their friends. We continue with some information which may help people understand the recurrent "poi shortage", we then present some research results that may be of great value to you, and finally we just saunter though a whole lot of other stuff, so fasten your seat belt.
