Sweet!

‘Uala, or sweet potato, was a canoe crop brought to the Islands by the Native Hawaiians and was an important source of nutrition. Find out more about the many heritage varieties at Todd Anderson’s defense of his master’s thesis, “Exploration of Agrononomic Variation in Hawaiian Heritage Sweet Potato.”

Todd, an MS student in Tropical Plant and Soil Sciences (at far right in photo), will present his defense via Zoom on July 31 at 10:00 a.m. Todd’s committee members are Michael Kantar and Ted Radovich from TPSS and Jon-Paul Bingham from Molecular Biosciences and Bioengineering.
