Abstract
A field experiment evaluated effects of organic inputs on crop yield and quality and incidence of pocket rot, which commonly diminishes non-flooded taro yields by a quarter to a third. Considering the costs of organic inputs, enumerated in the publication, yield increases due to the amendments were not economically justified, at least in the short term; the experiment did not continue in order to assess long-term benefits and economics.
