In 1902 tho Unied Slates Experi
ment Station Investigated methods
which could be used to reclaim laro
patches where rot was prevalent and
the results obtained by liiniiig'should
Indues growers who are having dll!!
cully to give the method a tliorou;;h
trial. There is little available infor
mation regarding the organism which
causes taro rot but Its scientific as
pects are being r.tudied at the Rt.it ion.
To fpiote from Bulletin Xo. 2 of
this station, now out of print:
The conditions in the experiment
al plot previous o the beginning of
the experiment were the wor.it that
could possibly be obtained in the lo
cality. The crop harvested in llial
was very badly diseased, and the
htilis from this crop were used in the
experiment, but with all these adverse
conditions, tho yield from the experi
menial plot has been greater than
in any similar area in the Kalihi
District, being at tho rate of lfi tons
to the acre. This is mui H above the
Most of the fields in water taro have
been in this crop for many years, and
many have not received fertilization
for a long time, though the ancient
growers were accustomed to add tree
leaves, taro plant waste, etc., for
this purpose. As a result of contin
uous cultivation, lack of fertilization.
mil the decomposition of the starch
of the rotten taro left in the soil the
latter has become acid, and the plant
food unavailable to such an extent
as to be unsuitable to tho best tlevel-
ptncnt of the plants.
For badly diseased tlie following
treatment is suggested : After the
rop is pulled, drain off tho water, ap
ply ground burnt lime (agricultural
lime) at the rate of 2 tons to the acre
(coral sand might be substituted at
the rate of 4 tons to the acre). Dit;
n the lime or sand and thoroughly
incorporate it with the soli. Allow
the patch to stand at least a month
without water. Just before (he hulis
are planted apply a complete ferti
lizer at the rate of 500 lbs. to the
acre. (When obtainable a fertilizer
containing large amounts of available
phosphoric acid and potash, and a
moderate amount of nitrogen).
Harrow the fertilizer into the soil.
Two or three months after the hulls
are planted, to force growth apply
about ICO lbs. of nitrate of soda, the
water first having been drained off
so that the fertilizer can be worked
into the soil where it will be of most
use to the plants. It appears that tho
patches can be safely drained during
the first three months. After the
eighth month the water must not be
drained off or rot will result. Tho
fact that this taro is at home along
tho edge of running streams should
b ekept in mind and the water in the
patch not allowed to stagnate.
The following conditions are all im
portant in securing a good crop of
